The Value of a Smile

poème anglais

samedi 21 novembre 2009

It costs nothing, but it creates much

It enriches those who receive without empoverishing those who give.

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

None are so rich they can get along without it, and none so poor but are richer for its benefits.

It creates happiness in the home, fosters goodwill 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 good to anyone until it is given away.

And if in the course of the day some of your friends should be too tired to give you a smile, why don’t you give them one of yours ?

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

SMILE !
