Beauty Lies in the Eyes of the Beholder

"It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye." -Antoine de Saint-Exupéry The innocence and purity of an underprivileged child’s laughter brings joy and warmth to those who have succumbed their existence. Their glee reminds us and teaches us to be happy with what we have and see how wonderful life actually is. The smile is a universal language recognised all over the world, throughout all cultures. It opens people's hearts and forgoes prejudices, fears and judgements as it allows for a personal approach to an otherwise overwhelming loaded topic.
