    A smile cost 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 can get along without it,
    and none is so poor but that he can 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 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

    dear IL member,:rotfl

    I have complied these from various books . I hope it may help to smile for a while

    Smile is the cheapest cosmetic you can wear.

    All of you know that Smiles is the longest word in the dictionary, since it contains the word ‘mile’

    The smile increases your face value.

    The smile gives you positive energy.

    The smile is divine.
    Here are the glimpses of great men on laughter.

    Laughter is by definition healthy. Doris Lessing

    The most wasted of all days is one without laughter. e e cummings (1894 - 1962)

    If you don't learn to laugh at trouble, you won't have anything to laugh at when you're old.
    Edgar Watson Howe (1853 - 1937)

    Man is distinguished from all other creatures by the faculty of laughter. Joseph Addison (1672 - 1719), The Spectator, September 26, 1712

    He deserves Paradise who makes his companions laugh. -The holy Koran

    Always laugh when you can. It is the cheapest medicine. Lord Byron (1788 - 1824)

    The human race has one really effective weapon, and that is laughter. Mark Twain (1835 - 1910)

    Laughter is inner jogging. Norman Cousins (1912 - 1990)

    You can't deny laughter; when it comes, it plops down in your favourite chair and stays as long as it wants. Stephen King (1947 - ), "Hearts in Atlantis"

    Laughter is the closest distance between two people. Victor Borge (1909)
    Finally -If you smile the whole world smiles with you. If you cry nobody cries with you.
    So– Keep smiling. When you meet people greet them with a smile.
    You smile at the people you deal with every day and see the difference in their attitude towards you within a week.Initially, they may be shocked, but you don’t stop !:-D
