Worry often gives a small thing a big shadow.
Don’t make yourself so big. You aren’t that small.
Not for the mighty world. O Lord, tonight, Nations and kingdoms in their fearful might – Let me be glad the kettle gently sings, Let me be grateful for little things.
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius – and a lot of courage – to move in the opposite direction.
An ant may well destroy a whole dam.
Nothing is little to him that feels it with great sensibility.
It isn’t the mountain ahead that wears you out – it’s the grain of sand in your shoe.
Little and often make much.
If what appears little be universally despised, nothing greater can be attained; for all that is great was at first little, and rose to its present bulk by gradual accessions and accumulated labours.
A person is a person, no matter how small.
