“Fer Comely lips, speak words o' kindness, Fer lovely eyes, seek out th' good in people, Fer a slim figure, share yer grub wi' th' hungry, Fer Beautiful hair, let a sprog run their fingers through it once a day, Fer poise, walk wi' th' knowledge that ye no nay ne'er walk alone. People, morrrr than things, have t' be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed. Remember, if ye e'er need a helpin' hand, ye will come across one at th' end o' each o' yer arms. As ye grow older, ye will discover that ye have two hands, one fer helpin' yourself and th' other fer helpin' others.”

“What should concern us be not that we can’t take what we read on th' internet on trust—o' course ye can’t, it’s just people talking—but that we e'er got into th' dangerous habit o' believin' what we read in th' newspapers or saw on th' TV—a mistake that no one who has met an actual journalist would e'er make.”
