I think a tree that bends realizes that it will have greater success if it accepts the greater forces that govern it's reality and makes the best of that situation. There's a great deal to be said about personal humility, wisdom and teachability. A tree that does not break has the opportunity to continue it's growth and development. In a sense, it lives to fight another day
This code phrase for Evoke means that if the idea is innovative and strong and can be implemented in risky situation can go a long way and become sustainable solution. The morale of the quote is simple do it deeply and you would not have to care for the timely obstacles.

What the quote is saying is that when something bad happens you can always find a way to help fix it. For Evoke this means when ever the world has a crisis there is always a way to help fix it and "bend the tree back into shape".

Someone or something that can adapt to change will never fall down.

I think the quote means is that a person who can easily '' go with the flow'' or can be at ease when disaster strikes can never fall down, or give up that easily.

I think the quote means nothing can break you because of your strong personality.

It means if u are prepared and ready for anything,then u won't be broken, in a tight place, or helpless like others.

I think this phrase means that someone may try to knock you down, but if you bend a little you may not fall down.

The old Suk**a proverb: "The wind does not break a tree that can bend." means that if you are very uptight, or strict it will be easy to bend/break you. But if you are flexibly and easygoing when the wind comes you won't break as easy.

I think the phrase means that if you are going through hard times you have to adjust or "bend".
I think this means that no matter how hard you try some thing are just meant to be, and you can't change that.

That if a person is determined they are not breakable.

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently.
