All things start small. All without exception.
But the most phenomenal, monumental, and mighty...
...start unremarkably, inconsiderably, and inconspicuously.
Living in quarrel is full of stress. It requires a concept.
Strategies, plans, procedures, thorough organization—
And gigantic resources: It wastes energy, time, heartbeats:
In contrast, living peacefully in coexistence just requires:
A more reasonable thought.
A smile, if in passing.
And a smidgeon of respect.
Giving a thing a quick thought in a moment of quietude...
...is sufficient to start a revolution.
So do not waste your energy. Just think about it—
And let it happen.—
