Just Smile...

Life's Smile Theory:
Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
Thats the time you must keep on trying
Smile, whats the use of crying?
Youll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile..

Beauty I have learned from the ugly, charity from the unkind,
and peace from the turmoil of the world.
(Frederick Ward Kates)

Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.
(Franz Kafka)

Beauty has nothing to do with possession.
If possession and beauty must go together,
then we are lost souls.
A beautiful flower is not to be possessed,
it's there to be beheld.
It's there for your pleasure.
(Diana Vreeland)

We are living in a world of beauty,
but few of us open our eyes to see it.
(Lorado Taft)

Have a beautiful week, my special friend:))

(Anais Nin)
