Explore, research, discover

Explore, research, discover
Whether you are a scholar or a music lover,
A Christian or still in search of the Way;
Whether you are a priest or lay.

In doing so, apply wit, enthusiasm and smile:
Your merchandise will be the first to clear the store aisle;
Your friendships will grow stronger;
Your health and happiness will abide longer.

If you want a change

Bow_falls_Banff_national_park_(12078824766)
If you want a change,
Begin from yourself.
There is a wide range,
Add up a pinch of wiliness from the shelf.

If you want politeness,
Then why are you rude?
You say, not enough rightness?
How much have you done?… to conclude.

It is pretty simple,
You crop what you sow.
When you smile, you have a dimple,
You reach only when you go.

If you need respect, respect;
If you want love, be generous with it.
You will see people react.
But be hasty, days do fleet.

Souris, ton sourire est si beau!

Johnsons_Lake_Alberta_Canada_Banff_national_park_(16055273314)
Souris, ton sourire est si beau!
Souris et le monde entier te sourira.
Sois sûr, le soleil apparaîtra de nouveau,
Le jour manqué bientôt finira.

Il ne faut pas désespérer ou être triste,
La nuit portera conseil.
Tout passera, sois comme un touriste –
Aujourd’hui une mauvaise maison, demain une autre, sans doute, sera une merveille!

Smile helps

Johnson_lake_Banff_Alberta_Canada_(16442276798)
Smile is what helps cover an extra mile.
Small or big, let it be sincere in all.
Share it with your friend and neighbour in winter frost and summer glare.
Smile and it will shine the way and help remain agile.

Smile

Maligne_Lake,_Jasper_National_Park,_Alberta,_Canada
As often as possible, smile
And let your face be sincere.
Whether you’re delivering a speech or installing a tile,
Smile, let it be full, not mere.

Не бійся, крокуй уперед

Не бійся, хай як лячно, –
Крокуй уперед із любов’ю і вдячно.
Умій посміхаться будь-що.
Із Богом розлучити тебе не може ніщо!

No good deed is too small

No good deed is too small,
Whether it’s picking up a glove,
Holding the door or being gentle on a phone call,
Whether it’s feeding a man or a dove…

Be thankful for a good deed;
Accept gratitude with a gentle, shining smile too.
You are changing the world taking lead:
One good deed at a time, true.
