The Most Famous Smile


The Smile

There was a huge crowd, but I managed to get a photograph of the most famous smile in the world.  But the lesson I learned that day occurred when I looked back into the crowd.  There was not a smile on any face. It is a serious business looking at the perfect smile.

“I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection.  ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles until death.”

Leonardo da Vinci
