What's the use of worrying?
  It never was worth while, so
    Pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag,
      And smile, smile, smile.
      - George Asaf (pseudonym of George Henry Powell),
        Smile, Smile, Smile

Struck blind with beauty! shot with a woman's smile.
      - Francis Beaumont and John Fletcher

It is the color which love wears, and cheerfulness, and joy--these three. It is the light in the window of the face by which the heart signifies to father, husband, or friend that it is at home and waiting.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Something of a person's character may be discovered by observing when and how he smiles. Some people never smile; they merely grin.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

What smiles! They were the effluence of fine intellect, of true courage; they lit up her marked lineaments, her thin face, her sunken gray eye, like reflections from the aspect of an angel.
      - Charlotte Bronte (used pseudonym Currer Bell)

He smiled as men smile when they will not speak, because of something bitter in the thought.
      - Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Many a withering thought lies hid, not lost, in smiles that least befit those who wear them most.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

She turned to him and smiled, but in that sort which makes not others smile.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

Smiles form the channels of a future tear.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Childe Harold (canto II, st. 97)

Cervantes smiled Spain's chivalry away;
  A single laugh demolished the right arm
    Of his own country;--seldom since that day
      Has Spain had heroes.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Don Juan (canto XIII, st. 11)

But owned that smile, if oft observed and near,
  Waned in its mirth, and wither'd to a sneer.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Lara (canto I, st. 17, l. 11)

From thy own smile I snatched the snake.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),

If a man smiles all the time, he's probably selling something that doesn't work.
      - George Carlin

The smiler with the knife under his cloak.
      - Geoffrey Chaucer

Her very frowns are fairer far
  Than smiles of other maidens are.
      - Hartley Coleridge, She is not Fair

What sun is there within us that shoots his rays with so sudden a vigor? To see the soul flash in the face at this rate one would think would convert an atheist. By the way, we may observe that smiles are much more becoming than frowns. This seems a natural encouragement to good-humor; as much as to say, if people have a mind to be handsome, they must not be peevish and untoward.
      - Jeremy Collier

In came Mrs. Fezziwig, one vast substantial smile.
      - Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol
         (stave 2)

A smile is a curve that sets everything straight.
      - Phyllis Diller

There are few faces that can afford to smile: a smile is sometimes bewitching, in general vapid, often a contortion.
      - Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield

Their smiles and censures are to me the same.
      - John Dryden

The smile of her I love is like the dawn
  Whose touch makes Menmon sing:
    O see where wide the golden sunlight flows--
      The barren desert blossoms as the rose!
      - Richard Watson Gilder,
        The Smile of Her I Love

A woman has two smiles that an angel might envy--the smile that accepts a lover afore words are uttered, and the smile that lights on the first-born baby.
      - Thomas Chandler Haliburton (used pseudonym Sam Slick)

What a sight there is in that "smile!" it changes like a chameleon. There is a vacant smile, a cold smile, a smile of hate, a satiric smile, an affected smile; but, above all, a smile of love.
      - Thomas Chandler Haliburton (used pseudonym Sam Slick)

Smiles are the language of love.
      - A.W. Hare and J.C. Hare

The smile that was childlike and bland.
      - Bret Harte (Francis Bret Harte)
