  •  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
  •  Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love…Smile at each other, smile at your wife, smile at your husband, smile at your children, smile at each other — it doesn’t matter who it is — and that will help you to grow up in greater love for each other….Let us make one point, that we meet each other with a smile, when it is difficult to smile. Smile at each other, make time for each other in your family. —quotes from Mother Teresa
