It Costs Nothing but is Invaluable

It costs nothing, but creates much.
It enriches those who receive, without impoverishing those who give.
It happens in a flash and the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
None are so rich that they can get along without it, and none so poor but are richer for its benefits.
It creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in business, and is the countersign of friends.
It is a rest for the weary, daylight for the discouraged, sunshine for the oppressed, and Nature’s best antidote for trouble.
It cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, stolen, or coerced for it has no earthly good to anybody until it is given away.
And if you should meet someone who is too tired to give you one, can you please leave one of yours?
For no one needs it as much as those who have none to give.
Smile!
