Thought For the Day: Time Etches Our Smiles and Tears On Our Faces

“Time engraves our faces with all the tears we have not shed.” – Natalie Clifford Barney, poet, playwright, and novelist (31 Oct 1876-1972)

Given her unusual life, it’s not surprising that she forgets that life also engraves it’s laughs and smiles in the lines on our face as well.  It’s best that we do not also forget this.  Nat King Cole popularized a song about the power of smiling.  It’s a thought well worth keeping in mind as we face the travails and the pleasantries we live through. Don’t you agree?
