What a wonderful concept, part of a lavish description of a man’s character by Mark Twain.  Worth mentioning that these vaunted qualities didn’t actually result in miracles fulfilled or dreams realised.

Still, you have to start somewhere, and a positive attitude isn’t a bad place.

And may your imagination breed miracles.

‘… the happy light in his eye, the abounding hope in his heart, the persuasive tongue, the miracle-breeding imagination – they were all there.’
