اضحك تضحك لك الدنيا

As the saying goes:

“اضحك تضحك لك الدنيا، ابكي تبكي لوحدك”

which roughly translates to:
“laugh and the world laughs with you/joins you in your happiness, cry and you cry alone”

I was a very grumpy child, always frowning. My grandma would repeat this saying to me, but she had her own version. 

“اضحك تضحك لك الدنيا، اعبس تعبس لوحدك”
