On the importance of smiling to other people:

"Rabbi Yochanan said: Better to expose the white of one's teeth (ie smile) to another person, than to provide him with milk to drink.

"It is written (Genesis 49), 'And the whiteness of teeth from milk,' which could be read (homiletically) as 'And exposing the white of one's teeth (is better than milk).'"

(Talmud, Ketuvot 111b)

Have a great day,
