 If I knew the box where the smiles are kept; 
No matter how large the key
Or strong the bolt, I would try so hard
’Twould open, I know, for me;
Then over the land and the sea broadcast,
I’d scatter the smiles to play,
That the children’s faces might hold them fast
For many and many a day.

If I knew a box that was large enough
To hold all the frowns I meet,
I would like to gather everyone,
From nursery, school and street;
Then folding and holding, I’d pack them in
And turning the monster key,
I’d hire a giant to drop the box
To the depths of the deep, deep sea. – Maud Wyman

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 or mighty that he can get along without it, none is so poor but that he can be made rich by it.
A smile creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in business, is the countersign of friendship.
It brings rest to the weary, cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad, and it is natures best antidote for trouble.
Yet it 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 a smile.          
Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.- Courtesy: Mr. M.V. Menon


You have not lost your smile at all, its right under your nose. You just forgot it was there. - Anonymous

Smiling is infectious,
you catch it like the flu,
When someone smiled at me today,
I started smiling too.

I passed around the corner
and someone saw my grin.
When he smiled I realized
Id passed it on to him.

I thought about that smile,
then I realized its worth.
A single smile, just like mine
could travel round the earth.

So, if you feel a smile begin,
dont leave it undetected.
Lets start an epidemic quick,
and get the world infected!
