The acorn does not know that it will become a sapling. The sapling does not remember when it was an acorn and only dimly senses that it will become a mighty oak. The oak recalls fondly when it was a sapling, loves being a mighty oak, and joyfully creates new acorns.

An oak tree is just a small nut that perseveres against the taunts of doubt and fear.
