If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning, torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day... EB White

The power of persistence
A sunflower plant voluntarily grew up in our front yard garden. It grew quickly, reaching for the stars. Just as it was ready to blossom, deer came by and ate off the top of the plant, blossoms and all. These deer have munched on this plant's foliage a couple of more times. Now we've got this well rooted plant with hardly any foliage at all. Despite these setbacks, it persists in sprouting shoots with small blossoms. Inspiring!
