Think for a moment, if you will, on the people you may see walking down a crowded city street. As you pass by each person, imagine the different uses of body language, how people walk, talk, and most importantly, notice the people who are smiling.

Smiling makes people happy. In fact, I would say that the very pursuit of happiness begins with a smile.
