הוה מקבל את כל האדם בסבר פנים יפות

הוה מקבל - One should receive את כל האדם - every person בסבר פנים יפות - with a pleasant countenance.

There's סבר - which means paying attention,

then there's פנים - looking at the person and conveying the attention,

and finally יפות -to listen attentively with a pleasant expression.

I expand on this idea here.

May we be blessed today to pay proper attention to others.
