According to Lee Mildon
‘A smile is a curve that sets everything straight’
I pondered upon this statement for a moment then decided, it could have not been put more aptly. A mere smile has the capability to dissolve hatred and enmity. It can mean as if to say ‘let bygones be bygones’ or simply ‘let’s have a new start’. It can portray forgiveness, acceptance, gratitude or simply a gesture of love.
So I am justified to say a small smile carries in itself a plethora of emotions.
Some have the belief that you need a reason to smile. To them smiling without a reason is sheer absurdity, maybe a social discourtesy……….. for them only this will suffice
‘A smile confuses an approaching frown’ –Anonymous
People smile for many reasons, some because they are happy, some because it looks beautiful on them, some because its feels good to smile and some simply because its free…..
It is generally said that ‘Love is in the air’ (my elementary chemistry taught me a similar line for oxygen and nitrogen), but let me introduce you to another such ‘love-type’ of gas……….’SMILE’.
This when goes into the air effects all and sundry.
An anonymous poet rightly wrote
Smiling is infectious
You can catch it like the flu,
Someone smiled at me today
And I started smiling today
A great many poets have spent ages characterizing the smile of their beloved. If one likens it to the blooming of a rose then another to the bright shining day and another to the full moon.
People ask me why do you smile so much and quietly reflect
‘The robbed that smiles, steals something from the thief’ -Shakespeare
So I am justified to say that this five letter word is so deep and so vast that I actually made it into an article for iRNustian. Hence Smile so the world can smile back at you……..
