While it may seem small, the ripple effects of small things is extraordinary.

Matt Bevin

The Ripple Effect

Ripple effect:  a spreading effect or series of consequences caused by a single action or event.

It never ceases to amaze me how much everything matters. To say that all things are interconnected is an understatement. Really, everything you do, say, and think is part of the whole and, in some way, affects not only yourself, but everyone and everything else.

Remember there's no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end. 

Scott Adams

Consider your life as a series of ripples. One simple choice can change the course of your life. This is why becoming conscious and aware of our thoughts, words and actions is so important. Everything we do has a ripple affect on other people.

Every single action we make has a consequence, like a ripple in a pond that may directly or indirectly hurt or heal someone.

Every great decision creates ripples--like a huge boulder dropped in a lake. The ripples merge, rebound off the banks in unforseeable ways. The heavier the decision, the larger the waves, the more uncertain the consequences.

So true the ripple effect. Sobering when we consider our actions.

I read a whole book on that and what you say is true and amazing - one little act of kindness or meanness. Sandie

I have never thought of the ripple like Ben Aaronovitch stated so clearly. The bigger the bolder the more unpredictable the ripples. Something to think about.

I agree, there is no such thing as a small act of kindness.
We were just watching the news, hearing countless (Las Vegas) survivors' stories of being shielded, picked up and carried to safety by strangers. Brings tears to one's eyes.
