Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us every day.
  —  Sally Koch
[For some reason this quoted reminded me of Matthew 7:5
“…First cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.”
I recognize the quote and Bible verse are more or less opposite and the verse is being taken out of context, but that’s what the quote reminded me of:  people always looking for their big chance to make a difference, when there are boundless small chances in our lives all the time.  Sometimes it can be as simple as a smile to a stranger…
Which (strangely enough) brought to mind another almost related quote about things adding up:
A billion here, a billion there, and pretty soon you’re talking about real money.
  —  Senator Everett Dirksen
See how my mind wanders sometimes?  —  KMAB]

If the stars should appear one night in a thousand years, how would men believe and adore; and preserve for many generations the remembrance of the city of God which had been shown!  But every night come out these envoys of beauty, and light the universe with their admonishing smile.

What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity.  These are but trifles, to be sure; but scattered along life’s pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.
