The Value of a Smile    

It costs nothing but creates much.

It enriches those who receive it without diminishing the wealth of those who give it.

It happens in a flash and the memory of it can last a lifetime.

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

It creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in a business, and is the countersign of friends.

It is rest to the weary, daylight to the discouraged, and nature's best antidote to trouble.

Yet is cannot be brought, begged, borrowed, or stolen for it is of no earthly good to anybody until it is given away.

And if it ever happens that some person would be too tired to give you a smile, why not leave one of your own?

For nobody needs a smile so much as one who has none to give.
