Noële est la plus claire fête,
C’est pourquoi il ne faut pas faire la tête;
Regarde, c’est un très beau jour –
N’es pas ému(e), mieux souris toujours!

Smile is better than crying;
Courage is better than fearful air;
The truth is better than lying;
Wit is better than a tough head;
Being calm is better than being mad.
Therefore, give up what’s worse, choose what’s better instead.
Hope is better than despair.
* Latin for “whatsoever things are true” (Phil. 4:8).

Для енергії на день потрібна зарядка ранкова;
Для душевних сил – молитва – християнський захист і підтримка виняткова;
Для настрою ж гарного, – посмішка, тому старайся:
Хай складно як, віруй, будь спок, посміхайся.

Use your smile often, buddy,
When the streets are lit with light or when they are muddy;
When you win or when you fall;
When you are at work or in a mall.
Doing so will help with others,
And it will help with your own stuff too.
It will encourage your sisters and brothers
To smile and all of you will break through.

You are the salt
Of the earth, friend;
You are the light of the world.
Avoid despair or finding fault.
Be courageous and witty till the end.
God looks after you when you run and when you sleep curled.
To help in every good deed, use smile.
Be happy and healthy, stay agile.

Have you tried churching, friend?
It is like hiking, but you need to attend
A Church in the countryside or in town.
For this, you may need to walk or to take a ride
And to change to smile your frown.
The key is: that’s a spiritual adventure
To help you succeed in every good venture
And to get adequate rest;
To help focus on the important things
And to pass any good test.

A new day is a new life,
New beginning, new chance
For you, your worker, student, husband or wife,
Therefore, smile and join the dance!

Smile helps build a house,
Work and study each day;
Whether you wear a khaki uniform or a teacher’s blouse,
Use it to brighten your day.

You were several years younger
And I was so naive.
We met at the fishmonger’s,
You were about to leave.
I asked how the selection was that day.
You smiled and said what you liked.
You explained the best cooking way,
It was trout or pike.
You gave me your email
In case I forgot how.
Since then we often met; we often pray like in a fairy tale,
We’ve been married for twelve years now.

Keep a positive outlook in all.
I do not say, “be fluffy”.
Just do not lose a good disposition of your spirit to avoid a fall.
Practise this when all is good and when projects are stuffy.
