„Life is made up of sobs, sniffles, and smiles, with sniffles predominating.“

—  O. Henry, Context: There was clearly nothing to do but flop down on the shabby little couch and howl. So Della did it. Which instigates the moral reflection that life is made up of sobs, sniffles, and smiles, with sniffles predominating. "The Gift of the Magi"

„You'll find that life is still worthwhile, if you just smile.“

—  Charlie Chaplin British comic actor and filmmaker 1889 - 1977
Context: Smile though your heart is aching Smile even though its breaking When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by If you smile with your fear and sorrow Smile and maybe tomorrow You'll find that life is still worthwhile If you just Light up your face with gladness Hide every trace of sadness Although a tear may be ever so near That's the time you must keep on trying Smile, what's the use of crying? You'll find that life is still worthwhile.
