We have a little sister, and she hath no breasts: what shall we do for our sister in the day when she shall be spoken for? If she be a wall, we will build upon her a palace of silver: and if she be a door, we will inclose her with boards of cedar. I am a wall, and my breasts like towers: then was I in his eyes as one that found favour.
Song of Solomon Cant.8:8-10
Every acorn on the ground is just as alive as the 300-year-old oak tree that towers over it.
