Probably every one well use the phrase “Family Tree” considering every member is a leaf. It’s a thought provoking fact to find identification between tree leaves and human beings. People breaths exactly like leaves, when they grow old and reach out the end of their course they die (fall) from the tree, both pass seasons. And then, you can find unstable person who acts like lame leaf goes right and left in a windy day. Both thrives in proper soil and sear in a waste. Their Karma could be alike as well; both are branching off in different directions, sometimes for the good other for the bad. For humans, the ones that work hard make it to the top and the other who make the wrong choices stay at the bottom, but the leaves stay stationary in their position, the tree it’s on grows. And there are many more colloquialisms about leaf and humans that inspires us in many ways to take a leaf out of a leaf’s life.
