    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

    Those are pretty handy tools.
    The brain is a wonderful organ; it starts working the moment you get up in the morning, and does not stop until you get to the office. (Robert Frost)

    Re: This'll put a smile on your face

    Three lawyers and three engineers were travelling by train to a conference. At the station, each lawyer bought a ticket whereas the engineers bought only one ticket between them.
    "How are you going to travel on a single ticket?" asked a lawyer.
    "Wait and watch," answered one of the engineers.
    When they boarded the train, the lawyers took their seats, but the three engineers crammed into a toilet and closed the door behind them. Shortly after the train started, the ticket collector arrived. He knocked on the toilet door and asked, "Ticket please." The door opened just a crack and a single arm emerged with a ticket in hand. The ticket collector took it and moved on. Seeing this, the lawyers decided to the same thing on the return trip. So when they got to the station, they bought only one ticket.
    To their astonishment, the engineers didn't buy any. "How are you going to travel without a ticket?" asked one of the perplexed lawyers.
    "Wait and watch," answered an engineer.
    In the train, the three engineers crammed into a toilet and the three lawyers
    into another nearby. Soon after the train started, one of the engineers got out
    of the toilet and walked to one where the lawyers were hiding.
    He knocked on the door and said, "Ticket, please."

    A foreign tourist hired a guide to take him around Delhi and Agra. At the Red Fort at Delhi, he admired the architecture and asked how many years it took to build.
    "Twenty years," replied the guide.
    "You Indians are a lazy lot," the tourist said. "In my country, this could have been built in five."
    At Agra he admired the Taj's beauty and asked how many years it took to build.
    "Only ten years," said the guide.
    The tourist retorted: "You Indians are slow! We can construct such buildings in two-and-a-half."
    In this fashion the tourist claimed that every building he admired could have been built in his country in quarter the time. Finally, when they reached the Qutab Minar, and the tourist asked what it was, the guide replied: "I don't know. It wasn't there yesterday evening."
