Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
Con demasiada frecuencia subestimamos el poder de un toque, una sonrisa, una palabra amable, un oído atento, un cumplido honesto, o el acto más pequeño de cariño, todos los cuales tienen el potencial para cambiar una vida.
— Leo Buscaglia
