Never underestimate the importance of small things

Great things are done by a series of small things brought together- Vincent Van Gogh

And how the thought came. The thought being, of never underestimating the ‘small things’ in life. The realization that after all atoms are the building blocks of LIFE. How ‘effort’, no matter how ‘small’ it is, will lead to ‘success’. The realization came to me, through a series of thoughts. First, after having read, ‘The God of Small things’

To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.” –  Arundhati Roy
