The grass is always greener

I once knew someone who grew grass in their office.

That’s not a euphemism. I mean actual grass. In a planter. They sell them. It’s quite the thing.

I never asked about it, but a mutual friend/colleague told me that it was meant as a reminder. With apologies for my inexact memory, it was along the lines that just as grass will grow if you take good seed and provide it with good soil and light and water… people will grow if you give them what they need as well.
