A Quote by V. T. Neelkantan on mango grove, fossil, story, attitude, mango, benefactor, ill-treated, world, and fruit

The world has continued to demonstrate the ridiculous attitude of men. There is the story of a man condemned as an "old fossil", and called crazy because he thought of planting a mango grove. No one helped him plant, in fact, all deserted him, scoffing and mocking him. Years rolled by, the mango trees grew and brought forth delicious fruit and all the sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters and great-greats ran to the grove and placed up a sign board saying, "This Mango grove belongs to us!"

That's the world. The world has never once thought how it has ill-treated its benefactor.

A Quote by Letty Cottin Pogrebin on family, nest, fruit, boat, possibilities, sport, game, human history, building, baseball, canoe, and orange

If the family were a container, it would be a nest, an enduring nest, loosely woven, expansive, and open. If the family were a fruit, it would be an orange, a circle of sections, held together but separable—each segment distinct. If the family were a boat, it would be a canoe that makes no progress unless everyone paddles. If the family were a sport, it would be baseball: a long, slow, nonviolent game that is never over until the last out. If the family were a building, it would be an old but solid structure that contains human history, and appeals to those who see the carved moldings under all the plaster, the wide plank floors under the linoleum, the possibilities.

A Quote by Hindu Teaching on hindu, sage, guru, king, mango, fruit, taste, sweet, and flavor

A king asked a sage to explain the Truth. In response the sage asked the king how he would convey the taste of a mango to someone who had never eaten anything sweet. No matter how hard the king tried, he could not adequately describe the flavor of the fruit, and, in frustration, he demanded of the sage "Tell me then, how would you describe it?" The sage picked up a mango and handed it to the king saying "This is very sweet. Try eating it!"
