About this deal

Living in an age of advertisement, we are perpetually disillusioned. The perfect life is spread before us every day, but it changes and withers at a touch. J. B. Priestley We complain and complain, but we have lived and seen the blossom -apple, pear, cherry, plum, almond blossom – in the sun; and the best among us cannot pretend they deserve – or could contrive – anything better.”

John Boynton Priestley, OM (; 13 September 1894 – 14 August 1984), known by his pen name J.B. Priestley, was an English novelist, playwright, scriptwriter, social commentator and broadcaster. A smile, therefore, may be said to be the first stage in the development of a laugh,” he writes, then reverses course, musing that perhaps the smile is instead the remnant of laughter. Scientists have shown that smiles are far easier to recognise than other expressions. What they don’t know is why

If we openly declare what is wrong with us, what is our deepest need, then perhaps the death and despair will by degrees disappear. J. B. Priestley If you're looking for a daily dose of inspiration or searching for the perfect quote to share with friends and family, RareQuote has you covered.

In plain words: now that Britain has told the world that she has the H-Bomb she should announce as early as possible that she has done with it, that she proposes to reject in all circumstances nuclear warfare. J. B. Priestley I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning.” There are various medical conditions that can disable us from smiling. A common one is facial paralysis caused by a stroke. Rarer is Moebius syndrome, a congenital facial paralysis caused by missing or stunted cranial nerves, where you can’t smile, frown or move your eyes from side to side. “You essentially have a mask on your face,” says Roland Bienvenu, 67, who has Moebius syndrome. Without being able to smile, others “can get an incorrect impression of you”, he says. “You can almost read their thoughts. They wonder: ‘Is something wrong with him? Has he had an accident?’ They question your intellectual ability, think maybe he’s got some intellectual disability since he’s got this blank look on his face.” If someone can’t read your facial expressions, then it’s difficult to be socially accepted

We cannot get grace from gadgets. In the Bakelite house of the future, the dishes may not break, but the heart can. Even a man with ten shower baths may find life flat, stale and unprofitable.” It’s one of the most fundamental things that humans do. Smile. Newborns can manage it spontaneously, as a reflex, and this is sometimes misinterpreted by new parents as a reaction to their presence, although it’s not until six to eight weeks of age that babies smile in a social way. That new parents optimistically interpret the first reflex smiles reflects the complexity of smiling: there is the physical act and then the interpretation society gives to it – the smile and what the smile means.The real lost souls don’t wear their hair long and play guitars. They have crew cuts and trained minds, sign on for research in biological warfare, and don’t give their parents a moment’s worry.”
