This quote by Charles Henrickson Brower found in Charles Jones’ Life is Tremendous, Tyndale House, 1979, p15, is a reminder that we must treat new and promising ideas with care if we want them to progress to their full bloom.

Others have said that we use less muscles on our face to smile than to frown, and I think that encourages me to smile more often, especially when we want to relax through a hectic time of day. Whatever the reason, a smile makes friends or at least makes them wonder! Try it and see for yourself. —Grandpa Wal
