Thought for the Week: Smiling is Powerful

Posted Sep 12 2008 6:50pm

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” -- Leo Buscaglia (American guru, tireless advocate of the power of love, 1924-1998)

“Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.” -- Mother Teresa of Calcutta (Albanian born Indian Missionary and Founder of the Order of the Missionaries of Charity. Nobel Prize for Peace in 1979. 1910-1997)

“There are hundreds of languages in the world, but a smile speaks them all.” -- Unknown

“What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.” -- Joseph Addison (English Essayist, Poet, Dramatist and Statesman, 1672-1719)

“Nobody needs a smile so much as the one who has none to give. So get used to smiling heart-warming smiles, and you will spread sunshine in a sometimes dreary world.” -- Lawrence G. Lovasik (Slovak Priest, b.1913)
