Charlie @ Discovering Mandarin
Thursday, 3 September 2009
Although this is an English proverb translated into Mandarin, (sorry). I wanted to publish this one as I think it is a great use of proverbs. I like to use this phrase when thinking in terms of my goals, ambitions and dreams. They might be big dreams and ambitions, but it is the small tiny steps that I take now that put them into motion.
I think it is worth remembering, the biggest things start with the smallest steps. Put them into motion now.
即使再伟岸的大树，也是由小种子成长而来的。 jíshǐ zài wěi àn de dà shù, yě shì yóu xiǎo zhǒngzi chéngzhǎng ér lái de. The mightiest Oaks [trees] grow form small acorns [seeds].
