Chapter 6, Page 21, Book 18

Never neglect the little things.  Never skimp on that extra effort, that additional few minutes, that soft work of praise or thanks, that delivery of the very best that you can do.  It does not matter what others think, it is of prime importance however, what you think about you.  You can never do your best, which should always be your trademark, if you are cutting corners and shirking responsibilities.  You are special.  Act it. Never neglect the little things.

Og Mandino

Little things in life aren’t so little

Little things seem nothing, but they give peace, like those meadow flowers which individually seam odorless but all together perfume the air.

George Bernanos

There are many little things that knock on our door every day and we neglect to see the joy they bring.  Ongoing small moments can mean so much more that one grand display of love.  Simple pleasures throughout the day can be far more gratifying that one amazing weekend.  

The little things in life are what we remember and appreciate when we reflect on days gone by.  It’s not the great things but the small things that are done in a great way that matter.

Every small thing we do creates a big difference.  Don’t neglect the little things.

One neglect makes ten regrets

James Lendall Basford

I like that thought, one neglect makes 10 regrets. That can be so true. Small things do add up around us if we stop and take the time to do them as well as observe them.
