Lesson from a classic

"But you were always a good man of business, Jacob," faltered Scrooge, who now began to apply this to himself. 
"Business!" cried the Ghost, wringing its hands again. "Mankind was my business. The common welfare was my business; charity, mercy, forbearance, and benevolence, were, all, my business. The dealings of my trade were but a drop of water in the comprehensive ocean of my business!" 
-The Christmas Carol, Charles Dickens


On the tenth day of Christmas my true love gave to me..
Ten lords a-leaping,
Nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a-milking, 
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying, 
Five golden rings, 
Four calling birds, 
Three french hens, 
Two turtle doves, 
and A partridge in a pear tree.
