Support from Deep Roots

Support from Deep Roots

When the roots are deep, there is no reason to fear the wind.



A strong wind can uproot a tree with shallow roots from the ground. Trees with deep roots, however, have better support.

This proverb is encouraging us to build a strong network of family and friends as a support system. This network, like the deep roots of a tree, would keep us grounded whenever the challenges of life try to put us down.

This proverb can also be interpreted as encouraging us to build a solid foundation for anything we expect to sustain.
