Gather the flowers, but spare the buds

“Gather the flowers, but spare the buds”   Andrew Marvell

“All our progress is an unfolding, like the vegetable bud. You have first an instinct, then an opinion, then a knowledge, as the plant has root, bud, and fruit. Trust the instinct to the end, though you can render no reason. It is vain to hurry it. By trusting it to the end it shall ripen into truth, and you shall know why you believe”.   Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
