“If you take the best seed of the tallest tree in the forest and plant it in a little flower pot to let it grow…it grows into but a small tree. Even though it looks like the bigger tree, it will always stay a bonsai tree, because it wasn’t given enough space to grow. And I say poor people are the bonsai people. There’s nothing wrong with the seeds. Simply, society never gave them the space and the base on which to grow.”
– Muhammad Yunus


About Miriam

I am a traveller. Not in the fast sense. I am travelling on foot, as a pilgrim. And I love writing and playing music. Since I found back to singing and writing while walking the Way of St. James in Spain, I started mingling the two. Means I am walking with my little guitalele and playing whenever the situation seems right for it :-)
