Schopenhauer and Gandhi on bonsai wisdom



All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

    
- Arthur Schopenhauer (1788 - 1860)


First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.

- Mahatma Gandhi (1869 - 1948)

Is it support in your famous naturalistic way in your bonsai?

are you fan of Schopenhauer and Gandi, or were they fortune tellers and referring to you? :D. Well, we all know what Gandhi and Schopenhauer were telling, it was not about bonsai :D. But point taken, its true of many things, especially when they confront people and make them uncomfortable about their own ideas :)
