Invest in the millennium.

Plant sequoias.

Say that your main crop is the forest that you did not plant,

that you will not live to harvest.

Say that the leaves are harvested when they have rotted into the mold.

Call that profit.

Prophesy such returns.

Put your faith in the two inches of humus that will build under the trees every thousand years.

— Wendell Berry

And so long as you haven’t experienced

this: to die and so to grow,

you are only a troubled guest

on the dark earth.

— Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
