Rabbi – You’re not smiling!!
“If someone is too tired to give you a smile, leave one of your own, because no one needs a smile as much as those who have none to give.”
“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 F. Buscaglia
“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.”
Thich Nhat Than, Vietnamese Monk
Smile, even if the smile is forced. Smile again, and this smile will multiply and become real. Smile yet again, and you’ll be lifted into laughter. Laughter is contagious, and you and everyone around you will be beautiful and happy.
