 GREAT OAKS FROM LITTLE ACORNS GROW

Compared to the big oak tree the acorn is a very small seed. But the seed when matured grows into huge tree in course of time. If we study the history of many of the big business in the world, we can see that they all grew up from small and humble beginnings. The proverb has another meaning too, many of the richest men in the world had a humble beginning in life. With hard and sincere efforts, they earned the posi­tion and status.
