"My Aunt Mary’s rose, an old-fashioned rugosa shrub, has survived for a long time now. In the years since my childhood, our own boys have helped to care for it -- and through its beauty, hardiness, and living memories, it still helps to care for us." -- Douglas Wood

"Your hard work and your help, your weeding and watering and your gentleness and even your smile -- all these things go right into it and help it grow. So in a way, you are in this rosebush. And as it grows and blossoms, some of that beauty grows inside of you."

This reminds me of the Buddhist teachings on interning.
