Today's Quote

Happiness is not so much in giving or sharing.
We make a living by what we get,
but we make a life by what we give.

The Language of a Smile

There's a special language spoken
By everyone on earth
No matter what their country,
No matter what their birth;
It transcends all time and space.
It's known alike by old and young
And found in every place.
Those who speak it often
Always find that it's worthwhile
Everybody understants it-
It's the language of a smile!
