Planting saplings...
An old man was planting a sapling peach tree when a young fellow stopped, and said, "I don't mean to sound brash, but it takes many years for a small tree to bear fruit. Do you really expect to eat the fruit from this tree?" Rather than be offended the old man answered, "Probably not, but I've been eating fruit from trees others have planted all my life."
