The Value of a Smile

While I was going through my humor library the other day I came across this book of "Quotatons to Cheer You up When the World is Getting You Down" by Allen Klein. I was feeling kind of down and I needed to change how I was feeling. So I went to my humor library and sought out something to adjust my attitude and lift my spirits. The following quotation made all the difference in the world for me at that very moment. Plus the picture of my niece, Madison gave me reasons to smile!!

"A smile costs nothing but gives much. It enriches those who rceive without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes last forever. None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it and none is so poor that he cannot 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 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. "
