The 12/27/12 ‘Joy Jar’

30 Dec
Everyone likes to think it is the big things that make one happy. But, for many happy people, it is the small things strung together like pearls that bring a smile to one’s face. No, many of these small things are not the same as giving a speech at the UN. Instead of bringing peace to nations, small things that make you grateful bring peace to your soul. Moi just loves going into Bartell Drugs and finding Lindt chocolate is on sale. Wow, what a feeling. Today’s deposit in the ‘Joy Jar’ is about the small things.

It has long been an axiom of mine that the little things are infinitely the most important.” Arthur Conan Doyle, The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes

“Little drops of water,
Little grains of sand,
Make the mighty ocean
and the pleasant land.

Thus the little minutes,
Humble though they be,
Make the mighty ages
Of eternity.”
Julia Abigail Fletcher Carney

For the person for whom small things do not exist, the great is not great.
Jose Ortega y Gasset

“Sometimes when I consider what tremendous consequences come from little things. I am tempted to think there are no little things.”
Bruce Barton

There are some things that you can fulfill with money, but at the end of the day these are not the things that make you happy. It is the small things that make life good.
Sebastian Vettel
