The Value of a smile

A Smile costs nothing, but creates much.

It enriches those who receive without impoverishing those who give.

It happens in a flash and the memory of it lasts forever.

None are so rich that they can get along without it, and none are so poor, but are richer for a smile.

Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed or stolen, for it is something that is ne earthly good to anybody, ‘til it is given away.

And if it ever happens that some people should be too tired to give you a smile, why not leave one of yours?

For nobody needs a smile so much as those who have none left to give.
