The robbed that smiles, steals something
from the thief.
~William Shakespeare, Othello
A smile costs nothing, but gives much.
None is so rich or mighty that he cannot get along without a smile,
and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it.
Yet a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen,
for it is something that is of no value to anyone
until it is given away.
A smile enriches those who receive it
without making poorer those who give it.
It only takes 14 muscles to smile and takes but a moment,
but the memory of a smile can sometimes last forever in one's heart.
We are drawn to people who smile.
Frowns push people away.
A smile draws people in.
Smiling is a great way to make
ourselves stand out while helping our
body to function better.
Smiling helps improve our health,
our stress level, and
Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
Give them one of yours,
as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.
Smiling is infectious,
You can catch it like the flu.
Someone smiled at me today,
And I started smiling too.
Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of
love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.
Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been.
~Mark Twain, Following the Equator
