None is so rich
That he can get along without It,
And none so poor but are richer
For its benefits. It creates happiness
In the home, fastens goodwill in a business,
And is the countersign of friends.
It is rest to the weary,
Daylight 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
To anybody till it is given away.
If someone is too tired to give you a smile,
Leave one of yours.
For nobody needs a smile
As those who have none to give.
