The Shade of Trees

I just read a Chinese proverb that said:
"One generation plants the trees, the next gets the shade"
I just have spent the last two days planting longleaf pines.?? It does require a bit of an act of faith to put time, energy and money into something that you know you will never reap the benefits of.?? We all stand on the shoulders of those who come before us.?? I have lived in the shade provided by my parents, grandparents and beyound my whole life.?? I sincerely hope that my own children live in a cool and shady place!
