Prosperity Toasts

To a prosperous individual-from what I hear, he doesn't count his money, he measures it.

May we command success by deserving it.

May you live as long as you like,
And have what you like as long as you live.

When climbing the hill of prosperity, may we never meet a friend coming down.

Here's to beauty, wit, and wine; and to a full stomach, a full purse, and a light heart.

In the words of Lord Birkenhead, "Meet success like a gen­tleman and disaster like a man."

Here's to success. As Harold Helfer once said, "Success is a bright sun that obscures and makes ridiculously unimport­ant all the little shadowy flecks of failure."

To success-making more money to meet obligations you wouldn't have if you didn't make so much money

To success-the degree to which other people envy you.

To prosperity. May each of us always keep the "me" in "economy."

To prosperity-for, as John Ray said, "Money cures melan­choly."

Here's to health, peace, and prosperity-may the flower of love never be nipped by the frost of disappointment, nor the shadow of grief fall among a member of this circle.

In the words of Mary L. Booth, "May our feast days be many and our fast days be few."

Here's to long life and prosperity
To all of your posterity;
And those that don't drink with sincerity
May they be damned to eternity.

May your shadow never grow less.

Here's to your promotion. Nothing succeeds like success.

Here's to caviar when you're hungry,
Champagne when you're dry,
All the women you ever want,
And heaven when you die.

In the words of Star Trek's Mr. Spock, Live long and prosper."
