The lofty pine is oftenest shaken by the winds; High towers fall with a heavier crash; And the lightning strikes the highest mountain.

The lofty pine is oftenest shaken by the winds; High towers fall with a heavier crash; And the lightning strikes the highest mountain. – Quintus Horatius Flaccus (65 BC – 8 BC)

I have always related to this quote and I find it interesting that quotes from the old are so accurate with the modern times…

I feel like the pine, as I am watching the lofty towers of my homeland crash and burn under their own weight and doing. Thus, no matter how lofty you see your country? Even the very top will get hit and effected by things and happenings…

We are all small when we look up and realize that mountain is just a speck upon the surface of our planet. When we stop and contemplate, we are but an ant looking up at that human stomping aimlessly around our home…

I am glad I am the pine and will bend and sway in the wind and hopefully survive even as the winds try to uproot you…
