It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer – Albert Einstein

I definitely want to be like a cactus – having an ability to live life meaningfully even in the midst of ‘unfavourable’ conditions!

“Most cacti live in habitats subject to at least some drought. Many live in extremely dry environments, even being found in one of the driest places on earth. Cacti show many adaptations to conserve water. Most species of cacti have lost true leaves, retaining only spines, which are highly modified leaves. As well as defending against herbivores, spines help prevent water loss by reducing air flow close to the cactus and providing some shade.” Wikipedia
