“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.”
— Robert Brault
It’s hard to imagine anyone looking at a grain of rice 10,000 years ago and saying, “Hey, I’ll bet we can feed half the world if we just domesticate this little seed.”
Yet today, an average person eats 300-400 pounds of rice each year. Multiply that by the 7 billion people or so on this planet and it quickly becomes very hard to fathom the impact this little grain has had on the world.
Perhaps, it’s hard to recognize how valuable rice is because a single grain is so small and seemingly insignificant.
Maybe kindness is that way, too.
