十 年 树 木, 百 年 树 人

It takes ten years to grow a tree, but a hundred years to bring up a generation of good men.

解释 ( paraphrase )
十年时间才能培植出树木,百年时间才能培养出人才。
这条谚语告诉我们:培养人才是一项十分艰巨的任务,需要做长期而耐心的工作。

This proverb means that cultivating talent is hard work which needs long and patient effort.

十,百:这里泛指多,不一定是实数。
            "十" and "百" here indicate a large number, not necessarily a definite number.

树:这里作动词,是培植,培育的意思。
      Here as a verb, it means to plant or to ultivate.

造句 ( example )
所谓“十年树木,百年树人”,教育不是朝夕之功,而是一项周期性很长的伟大的事业。
