 A traveller through the mountains

came upon an elderly gentleman who was busy planting a tiny oak tree. Knowing that oak trees take many years to mature, he commented to the man “It seems odd that a man of your advanced age would plant such a slow-growing tree!”.

The man replied “I like to live my life based on two principles. One is that I will live forever. The other is that this is my last day.”
