Change your opinions, keep to your principles; change your leaves, keep intact your roots.
If you truly get in touch with a piece of carrot, you get in touch with the soil, the rain, the sunshine.

If we chew every morsel of our food in that way we become grateful and when you are grateful, you are happy.
Thich Nhat Hanh

John F. Kennedy

Consider a tree for a moment. As beautiful as trees are to look at, we don't see what goes on underground - as they grow roots. Trees must develop deep roots in order to grow strong and produce their beauty. But we don't see the roots. We just see and enjoy the beauty. In much the same way, what goes on inside of us is like the roots of a tree.
The roots of all goodness lie in the soil of appreciation for goodness.
The earth is rocky and full of roots; it's clay, and it seems doomed and polluted, but you dig little holes for the ugly shriveled bulbs, throw in a handful of poppy seeds, and cover it all over, and you know you'll never see it again - it's death and clay and shrivel, and your hands are nicked from the rocks, your nails black with soil.
Storms make trees take deeper roots.

'Be faithful to your roots' is the liberal version of 'Stay in your ghetto.'
My most memorable meal is every Thanksgiving. I love the food: the turkey and stuffing; the sweet potatoes and rice, which come from my mother's Southern heritage; the mashed potatoes, which come from my wife's Midwestern roots; the Campbell's green-bean casserole; and of course, pumpkin pie.
Everybody pulls for David, nobody roots for Goliath.
C. S. Lewis
