“If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito.”
By Dalai Lama XIV.
I also often hear the slightly different version, it was like this; “If you think you’re too small to make an impact, try sleeping in a room with a mosquito.” - either way they had the same point: creature no matter how small had the audacity to make an impact. Like, that mosquito i guess, so tiny but the buzzing is grinding your ears. Haha.
Similarly, one simple gesture can make a difference. Maybe a smile to a stranger that hold the door for you? Or a thumb up for a driver in a car that stop and let you cross/walk in the street. Or hug a person that look tired. It somehow boost them up.
Well. There’s so many debate over what is the actual meaning of this Dalai Lama’s quote. And this is how i interpret that.
Oh it’s friday! Happy weekend! :)
