There are smiles and smiles to go in life

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - - Letters -

Sir — Kath­leen Cor­ri­gan’s let­ter (Stay happy, Sun­day In­de­pen­dent, Novem­ber 25) was en­ter­tain­ing. If more peo­ple would fol­low that ex­am­ple and smile more, it would make a more pleas­ant world.

It brings to mind some old say­ings such as: “Laugh and the world laughs with you, weep, and you weep alone.” “Some­thing that is no good un­til it’s given away? An­swer: a smile.”

An old Chi­nese proverb — “Man with­out smil­ing face should not open shop.”

Fi­nally, my own makie-up­pie — “There is not VAT on a smile”. Leo Gorm­ley, Dun­dalk, Co, Louth
