the wisdom of the snail —Slow Food’s symbol

the wisdom of the snail —Slow Food’s symbol
The snail was chosen because it moves slowly and calmly eats its way through life. The snail not only teaches us the virtue of slowness, but its small, unassuming size reminds us that even one individual, at a grassroots level can yield tremendous power.
