A smile

A smile

A smile costs 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 and mighty
that he can 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.
