Smile mona lisa
“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.”

—Thích Nhất Hạnh

Leonardo da Vinci’s portrait of the enigmatic “Mona Lisa,” on display at the Musée du Louvre in Paris, is generally regarded as the most famous painting in the world. Da Vinci's work was painted between 1503 and 1519 and yet seems more enchanting, engaging and popular than ever.

The ambiguity of her expression—her smile—has captured the imagination of other artists, authors and songwriters for centuries.

We hope that you enjoy her timeless, serene confidence. And if she inspires you to study what scholars have examined, writers have penned and singers have expressed, we hope you will come away with the most important gift she can give—a smile.

Smile. Pass It On!
