The Eye Opener

Saturday, April 16, 2016

Man is the only animal that smiles, and he is the only one that has need of it. Not that God provided more for the animal kingdom than He did for us. But man, through the stupid misuse of his willpower and his other advantages, has brought misfortunes upon himself that would be unendurable but for the healing balm of smiles and a sense of humor. 

No man is completely beaten as long as he can smile, and we know from past experience that we can wade out of most of our messes on the stepping stones of good-humored grins.
