Wednesday's Words & Quippish Quotes: Hugs & Smiles Edition

Did you know that June 11th is "National Hug Day",  and June 15th is "Smile Power Day"? I thought smiles and hugs went nicely together, so they are this week's Wednesday's Words & Quippish Quotes theme -- because who out there couldn't use more smiles and hugs? They say that even forcing yourself to smile throughout the day will make you genuinely happier just by doing so. So, read these quotes, smile, and then go hug someone you love. You'll be happier for it :)  

"Hug O' War" - Shel Silverstein, Where the Sidewalk Ends

"Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened." -- Dr. Seuss
 “Life is short:
Break the Rules.
Forgive quickly.
Kiss slowly.
Love truly.
Laugh uncontrollably.
And never regret anything that makes you smile.” -- Mark Twain
"They invented hugs to let people know you love them, without saying anything." -- Bill Keane
“This is my wish for you: Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, Love to complete your life.” -- Anonymous
 “I don't know where to go. I don't know what comes now." "Don't worry," Will said. "We'll figure something out."  Liesl managed to smile at him. She liked that word: *we*. It sounded warm and open, like a hug.” ― Lauren Oliver, Leisl & Po
