A surprising observation which gives heart to those who labour on small things in relative obscurity.   Small things can lead to big.  An example might be the tens of thousands of chisel and hammer blows which go into building a cathedral. 

One thing that I have learned is, the wondrous strength that lies in little things, and that the labour carried on in darkness and silence ever brings forth the grandest birth.

May your labours and projects be so blessed.
