Valuing the "little" picture

This is a very empowering way of thinking, actually:

If we just worry about the big picture, we are powerless. So my secret is to start right away doing whatever little work I can do. I try to give joy to one person in the morning, and remove the suffering of one person in the afternoon. If you and your friends do not despise the small work, a million people will remove a lot of suffering.

-- Sister Chan Khong (Vietnamese Nun and Peace Activist)

  2. I like this thought very much. Nice to think the small things count.
