I salute you if you remember every rhyming phrase in Humpty Dumpty’s story

I sent a message to the fish
I told them “This is what I wish.”
The little fishes of the sea,
They sent an answer back to me.
The little fishes’ answer was
We cannot do it, Sir, because —”’

'I'm afraid I don't quite understand,' said Alice.
'It gets easier further on,' Humpty Dumpty replied.

I sent to them again to say
It will be better to obey.”
The fishes answered, with a grin,
Why, what a temper you are in!”
I told them once, I told them twice:
They would not listen to advice.
I took a kettle large and new,
Fit for the deed I had to do.
My heart went hop, my heart went thump:
I filled the kettle at the pump.
Then some one came to me and said
The little fishes are in bed.”
I said to him, I said it plain,
Then you must wake them up again.”
I said it very loud and clear:
I went and shouted in his ear.’

In winter, when the fields are white,
I sing this song for your delight

In spring, when woods are getting green, I’ll try and tell you what I mean:

'In summer, when the days are long,
Perhaps you’ll understand the song:

In autumn, when the leaves are brown,
Take pen and ink, and write it down.’

THIS BIT IN THE BOOK MADE ME LAUGH SO HARD!

"A nickname?"

"Yeah, it’s what my friends call me."

"I’m well aware of what a nickname is."

6 things to remember in life to be happy.


1. You are the most important person in your life, you need to live to make yourself happy. You can’t make someone else happy when you’re no happy.
2. Dress to impress yourself. Never wear something you don’t feel confident in, express yourself through your clothing and feel confident and other people will notice that confidence.
3. You can’t take back the past so instead of letting it get to you let it make you teach you for the future. Don’t let little regrets hold you back because you can’t change it but what you can change is the present.
4. Everything happens for a reason. You are right where you need to be at this very moment, you control your life and if you work hard you can achieve anything you dream of so never give up.
5. You don’t get what you want without working hard for it. Everyone dreams of the perfect body or perfect life, you can’t get those things without working for it. Good things happen to those who work hard. Nothing will change if you excuse is always tomorrow, so imagine reaching your goal.
6. Life is to short to be unhappy. There is always a positive to a negative. You have so many reasons to be happy so don’t rely on someone else happiness to make you happy. If you are not happy with something in your life then don’t wait for tomorrow to fix it, fix it now before you are left with regret.
