Sorrisos de verdade ou mentira / True or false smiles

Gaetano Bellei (1857 – 1922)

"I was glad my father was an eye-smiler. It meant he never gave me a fake smile, because it’s impossible to make your eyes twinkle if you aren’t feeling twinkly yourself. A mouth-smile is different. You can fake a mouth-smile any time you want, simply by moving your lips. I’ve also learned that a real mouth-smile always has an eye-smile to go with it. So watch out, I say, when someone smiles at you, but his eyes stay the same. It’s sure to be a phony.

Roald Dahl, Danny, the Champion of the World
