Washington Irving

A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in its vicinity freshen into smiles.

Richard Branson

Spend more time smiling than frowning and more time praising than criticizing.

A smile costs 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 cannot get along without it and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it. Yet a smile 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.

H. Jackson Brown Jr.

Today, give a stranger one of your smiles. It might be the only sunshine he sees all day.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox

‘Tis easy enough to be pleasant, when life flows along like a song; but the man worthwhile is the one who will smile when everything goes dead wrong.

John Paul II

How often the shadows of loneliness engulfing a soul can be blown away by the light and warmth of a smile, or of a pleasant word.

Leonardo da Vinci

I love those who can smile in trouble…

Anthony J. D’Angelo

Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.

William Arthur Ward

A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.

Thérèse of Lisieux

A word or a smile is often enough to put fresh life in a despondent soul.

Mother Teresa

We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.

Thomas Paine

The real man smiles in trouble, gathers strength from distress, and grows brave by reflection.

Henri Nouwen

Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone’s face? Did I say words of healing? Did I let go of my anger and resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love? These are the real questions. I must trust that the little bit of love that I sow now will bear many fruits, here in this world and the life to come.

Leo Buscaglia

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.
