These quotes are all from Patch Adams. If you haven’t seen the movie about his life which stars Robin Williams, please rent it. He is a joy revolutionary.
“The most revolutionary act you can commit in today’s society is to be publicly happy.”
“If compassion and generosity were the measure of success that money and power are now,
how would your life change?
“Do you dare to be universally friendly to end violence?”
“If being publicly joyful, even silly, were beneficial for our society, would your participate?”
“Sometimes joy is the source of your smile but sometimes a smile is the source of your joy.”
Thich Nhat Han
I found that on Yahoo’s Livin’ in the Moment by David Romanelli who said,”Smile- everything is evolving just as it should.”
This is what I tell people, Choose to smile, Remember to smile no matter what is going on in your life or around you. All IS well inspite of what appears to be going on. If you will smile, your life and all of our lives WILL go in a better direction. My goal is for the world to be smiling, friendly, loving, kind, forgiving,less greedy,sharing more freely and happy. This is achievable if we all take responsiblity for our thoughts which produce our actions. Think about children how they are naturally.
We were children…We need to keep our eyes open and learn from them..instead of thinking we know it all. Yes, we have much to teach them, but they have much to teach us as well. We also need to treat them with more respect.
Please spread the word today. Spread the smiles. Tell someone there is a Smile Revolution on. Make their day.
“Of all the liars in the world, sometimes the worst are your own fears.”
Rudyard Kipling(1865-1936) English poet and writer
