“Friendship is that sheltering tree which covers you with warmth when you are cold with Sorrow, balms your soul when you are hurt in heart and bandages with love when you bleed inside, Human being ultimately depends on the health of the ecosystems which envelope and sustains us. We exploit ecosystem for the food, water and timber we need for everyday living and depend on ecosystem processes to regulate natural cycles and keep diseases at bay. We rely on them for recreation, mental and spiritual enrichment, intellectual development, reflection and religious experience . It comprises knowledge systems, social relations, aesthetic values and appreciation of nature.” “The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone else believes in him and is willing to trust him with friendship.”
“Friendship is like a precious flower, Ready to bloom every hour. It may stop growing, or keep on flowing, but you’ll still have it forever.”
So pledge to plant at least a tree for the good health of your friend.
