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.

Fourth of July on the Lake

The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

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.
