    I’ve always liked this quote. We never know what the ripple effects will be from the seeds we sew.

    To see potential in something is a gift of faith and foresight.

    This is a great quote. But I also believe we can see the apples in one seed if we look hard enough. The seed was created by god therefore of course God knows how many apples it will produce, but the real question is are we ready to know, or can we only see the seed?

    Take care Alan

      Where are the publishers of quotable quotes? This is great they should better add this!

      Yes I can expect so many apples in one seed but I don’t know the exact quantity before the seed is planted or even while the tree is growing. But yes I might be able to count them all from the tree if I outlive the tree.

      If we know the harvest in a seed wouldn’t life be boring? Would there be a use for faith?
