When I see someone smile, I know immediately that he or she is dwelling in awareness.
This half-smile, how many artists have labored to bring it to the lips of countless statues
and paintings? I am sure the same smile must have been on the faces of the sculptors
and painters as they worked. Can you imagine an angry painter giving birth to such a smile?
Mona Lisa's smile is light, just a hint of a smile. Yet even a smile like that is enough to relax
all the muscles in our face, to banish all worries and fatigue. A tiny bud of a smile on our lips
nourishes awareness and calms us miraculously. It returns us to the peace we thought we had lost.

- Thich Nhat Hahn
