Bonus quote: The quieter the mind, the more powerful, the
worthier, the deeper, the more telling and more perfect the
prayer is. To the quiet mind all things are possible.

Meister Eckhart (1260-1327)

May God be merciful and bless us.
May his face smile with favor on us.

May your ways be known throughout
the earth, your saving power among
people everywhere.

May the nations praise you, O God.
Yes, may all the nations praise you.

Let the whole world sing for joy,
because you govern the nations with
justice and guide the people of the
whole world.

Psalm 67, 1-4
Holy Bible
New Living Translation
Every time you smile at someone, it is an action
of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.

Mother Teresa of Calcutta (1910-1997)
Great acts are made up of small deeds.

LaoTzu (6th century B.C.)
Founder of Taoism
Whenever there is happiness
Hope you'll be there too,
Wherever there are friendly smiles
Hope they'll smile on you,
Whenever there is sunshine,
Hope it shines especially for you to
make each day
for you as bright as it can be.

Irish blessing
Let us always meet each other with a smile,
for the smile is the beginning of love.

Mother Teresa of Calcutta (1910-1997)
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 and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it. Yet a smile
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
you a smile. Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he
who has no more to give.

Author unknown, but deeply appreciated
Smile. Have you ever noticed how
easily puppies make human friends?
Yet all they do is wag their tails and
fall over.

Walter Anderson
"The Confidence Course" 1997
If you have only one smile in you, give it to the people you love.
Don't be surly at home, then go out in the street and start
grinning 'Good morning' at total strangers.

Maya Angelou (1928-      )
One of America's greatest poets and authors
Every good deed is charity whether you come  to your brother's assistance or just greet him with a smile.

The Prophet Muhammad (570-632)
Founder of Islam
