Cowart's Common Room
an old fashioned rhyme

I read this old rhyme today in the newspaper and thought how true it is, so I thought that I would share it with you.

It's easy enough to be pleasant,
When life goes along with a song,
But the man that's worthwhile,
Is the man who can smile,
When everything around him goes wrong.

Don't you feel better when a stranger shares a smile with you?

Fennie's Avatar Having watched Morecambe and Wise again last night I can just hear that being said by Eric in the middle of some disaster and slapping little Ern's cheeks at the end of it.

Westerwitch's Avatar I grin at everyone and get some wonderful smiles back - as well as some suspicious looks.

At the kids old school there was a sign that said - if you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours.

Faith's Avatar In my grandma's old album that her friends wrote in:

Smile and the world smiles with you,
Weep and you weep alone,
For this cruel old earth,
Wants all of our mirth,
But has sorrows enough of it's own.

Faith's Avatar PS I particularly like smiling at old gentlemen because it makes them feel young at heart!

Camilla's Avatar I tend to smile at everyone, sadly not everyone smiles back, probably think I am eccentric, yep, I AM.!
