Taken from Amis's The Anti-Death League, with several illiteracies "corrected" by Peter Van Inwagen:
To a Baby Born Without Limbs
This is just to show you who's boss around here. It'll keep you on your toes, so to speak. Make you put your best foot forward, so to speak. And give you something to turn your hand to, so to speak. You can face up to it like a man, Or snivel and blubber like a baby. That's up to you. Nothing to do with Me. If you take it in the right spirit, You can have a bloody marvelous life, With the great rewards courage brings, And the beauty of accepting your LOT. And think how much good it'll do your Mum and Dad, And your Grans and Gramps and the rest of the shower, To be stopped being complacent. Make sure they baptize you, though, In case some murdering bastard Decides to put you away quick, Which would send you straight to LIMB-o, ha ha ha. But just a word in your ear, if you've got one. Mind you, DO take this in the right spirit, And keep a civil tongue in you head about Me. Because if you DON'T, I've got plenty of other stuff up My sleeve, Such as leukemia and polio (Which, incidentally, you're welcome to any time, Whatever spirit you take this in). I've given you one love-pat, right? You don't want another. So watch it, Jack.
"Do not worry if you have built your castles in the air. They are where they should be. Now put the foundations under them." -Henry David Thoreau
Blue: I visited a friend tonight and a opossum walked across my path as I went to her door....then when I came home the same thing happened but as I walked to my own door. What an interesting coincidence! I will take the advice it gives me.

Kuro Tenshi: How can one prove to themself that magic is real?

Obviously: One can prove that magic works to themselves by attempting different spells and having positive results that match up with their intention. This is how one proves anything by use of experiment. Anything other than that is simple self-delusion.

Ding Dong: Is there a spell where I can just say it while my eye's are closed without making circles and all that?
