We Must Plant Them At Once

“When an administrator in Africa rode out to inspect land that had been devastated in a storm, he came to a place where giant cedars had been uprooted and destroyed. He said to his official in charge, ‘You will have to plant some cedars here.’  The official replied, ‘It takes 2,000 years to grow cedars of the size these were. They don’t even bear cones until they’re 50 years old.’

‘Then,’ said the administrator, ‘we must plant them at once.’

And this is the admonition to you.”  Spencer W. Kimball, “The Time to Labor is Now”, October 1975.
