How easy it is for one benevolent being to diffuse pleasure around him; and how truly is a kind heart a fountain of gladness, making everything in its vicinity to freshen into smiles!

Washington Irving (1783-1859)

No, but he was babbling about bubbling effervescence.

Smirnoff? A joyful drink.

Whatever it was, some benevolent being was obviously picking up the tab.

Well, I guess alcohol is one explanation. Buddha would have probably seen it a loving-kindness, or opening your heart, both of which can be achieved even without alcohol.

To Floyed:

So very true. In my experience,the people who I most like to be around are those who radiate kindness and humility. I think these people have a deep sense gratitude and reverence for everything, and are the most interesting and intelligent people I know. Somehow being in their presence--or anything that is in their presence, is seen with respect and a sense of awe. I feel significant and illuminated in their presence, and little chimes of joy begin tinkling inside my heart.

That's true but (too) cute quote.

Funny. Applause

Judging from his smile it must have been a strong relax(ant)... Nah, not curare... ;-)

I disagree with you DarkMoon. I don't think that Washington Irving's quote was "cute". I think it was sincere.
