Why You Should Smile More Often; 60 Quotes to Motivate You To Smile

The World Smile Day is around the corner. Oh, yes, you heard right. The World Smile Day is celebrated annually on the first Friday of October. The fact that there is a World Smile Day shows why you shouldn’t underestimate the power of a smile. 

The World Smile Day? You see, in 1963, Harvey Ross Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Central Massachusetts created the ‘smiley face’ that we all love to use. Today, the smiley face is the most popular symbol of good cheer and goodwill in the world.

 

Harvey Ball started World Smile Day in 1999. He did so to give a chance to everybody on the planet to smile and share kindness at least one day in a year. Harvey Ball died in 2001.

 

After his death, the Harvey Ball World Smile Foundation was formed in honor of his memory and name. The foundation is now the official sponsor of the Annual World Smile Day.

 

So, this year, World Smile Day is on 6th October. I urge you to smile and share kindness on that day.

 

Below are quotes to motivate you to smile more for your own good, for the good of others, and for the good of the planet.
