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.”

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