The ears of someone whose eyes are examining the tip of a fine hair

“The ears of someone whose eyes are examining the tip of a fine hair do not hear a peal of thunder, the eyes of someone whose ears are tuning a musical instrument do not see an enormous mountain. Thus when there is a fixation of attention on small things, then there is forgetfulness of great things.”
