“DELUSION, n. The father of a most respectable family, comprising Enthusiasm, Affection, Self-denial, Faith, Hope, Charity and many other goodly sons and daughters.
All hail, Delusion! Were it not for thee The world turned topsy-turvy we should see; For Vice, respectable with cleanly fancies, Would fly abandoned Virtue's gross advances. --Mumfrey Mappel”
“Success is a Journey: so, don't forget to pack your COURAGE: to stand up, after facing obstacle after obstacle. HOPE: for a better day, after coming face to face with the storm. and FAITH: to keep those dreams alive, when all you see, is the mist and the haze...”
“I'm going to ask you out one day to be my girlfriend or maybe something more, I don't know when but when I do, it will be something special and hopefully by then I'll become the man I need to be for you.”
“Whatever your goal in life might be, don't take no for an answer. When you take no for an answer you won't get what you want to achieve. So, DON'T GIVE UP or lose HOPE! Even when it seems like you're going up against the odds. It's time to open your eyes, and notice.You are almost there, DON'T let YOUR pain and YOUR struggles, blur your vision. Keep that dream alive, for it is yours and only you can achieve it and bring it to life.”
“Blend equal parts of Faith and Hope mixed well with Charity; Stir in Good Will and Sweet Content and Precious Memory. Add Kindness, Helpfulness and Joy; of Gratitude don't spare; Then drop by drop Love's Essence sweet, and Praises freely share. And don't forget such spices rare as Laughter, Smiles and Fun, Taste often for the best results, ('Tis sweet to mince upon). Now add a Thankful Heart and then, the recipe's complete, Your "Merry Christmas" all will like … so try the season's treat”
