garden man

After a monsoon rain, an old man went out and dug some holes in his garden.
“What are you doing?” his neighbor asked.
“Planting mango trees,” was the reply.
“Do you expect to eat mangoes from those trees? “
“No, I won’t live long enough for that. But others will. It occurred to me the other day that all my life I have enjoyed mangoes planted by other people. This is my way of showing them my gratitude. ~ Anthony de Mello
