"That I may show the whole world that we ought to value little joys more than great ones; the
night-gown more than the dress-coat; that Plutus' heaps are worth less than his handfuls, and not great,
but little good-haps, can make us happy. You perceive my drift is, that man may become a little
tailor-bird which, not amid the crashing boughs of the storm-tossed, roaring, immeasurable tree of life,
but upon one of its leaves, sews itself a nest together, and there lies snug."-Jean Paul Frederic Richter.
