Planting seeds

A city dweller who for the first time saw a farmer plant seeds, thought, "That man must be insane. Why is he taking good grain and burying it in the ground?" Only much later, after he saw the grain grow did he understand the reason for burying the seeds in the earth. When we see things happen that appear to be destructive we lack the foresight that would show us that these are seeds from which good will later emerge.

(Maggid of Dubno)
