“Good timber does not grow with ease:
The stronger wind, the stronger trees;
The further sky, the greater length;
The more the storm, the more the strength.
By sun and cold, by rain and snow,
In trees and men good timbers grow.”
Douglas Malloch, American Poet
This post inspired today by a gentle comment in Humans of New York.
