“Never rely on the glory of the morning nor the smiles of your mother-in-law.”
 Japanese Proverb

“Before you put on a frown, make absolutely sure there are no smiles available.”
 Jim Beggs

“Remember even though the outside world might be raining, if you keep on smiling the sun will soon show its face and smile back at you.”
 Anna Lee

“A smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks.”
 Charles Gordy

“Let us make one point, that we meet each other with a smile, when it is difficult to smile. Smile at each other, make time for each other in your family.”
 Mother Teresa of Calcutta

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
