Chinese Proverb

A CPA friend of mine sent me the following and told me that it was an ancient Chinese proverb (Google agrees). I thought it was worth passing along.

“When planning for a year, plant corn. When planning for a decade, plant trees. When planning for life, train and educate people.”


  1. I was googleing the quoted Chinese verb to check it out (because as a Chinese I know for sure the last two sentences but not the first one) and came upon this:

    “Tell me and I'll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I'll understand.”

  2. Wow -- I like that one. In fact, with my style of teaching, I may like it even better. Joe
