Sunday Dinner: Small Delights

“The great underestimates the small,
the leader underestimates the led,
the beautiful underestimates the ugly,
and you underestimate who?”
Alan Maiccon
“Smallness is subversive,
because smallness can creep into smaller places
and wreak transformation
at the most vulnerable, cellular level.
In a time when largeness is threatening to topple us,
I wish to remember and praise the beauty of smallness,
in order to banish the Goliath of loneliness.”
Sarah Ruhl
“Great man
is the one who is aware
of his smallness in this universe!
Greatness starts first of all
with accepting the reality.”
Mehmet Murat ildan
“All space is relative.
There is no such thing as size.
The telescope and the microscope
have produced a deadly leveling
of great and small, far and near.
The only little thing is sin,
the only great thing is fear!”
David H. Keller
“Express gratitude
for the greatness of small things.”
Richie Norton
“Just because our brains are limited in size,
does not mean our minds need be.”
Jeffrey Fry
“You may think I’m small,
but I have a universe
inside my mind.”
Yoko Ono

“To see things in the seed,
that is genius.”
