Paddington Bear by Michael BondForty years ago, a small bear from Darkest Peru set out on the adventure of a lifetime. Carrying a battered suitcase containing several jars of marmalade and other essentials, and wearing a tag around his neck that read Please Look After This Bear, he stowed away on a ship headed for faraway England. When he arrived at Londons busy Paddington Station, the little bear was discovered by Mr. and Mrs. Brown. As luck would have it, the Browns were just the sort of people to welcome a lost bear into their family. They promptly named him Paddington, after the station, and took him home to 32 Windsor Gardens, where he has lived ever since.

You have to believe that those privileged from birth achieve success all on their own. You have to be against all government programs, but expect Social Security checks on time. I've been tested by fire, and the fire lost.
