I found this on a hard disk backup from many years ago. I must have felt it was important enough to save.
It costs nothing, but creates much.
It enriches those who receive,
without impoverishing those who give.
It happens in a flash and the memory of it
sometimes lasts forever.
It creates happiness in the home, fosters
good will in business and is the
countersign of friends.
It is rest to the weary, daylight to the
discouraged, Sunshine to the sad and
nature's best antidote for trouble.
Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed
or stolen for it is something that is no
earthly good to anybody until it is given away!
