It’s the small things that matter



A mountain is composed of tiny grains of earth. The ocean is made up of tiny drops of water. Even so, life is but an endless series of little details, actions, speeches, and thoughts. And the consequences whether good or bad of even the least of them are far-reaching.
Swami Sivananda
Every time someone wants to convince the world that they are good, they refer to that one act, that grand demonstration of charity and human nobility. When they want to express how much they want something or love someone, they fall back on that single huge event where they were willing to move heaven and earth for their passion.

That single defining act can be a fluke. Even they Devil can do good by accident.

Nobility is achieved every day in the way you handle random events for strangers, for those who have no direct relevance in your life. The door you held open or the seat you offered for a complete stranger; those acts of anonymous charity, is what defines you and your character. Those simple steps you do every day to achieve your dreams, that constant dedication to your ideals that permeates into every step you take, that is what defines your passion.

It’s in those details that we can see the true character of a person. It’s the small things that make big things happen.
