Always be cheerful

If you don’t want to be old before you really ought to be old, be cheerful in thought, word, deed and appearance – most of all in appearance. Maybe you are not happy inside, perhaps gas in your stomach. But you must look happy. I always find half of you garlic-faced. When you eat garlic, it is a smell passed on to all. So when you appear garlic-faced, that too is contagious. It is a divine art to always look cheerful, it is a divine quality. It helps others. When you are garlic-faced, it makes others unhappy.

-“Love Alone Prevails”, Kitty Davy, p239
