It costs nothing, but delights many,

It enriches those who receive it, without making those who give it, the poorer.

It takes but a moment but its memory may last forever.

And if some of your friends forget to give you a smile,

Make sure you offer one of your own to them.

For none needs a smile more than he who has not one to give.


No one is so rich that he can do without it.

And no one is so poor that he cannot be enriched through it.

It creates happiness in the home, fosters goodwill in the office,

And is the guarantee and sign of friendship.

It brings rest to the weary, cheer to the discouraged,

Sunshine to the sad and is the best remedy for any trouble.

Though it cannot be sold, loaned, borrowed or stolen - it is of no value to anyone unless it is given away.
