There is greatness in the smallest of actions, if only we pause to recognize what is easier to overlook. 

The fool praise the oak and belittle the acorn.

Mind the acorn and the oak will stand in its own. 

With naïveté do we inhale without understanding of how to exhale.

A good story is part struggle and part success. A great story is pure struggle.

The smaller one’s view (experience) of the world, the bigger it seems. Similarly, the greater one’s view (experience) of the world, the smaller it seems.

If necessity is the mother of invention, then sustainability is the father of existence.

If there exist the privileged and the underdogs, then also exist the underprivileged and the dogs.

《the real fight》

It is not enough that the underdog fights for the underdog.

Who is not afflicted, who is not oppressed, who is not persecuted -is tasked to support the underdog by assisting their fight for equality by opposing inequality.

For whosoever does not apply their ability, in essence, so gives up their ability. Whosoever has a right, but does nothing to extend and fight for all to have this right, so upholds a wrong.

The privileged condone by overlooking, condemn by standing by. The war of injustice is fueled by disregard, and the fight against injustice begins only when the privileged stand up for -and fight with- the underdog.

So, do not fight for your cause alone. Do not voice only that which concerns you. Do fight the wars that persist, large and small, for one and for all.

Because we are all the privileged, if not in one way, than in another. And we are all the underdog, if not today, then someday.

Small matters, especially, matter.

Beware the puddle on a cloudless day.

An eggshell cracks not of its own doing.

Belief, not rooted in action, is a lie.

Speculation is only as quality as the eyes that will it.

It is in the midst of darkness that light is born.

In the greatest darkness, the smallest light makes the biggest impact.

Darkness is no match for Light; it exists only by cowardice, hiding behind others who dare to face the light.

A dictatorship oppresses with directives commanded, a democracy suppresses with directives concealed.

A small potato only grows into a big potato.

Two wrongs don’t make a right, any more than two hates make a love.

The clearest way to see within is to be without.

There is a time to shine, and a time to let others shine.

The setting of the sun has a silent way of bidding farewell.

And the small root shall overcome even the most stubborn of the big rocks.

A blossom blooms only while the beauty begets and will whither wherever the wind wills.

Though a deed may be small, the action is grand.

The prize not shared is lost to all.

Pride is a request for appreciation, asked in the form of a sentence.
