This one made me groan because it nailed me, but good:

"Until you take action, what you want holds no power."

I guess it's been long enough since I posted this on another thread...so I'll tell it again. It's true.

I knew some folks who had a dog with an incredible name; they felt obliged to give him this name after watching the Westminster Dog Show where all the dogs had Champion Lineage Names.

They named their dog:

Sir Bernard O. Wellington Cedric Frederic Franklin Edwards, Sr, /Grand Bahamian Statesman of Yale.

They called him "Ed".

The racehorse was running as fast as it could, but it was only 3MPH.

The cause was because it was hobbled.

A woman had a set of twins. She named the first child Amal.  She and her husband were so poor, they could barely support themselves. They named the second child Juan. After a long talk, they decided it would give the children a chance at a better life if they were to adopt them out.

Several years later, the couple who had adopted Juan sent a picture to his birth mother. She was thrilled to see how well and fine her child looked. But she moaned to her husband, "I wish I could have a photograph of Amal...."

He scratched his head and said, "I don't know why. You've seen Juan, you've seen Amal."

The Friars were needing money to update the abbey in which they lived.

One of them said that since they had good gardening soil, they should grow flowers and open up a Florist's Shop.

Well, their competitors across town got quite upset. Customers felt so good about supporting the Friars, the other shop lost a great deal of their regular business.

The competition called them and begged them to close their shop, but the Friars would not do so, no matter how many times they were asked.

Finally, the competition got in touch with the biggest, strongest, meanest guy in town, Hugh McTaggart, to go over to the abbey. He arrived in the shop and beat up the Friars and tore up everything in the shop.

The Friars closed down their shop after that....which only goes to show that Hugh, and only Hugh, could prevent Florist Friars.

I noticed on the first page of this thread it mentioned alliterations! This is one of those you probably have to practice a little before you can let it roll out of your mouth without making a few slight mistakes:

"I slit a sheet, a sheet I slit, upon the slitted sheet I sit."
