http://www.ted.com Ron Gutman reviews a raft of studies about smiling, and reveals some surprising results. Did you know your smile can be a predictor of how long you’ll live — and that a simple smile has a measurable effect on your overall well-being? Prepare to flex a few facial muscles as you learn more about this evolutionarily contagious behavior.

Says commenter mirandasdance:

An wise old man was talking to a boy and said, “There are two wolves always fighting inside me. One is filled with anger, hate, jealousy, shame and lies. The other wolf is filled with love, joy, truth and peace. This battle rages inside of you on inside of you and all men.” The boy thought for a moment and asked, “Which wolf will win?”

The old man answered “The one you feed.”
