Drop by drop, a river is made

"I am done with great things and big things, great
institutions and big success, and I am for those tiny,
invisible, molecular moral forces that work from
individual to individual by creeping through the
crannies of the world like so many rootlets, or like
the capillary oozing of water, yet which, if you give
them time, will rend the hardest monuments of man's

-William James (1899)

Hmm, there are many quotes I learned from my room mate but the only one I remember now is quick quick catch monkey, which is not the same...

I have no clue. but that's what makes the saying so much fun.
