„Little by little it dawned upon me that this law was not making people drink any less, but it was making hypocrites and law breakers of a great number of people.“

—  Eleanor Roosevelt, My Day

My Day (1935–1962)
Kontextus: Little by little it dawned upon me that this law was not making people drink any less, but it was making hypocrites and law breakers of a great number of people. It seemed to me best to go back to the old situation in which, if a man or woman drank to excess, they were injuring themselves and their immediate family and friends and the act was a violation against their own sense of morality and no violation against the law of the land. (14 July 1939)

„Little deeds of kindness,
Little words of love,
Make our pleasant earth below
Like the heaven above.“

—  Julia Abigail Fletcher Carney, Little Things

"Little Things" (1845) as quoted in Our Woman Workers: Biographical Sketches of Women Eminent in the Universalist Church for Literary, Philanthropic and Christian Work (1881) by E. R. Hanson. These were the final words of the poem in the original publication, but later versions published anonymously by other authors appended various additions to this. It has also often appeared credited to Carney in a variant form:
Little deeds of kindness,
Little words of love,
Help to make earth happy
Like the heaven above.
