The root of all evil is money. Thats the first thing that comes to mind when I see the word ‘root’. But the word ‘root’ means so much in so many different ways. It can symolize family and life. When I sit and think about the word ‘root’ its evident to me that family, friends, music, money, and God are deep in my roots. Yes, it seems contradictory to have money and God in the same sentence and breath, but money solves a lot of issues, in a good sense. I am the type of person who is always thinking about his future and wondering how I am going to achieve something. So make no mistak that even though I am on 20 years old (21 in 13 days), I have already started putting myself in position to make sure my future family is in good standing and wont have to worry about having food on the table.

about a boar who snuffles for truffles and sneaks his nose beneath the tree, and lives for the scent that pays his master’s rent and feasts when he can on the sweet fungal meat of the root.

I wish I knew all the answers to the problems to our world troubles. Then maybe we could get down to the root of the evils in this world.

“see here, the root of the problem is you. without your choice to leave, everyone would have been alright. this family tree might have stayed together, but you twisted it and shriveled it, drawing up poison from the soil and killing the entire beautiful tree. now our brother hates you, our father cheated on mom, and no one wants to live within two thousand miles of each other. it’s all your fault.”
or so I’ve been told. that’s what my sister said to me two years ago. that I was the root of the problem.

Everything has it’s root. A thought, stems from something else, that stems from another, that stems from another. When you have an issue, you need to find the root, so you can get rid of it. But you have to remember, some roots grow as weeds, others blossom as flowers.

roots deeply in the ground
never revealing what is above it
keeping us grounded
but eventually coming up
and showing us that everything
comes to an end
but always growing down

the root of the root, the bud of the bud.
we all stem from somewhere.
And what we take up it cleanses our soul
or it condemns us to wither to rot and to perish

the root of the plant goes deep into the ground anchoring it in place against the winds of time. It nourishes it with water gathered deep and stores food for times of scarcity. The roots a of a plant, deep beneath the surface, are the very essence of what it is we see .

roots the strong hold of the forest giants. the under belly of the under ground world. with out them there would be no structure to the earth around us.

Roots are what makes your life what it is. loose your roots and loose your sense of wonder. Roots can be a family or a group of friends, but never loose them. Keep true to your roots and you will remain true to yourself.

My roots are Chinese roots that came allllll the way from China and I’m proud of having such a long history and actually have a whole book back there where they recorded the entire family history! :) Since we are on the topic, we were also the ones that founded a very valuable and expensive and nutritious roots called the Ginseng. Lol.

vegetables and trees. Underground. Putting down roots. Staying in one place. Not moveable. Sends a message of permanence. The deepest cause of something; its core. The name of a character in a book I’ve been trying to finish for years. Something a baby does when it’s hungry. Somehow a beginning word; a staple in biological behaviouriour

The root of a tree is the source of it’s life. It allows the tree to absorb nutrients and water without this the tree would die and thus is the source of life for the tree
could also relate to the beginning of a problem

The root of all evil. Getting to the root of the problem. Root vegetables. Root around. Putting down roots. Spreading your roots.

root. something that is meant to hold steady, hold fast. root. a piece of past, maybe? for a person anyways. where theyre from, their background. a source of identity. root. digs deep and secure. something that stays and doesnt change except to become more significant. root.

yo no se que es root pero lo puedo buscar en el diccionario, como es ingles pues ni idea pero eso no es un problema porque estoy probando esta herramienta para mis alumnos en verano, lo que ya tiene merito esto no tiene acentos asi que no se puede hacer nada a derechas pero todo este tiempo tiene un minuto por dios que acabe ya que no

I can’t believe i trippe dover it. I didn’t see that tree root sticking u out of hte ground, so that was probably how i managed to get my foot caught underneath it and topple to the ground. “Stupid root.” i grumbled as i picked myself u and brushed myself off. The forest floor was covered with these things.

i am in the process of trying to find my roots again. who i am deep down… what i am suppose to do… so on… i feel further away from know this than the east is from the west.

going back to your roots
it can be an adventure
maybe a mystery
you can discover many things
where you came from
who you are
going back to your roots

i think it is something with a tree? is it? yes it is a small ‘tak’ coming out a bigger one. it’s also a bible verse about the birth of the king. in jesajah.

The roots of his bones plunged into the dark tumble of the earth and he felt himself go limp with complete peace. His mind dissolved through the cracks in the cobblestones of his head, dripping into the foliage growing hungry from within him.

roots can hold down a tree from blowing away
or can make you trip and fall on your head
they are big and thick
and provide the plant nutrients and water
they store many things
roots are the foundation for life
The root of all evil is not what people think it is. In fact, it is a small piece of chocolate that sits on a table in the middle of a desert somewhere outside of Cairo, in Egypt. It never melts, of course, because it’s the root of all evil.

This makes me think of Winnie The Pooh for some reason. I have no clue why. Oh and root beer floats.

I tugged at it and it came out easily. “Damn plant,” I muttered. “Didn’t have to be so resistant, did ya?”
She stared at it for a long moment, then at me. “What do you do with it?”
I grinned. “Eat it!” And threw it at her. She caught it without batting an eyelash and held it at a distance, still appraising the sweet spud in her hands.

of a tree.. is like a new beginning of something that will be great. it’s inspiring that something so insignificant, like a root rising from the sidewalk that people may trip over, will grow to be something so beautiful, big and meaningful.

my grandmother used to tell me about her childhood; the first car, the streets being light up by men wit torches, the first time she saw a tv, and color tv. these images had huge impact on me.

My roots are strange…they flow into soil I love, nurturing and soft…but also into soil that is hard and unforgiving. I can work at it…till and sow to make growth easier…or I can sit and do nothing and let the earth dry up and die.
By Daisy Fields on 08.02.2011
the trees roots had ruined the pavement. I stared at the big lump in the side walk and cautiously walked over it. Soon another passerby walked near the root and the sidewalk but tripped over it. Was it wrong to sit there and watch him fall, or had I learned a lesson, far too deep than I had realized. He got back up to his feet and walked away.
