The waitress left off the rest of the quote, which is "Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier", but even the shortened version made an impact. I slid the note into my purse, and for the rest of the night did what I could to spread love. It started with leaving the waitress a generous tip. I held the door for the person leaving the building behind me. I smiled at the people on the street. When I was wearing a mask inside buildings I smiled with my eyes. Later that night I passed the note on by sticking it onto a towel dispenser in a public bathroom.
I can only hope I inspired someone to spread love the same way I was inspired.
