not a quote, more of a poem, but every year, near xmas this is my facebook status: Dear Santa, I'm writing you this letter as I'm feeling a little blue, so I hope you don't think I'm asking too much of you. You visit every year and leave such lovely things, But I'm wondering if you also visit our loved ones who have wings? I know you must be busy, so much to do in just one night, But can you make one extra trip to the stars that shine so bright? You see we all have special loved ones, too perfect for life on earth, No presents could we send them to truly show their worth! So could you please leave them all a gift, and put a stocking on their cloud, filled full of precious memories from their loved ones on the ground. Please stroke their sleepy heads, tell them their families love them so, That their hearts aches with sadness and their tears just seem to flow. If you could do this for me Santa, their families might be able to smile, even if it is just for a tiny little while. So thank you very much Santa for everything u do, after all Santa it is Christmas in heaven too!
Not sure if this fits in here, but Michael Fish the weatherman became famous overnight [literally] for this:
Michael Fish, MBE (born 27 April 1944 in Eastbourne, Sussex) is a semi-retired British weather forecaster, best known for his BBC Weather television presentations, although he was actually employed by the Met Office.
He became infamous in the wake of the Great Storm of 1987; a few hours before the storm broke, on 15 October 1987, he said during a forecast: "Earlier on today, apparently, a woman rang the BBC and said she heard there was a hurricane on the way... well, if you're watching, don't worry, there isn't!".
That evening, the worst storm to hit South East England for three centuries caused record damage and killed 19 people.
"We have tried religion and it failed. We have tried politics and it has failed. Now we have to try science. Give it a chance, because in three hundred years it has made more progress than man has made in his whole history of millions of years."
