A Sunshine Smile



What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity.
These are but trifles, to be sure;
but scattered along life's pathway,
the good they do is inconceivable.

Such medicine to the spirit - smiles can heal even when we didn't realize we were in need of healing. Beautiful portrait and quote.

I just imagine all that man experienced in his live - he looks so happy, his face is very expressive!
Personally, I find the first picture better, because the light enhances the happiness in his face, although b&w is actually better for portraits...
