Creation smiles in various beauty gay While day to night, and night succeeds day
Give me the plumpVenetian, fat, and lusty, That meets me soft and supple, smiles upon me As if a cup of full wine leaped to kiss me.Dario Fo

O harmony! thou tenderest nurse of pain,If that thy note's sweet magic e'er can healGriefs which the patient spirit oft may feel,Oh! let me listen to thy songs again;Till memory her fairest tints shall bring;Hope wake with brighter eye, and listening seemWith smiles to think on some delightful dream.william lisle bowles
Oft, in the stilly night, Ere Slumber's chain has bound me, Fond Memory brings the light Of other days around me; The smiles, the tears, Of boyhood's years, The words of love then spoken; The eyes that shone, Now dimm'd and gone, The cheerful hearts now broken!thomas moore
When thou dost shine, darkness looks white and fair, Forms turn to musick, clouds to smiles and air; Rain gently spends his honey-drops, and pours Balm on the cleft earth, milk on grass and flowers. Bright pledge of peace and sun-shine! the sure tye Of thy Lord's hand, the object of his eye. When I behold thee, though my light be dim, Distant, and low, I can in thine see Him Who looks upon thee from his glorious throne, And mindes the covenant 'twixt all and One.Henry Vaughan
She hath smiles to earth unknown— smiles that with motion of their own Do spread, and sink, and rise.william wordsworth
A Creature not too bright or good For human nature's daily food; For transient sorrows, simple wiles, Praise, blame, love, kisses, tears and smiles.william wordsworth
Her very frowns are fairer far Than smiles of other maidens are.hartley coleridge
Do you not remember me, Nicodemus, who believed in naught but the laws and decrees and was in continual subjection to observances?

If he descended from heaven today the great warrior who beat the money-traders you would shout your "crucifige!" and nail him to the cross which he himself bore. But he mildly smiles upon your hate: "The truth will prevail, even if the bearer falls; the faith will live, for I give my life ... and stand tall at the cross for all warriors of the world."baldur von schirach
See truth, love, and mercy in triumph descending, And nature all glowing in Eden's first bloom! On the cold cheek of death smiles and roses are blending, And beauty immortal awakes from the tomb.
A face with gladness overspread! Soft smiles, by human kindness bred!william wordsworth
I ask Thee for a thankful love, Through constant watching wise, To meet the glad with joyful smiles, And to wipe the weeping eyes, And a heart at leisure from itself, To soothe and sympathize.
Be thou the rainbow to the storms of life! The evening beam that smiles the clouds away And tints to-morrow with prophetic ray!lord byron
Did we save the world, then? [Batman: We Did] And all that rubbish about me being faster than Flash? You knew this was gonna happen. [Briefly pauses and smiles] Good one, mate.
Before you put on a frown, make absolutely sure that there are no smiles around.Jim Beggs

When, O crowned Jesus ; when, O loving Saviour; when, O patient and just Judge when wilt Thou come forth from Thy hiding, and change tears to smiles , and groans to joys ? When shall that choral song burst forth, sweeping through the air , and circling about Thy throne, which shall proclaim the redemption of the world to the Lord God ?
Be thou the rainbow to the storms of life! The evening beam that smiles the clouds away, And tints to-morrow with prophetic ray!lord byron
It is, indeed, at home that every man must be known by those who would make a just estimate of either his virtue or felicity; for smiles and embroidery are like occasional, and the mind is often dressed for show in painted honor, and fictitious benevolence.
Utilitarianism had found [in Samuel smiles’ Self-Help] its portrait gallery of heroes, inscribed with a vigorous exhortation to all men to strive in their image; this philistine romanticism established the bourgeois hero-prototype the penniless office-boy who works his way to economic fortune and this wins his way into the mercantile plutocracy.john carroll
Quips and Cranks and wanton Wiles, Nods and Becks and wreathèd smiles.john milton
