A smile costs nothing, but gives much.
It enriches those who receive,
without making poorer those who give.
It takes but a moment,
but the memory of  it sometimes lasts forever.
None is so rich or mighty
 that he can get along without it.
A smile creates happiness in the home,
fosters good will in business,
and is the countersign of friendship.

It brings rest to the weary,
cheer to the discouraged,
sunshine to the sad,
and it is natures best antidote for trouble.
Yet it cannot be bought, begged,
borrowed, or stolen,
for it is something that is of no value
to anyone until it is given away.
Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
Give them one of yours,
as none needs a smile so much
as he who has no more to give.

Harm others in the forenoon,

Harm seeks thee in afternoon. -Thirukkural

There are good ships, and there are wood ships, and ships that sail the sea.  But the best ships, are friendships, and may they always be.
