So I was sitting at Starbucks today, drinking my hot chocolate. My sister had just gone outside to answer her phone and I was sitting there playing sudoku on my phone. And older gent walked by, kinda doubled back and was looking at me. Since I was sitting in the middle of three seats I thought maybe he was going to ask if one of the seats next to me was free. Instead he told me that it was nice to see so many beautiful women around. I thanked him and gave him a smile. Then he told me this:
"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 cannot get along without it and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it. Yet a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away."
He told me to keep on smiling and wandered off to have his coffee.
How sweet is that?
