The Value of a smile

A smile costs nothing but creates much. It enriches those who receive without impoverishing those who give. It happens in a flash and the memory of it sometimes lasts forever. It creates happiness in the home, fosters goodwill in a business and is the countersign of friends. It is rest to the weary, daylight to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad and nature’s best antidote for trouble. Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed or stolen, for it is something that is no earthly good to anybody until it is given away. None is so rich that they can get along without it and nobody needs a smile as much as those who have none left to give away. - Unknown

If you will force yourself to smile, you'll end up laughing. You will be cheerful because you smiled. Repeated experiments prove that when man assumes the facial expression of a given mental mood – any given mood – then that mental mood itself will follow. - Kenneth Goode

One of the ceaseless wonders of the world is the power of a smile. - Malcom Forbes

Smile, it is the key that fits the lock of everybody's heart. - Anthony D'Angelo

A warm smile is the universal language of kindness. - William Arthur Ward

What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but, scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable. - Joseph Addison

Sometimes just a smile on our face can help to make this world a better place. - Robert Alan
