As heard on the Good Stuff with Jim Thompson

 

'Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we

are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again

at Christmas time.'

~Laura Ingalls Wilder

 

'I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.'

~Charles Dickens

 

'He who has no Christmas in his heart will never find Christmas under a

tree.'

~Roy L. Smith

 

'I heard the bells on Christmas Day their old, familiar carols play,

  And wild and sweet the words repeat of peace on earth, goodwill to men.'

~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

 

'Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree.  In the eyes of

children, they are all 30 feet tall.'

~Larry Wilde

 

'Each year I have a long-standing Christmas shopping complaint.'

~Bob Griffin

 

'One of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the

living room on Christmas day. Don't clean it up too quickly.'

~Andy Rooney

 

'The earth has grown old with its burden of care

But at Christmas it always is young,

The heart of the jewel burns lustrous and fair

And its soul full of music breaks the air,

When the song of angels is sung.'

~Phillip Brooks
