Words of wisdom

While moving a load of things of my mothers to get some cables out of the way, I came across two pieces of paper, each with these words on:

The Value of a Smile
It costs nothing, but creates much.
It enriches those who receive, without impoverishing those who give.
It happens in a flash and the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
None are so rich they cannot get along without it, and none so poor but are richer for its benefits.
It creates happiness in the home, fosters goodwill in business, and is the countersign of friends.
It is rest to the weary, delight to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad and Nature’s best antidote for trouble.
Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed or stolen, for it is something that is no earthly good until it is given away.
And if in the last minute rush of Christmas buying some of our salespeople should be too tired to give you a smile, may we ask you to leave one of yours?
For nobody needs a smile so much as those who have none left to give.


........seems to me like good advice
