The soil of the garden is nothing but broken pieces of the past. Nothing grows on the clean jagged rocks, it needs the brokenness of the soil to take root. All that you are building today is built on your past failures and and your successes. Never underestimate the wisdom of your past for giving you a foundation for your future where your roots can grow deep. ” – David Scott
