Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living.
The world owes you nothing. It was here first.
— Mark Twain


The image is of the leaves of the Ginkgo biloba, or maidenhair tree. It is the oldest species of tree that still grows. There are fossils recognisably related to the modern ginkgo dating back 270 million years. So about 268,000,000 years before even the ancestors of us humans :)
