May your turkey plump. 
May your potatoes and gravy 
Have nary a lump. 
May your yams be delicious 
And your pies take the prize. 
And may your Thanksgiving dinner 
Stay off your thighs."

"Never lose an opportunity 
Of seeing anything that is beautiful. 
For beauty is God's handwriting - 
A wayside sacrament. 
Welcome it in every fair face, 
In every fair sky, 
In every fair flower, 
And thank God for it 
As a cup of blessing."

— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Of which all men have some."
