The endurance of pine

I read in A Guide to Nature in Winter that pines are one of the oldest kinds of trees, and that they were around before the dinosaurs. The book said that the reason is because they have evolved to endure such hardships as climate change and forest fires. I hope that like the pine, I can remain strong through whatever tempest rages around me.
