Out of Small Beginnings

“Thus out of small beginnings greater things have been produced by His hand that made all things of nothing, and gives being to all things that are; and as one small candle may light a thousand, so the light here kindled hath shone unto many., yea in some sort to our whole nation; let the glorious name of Jehova have all the praise”
― William Bradford, Of Plymouth Plantation
