Planting Carobs

Choni Hame’agel, a Talmudic figure, once met an old man planting a carob tree.

“How long will it take to grow?” he asked.

“Seventy years,” the man answered.

“Do you know that you will live another 70 years?” Choni inquired.

“Just as my ancestors planted for me,” replied the man, “so too I plant for my children.”
