Joseph Addison: His Quote About Trifles and Smiles

A Modern Version of Joseph Addison's Quote About Life, Trifles, Flowers, Sunshine and Humanity -- written by Susan Baldwin

"Sunshine helps flowers to blossom and grow into beautiful specimens for all to behold. Smiles are rays of benevolent sunshine that lift up the wings of human beings. Are smiles mere trifles? No, the truth is that when smiles are freely given, the uplifting thoughts they offer to others who are traveling along life's arduous roads cannot be underestimated." - Susan Baldwin

Here is Joseph Addison's quote:

"What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable." - Joseph Addison (1672-1719)
