    The Value of a Smile

    It costs nothing, but creates much.
    It encircles those who receive, without impoverishing those who give.
    It happens in a flash and the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
    None are so rich that they can get along without it and none are so poor but are richer for its benefits.
    It creates happiness in the home, fosters good will 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 food to anybody till 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.
    ~Author unknown



    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.


    True love is wanting to give to another person without any thought about
    whos getting the better of the deal.

    Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie's man's only promise

    It's not hard to remember to smile. I love starting the day like that no matter how disheveled I look when I get out of bed. The mirror is okay with that!

    So funny

    Most smiles are started by another smile.

    A smile is something you can’t give away; it always comes back to you.

    If you would like to spoil the day for a grouch, give him a smile.

    I think smiles are the best things in the world and it's true most people do smile back. I think it brightens their day with with that said :

    Be someone else's sunshine, be the reason someone smiles today

    A smile is the shortest distance between two people

    Smile, Forgive, it's the only way to live!

    I think that when you smile it makes your face light up and this makes your aura beautiful.
