  • Little drops of water, little grains of sand,
    Make the mighty ocean and the pleasant land.
    So the little minutes, humble though they be,
    Make the mighty ages of eternity.
  • Little deeds of kindness, little words of love,
    Help to make earth happy like the heaven above.
    • Little Things (1845).
