Passion Illustrations

  • MozartA young man is reported to have approached the renowned composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (one of the great musical prodigies of all time), and asked, "Herr Mozart, I have the ambition to write symphonies and perhaps you can advise me how to get started."

    Mozart said, "The best advice I can give you is to wait until you are older and more experienced, and try your hand at less ambitious pieces to begin with."

    The young man looked astonished. "But, Herr Mozart, you yourself wrote symphonies when you were considerably younger than I."

    "Ah," said Mozart, "but I did so without asking advice."

  • airplane1A nervous attendant on a flight announced: "I don't know how this happened, but we have 100 passengers aboard and only 40 dinners."

    When the passengers' muttering had died down, she continued, "Anyone who is kind enough to give up his meal so someone else can eat will receive free drinks for the length of the flight."

    Her next announcement came an hour later. "If anyone wants to change his mind, we still have 29 dinners available!"

  • man angryOn the Upper West Side lived a man who was a very militant atheist but he sent his son to Trinity School because, despite its Christian roots, it was a great school. After a month, the boy comes home and says casually, "By the way Dad, do you know what Trinity means? It means the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost."

    The father can barely control his rage. He seizes his son by the shoulders and declares,

    "Danny, I'm going to tell you something now and I want you never to forget it. There is only one God and we don't believe in Him!"

  • beigeThe customer ordering a floral arrangement from my shop was giving me very specific guidelines. "Nothing fragrant," she instructed. "Nothing too tall or too wild. And no bright colors, please. My house is decorated in beige and cream. Here is a wallpaper sample." She handed me a plain square of tan-colored paper.

    "Your name?" I asked.

    "Mrs. Bland," the woman replied.
