The Value of a Smile at Christmas

Here’s a little something I wanted to share, from the great book by Dale Carnegie, “How To Win Friends and Influence People”:

“The Value of a Smile at Christmas”

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 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 a business, and is the countersign of friends.
It is rest to the weary, daylight to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad, and Nature’s best antidote for trouble.

Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,or stolen, for it is something that is no earthly good to anybody till it is given away.
And, if in the last-minute rush of Christmas buying, some of our sales-people should be too tired to give you a smile, may we ask you to leave one of yours?
For nobody needs a smile so much as those who have none left to give!
