Don't you worry, Dannye. Instead of making me lose my smile you made it grow. It's a large compliment to me for someone of your level and power to see my homepage, read it, and like my quotation enough to steal it.

It wasn't quite stealing because you said where you got it and didn't try to take credit. I saw it written in a corner of a white board at school a few years ago. I've loved it ever since. I agree that a person's natural smile is what's important. I happen to be able to smile decently for pictures usually too, but I mostly love the saying because friends and guys have said that my smile drew them to me. The smile I have during conversations, laughter, etc.

Thank you, Dannye. My quotation made an impact of some sort, and got you thinking, so I'm happy.

Well, the recently added writeups have evoked feelings of sadness and almost pity from me. No one falls in love with just your smile. If they do, then yes, they have problems. This quotation is meant to remind people to stay positive, but also comments on how something like a smile can pull you into a person. If you're spending time with someone, talking, etc. and they're smiling and enjoying themself, it's more than likely that you will be too. I think that those of you that are down on "loving someone's smile" should sit back, relax, and understand that people like happy people.
