“Little Things Matter”

Little things matter. Never underestimate even the simplest acts of kindness and love. The author of  Dilbert ,  Scott Adams, says:

Remember, there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness.
Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.


Another one of my favorite quotations comes from the highly-celebrated poet, William Wordsworth:

The best portion of a good man’s life,
His little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love.


There are beautiful random acts of kindness that we can do everyday. All it takes is to have some consideration for others, and to look for opportunities to make the day a little happier and brighter for someone else.

I am not sure whether you do recall this lovely little poem by Mrs. J. A. Carney that you would have probably learned as a child. Though these words have the innocence of childhood in them, they are, nevertheless, timeless and very profound.


Little drops of water,
Little grains of sand,
Make the mighty ocean,
And the beauteous land.

Little deeds of kindness,
Little words of love,
Make our earth an Eden,
Like the heaven above.

And the little moments,
Humble though they be,
Make the mighty ages,
Of Eternity.
