The Man Who Planted Trees

From a story by Jean Giono pointed to by Atanu Dey: “For a human character to reveal truly exceptional qualities, one must have the good fortune to be able to observe its performance over many years. If this performance is devoid of all egoism, if its guiding motive is unparalleled generosity, if it is absolutely certain that there is no thought of recompense and that, in addition, it has left its visible mark upon the earth, then there can be no mistake.”

This inspirational story shows what a difference one person can make. Each of us should undertake to do something – small, big, doesn’t matter – which will make a positive difference to the world around us for the future generations.
