A smile cost nothing, but gives much.
A smile cost nothing, but gives much :
It enriches those who receive,
without making poorer those who give.
It takes but a moment,
but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it,
and none is so poor but that he can be made rich by it.
A smile creates happiness in the home,
fosters good will in business,
and is the countersign of friendship.
It brings rest to the weary,
cheer to the discouraged,
sunshine to the sad,
and is nature’s best antidote for trouble.
Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen,
for it is something that is of no value to anyone
until it is given away.
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.
Quotes on Smiles :
Those who smile rather than rage are always the stronger.
– Japanese Proverb
If a child smiles, if an adult smiles, that is very important. If in our daily lives we can smile, if we can be peaceful and happy, not only we, but everyone will profit from it. If we really know how to live, what better way to start the day than with a smile? Our smile affirms our awareness and determination to live in peace and joy. The source of a true smile is an awakened mind.
– Thich Nhat Hanh

a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.

to grow up in greater love for each other.

accepts a lover before words are uttered, and the smile that
lights on the first-born babe, and assures it of a mother’s love.

our smile. And this precious gift costs nothing.

There are two kinds of smiles, genuine and artificial. Very
often we put on smiles, but the heart does not smile, only the
lips and face take part in it. This is not a real smile. When
the heart is filled with joy, it is reflected on the face as a
smile. It is a natural outflow of joy.
– Papa Ramdas
