Quote | Ralph Waldo Emerson

This quote is great:  “And what is a weed?  A plant whose virtues have not been discovered.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

This is so cool to think about.  I first thought about it literally that we give water, love, and attention to roses, tulips, snapdragons, ect. but we spray, pull, and kill weeds.  Just because weeds grow where we don’t want them to and get a tad unruly sometimes, we yank them from the ground taking their lives!  How awful of us!  We do this with many things in life that we don’t fully understand.  We generally don’t take a moment to step back and try to understand things.  If it doesn’t make sense right away, we want nothing to do with it.  I’m going to try and give things a better chance before writing them off.  What do you think?
