Odysseas Elytis – “You Will Come To Learn A Great Deal If You Study The Insignificant In Depth.”

We miss a great deal because we often ignore the insignificant,

A single stone seen but left unturned may hide the significant,

underneath it, may just be the final piece of the puzzle,

many have looked upon everyday challenges without realizing that they’re solutions to their problems;

wouldnt we be better off in life if we took the time to examine the depth of all,

regardless of the insignificant shapes and sizes they come?

We would because according to Sages;

“The best things come in small packages”

So, Odysseas Elytis wasn’t wrong when he said;

“Know that, as in life, there is much that many have looked upon but few have seen because, as my father told me and his father told him, you will come to learn a great deal if you study the insignificant in depth.” –
