A smile recures the wounding of a frown.
      - William Shakespeare

A villain with a smiling cheek.
      - William Shakespeare

I can smile, and murther while I smile.
      - William Shakespeare

Loose now and then a scattered smile, and that I will live upon.
      - William Shakespeare

Those happy smilets that played on her ripe lip seemed not to know what guests were in her eyes; which parted thence as pearls from diamonds dropped.
      - William Shakespeare

Nobly he yokes
  A smiling with a sigh, as if the sigh
    Was that it was for not being such a smile;
      The smile mocking the sigh that it would fly
        From so divine a temple to commix
          With winds that sailors rail at.
      - William Shakespeare, Cymbeline
         (Arviragus at IV, ii)

My tables--meet it is I set it down
  That one may smile, and smile, and be a villain.
    At least I am sure it may be so in Denmark.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at I, v)

Seldom he smiles, and smiles in such a sort
  As if he mocked himself and scorned his spirit
    That could be moved to smile at anything.
      - William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
         (Caesar at I, ii)

You have seen
  Sunshine and rain at once--her smiles and tears
    Were like, a better way: those happy smilets
      That played on her ripe lip seemed not to know
        What guests were in her eyes, which parted thence
          As pearls from diamonds dropped.
      - William Shakespeare, King Lear
         (Gentleman at IV, iii)

There is a snake in thy smile, my dear,
  And bitter poison within thy tear.
      - Percy Bysshe Shelley, Beatrice Cenci

The smile that flickers on baby's lips when he sleeps--does anybody know where it was born? Yes, there is a rumor that a young pale beam of a crescent moon touched the edge of a vanishing autumn cloud, and there the smile was first born in the dream of a dew-washed morning.
      - Rabindranath Tagore, Gitanjali (61)

'Tis easy enough to be pleasant,
  When life flows along like a song;
    But the man worth while is the one who will smile
      When everything does dead wrong;
        For the test of the heart is trouble,
          And it always comes with the years,
            But the smile that is worth the praise of earth
              Is the smile that comes through tears.
                . . . .
                  But the virtue that conquers passion,
                    And the sorrow that hides in a smile--
                      It is these that are worth the homage of earth,
                        For we find them but once in a while.
      - Ella Wheeler Wilcox, Worth While

The Italians say that a beautiful woman by her smiles draws tears from our purse.
      - Nathaniel Parker Willis

Smiles are smiles only when the heart pulls the wire.
      - Theodore Winthrop

I feel in every smile a chain.
      - Dr. John Wolcot (Wolcott or Woolcott) (used pseudonym Peter Pindar),

And she hath smiles to earth unknown--
  Smiles that with motion of their own
    Do spread, and sink, and rise.
      - William Wordsworth,
        I met Louisa in the Shade (st. 2),
        (afterwards cancelled by him, not found in complete edition of poems)

A tender smile, our sorrows' only balm.
      - Edward Young, Love of Fame
         (satire V, l. 108)

A man I knew who lived upon a smile,
  And well it fed him; he look'd plump and fair,
    While rankest venom foam'd through every vein.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night VIII, l. 336)
