I wish you love.
I wish you happiness.
I wish that you be prosperous.
In life, and in all you do.
This is a little, unoriginal ditty for you.

Manchmal sind Wörter wie ein Wald. Du stehst davor und du siehst eine Wand von Blättern, jedes anders als das andere, jedes empfängt die Sonnenstrahlen und den Wind auf seine eigene Weise, alle zusammen singen ein rauschendes Lied, hier und da ein Vogel, ein Wurm, ein Insekt.

it was a tidal wave of prosperity that washed over john billstead as he witnessed the changing of the guard. he had waited for this moment for years.

She was prosperous in both her professional and her personal endeavors. However, she couldn’t figure out how to transform from one role to the other without some degree of disillusionment. Someday, she hoped, she would find a way to integrate the personality traits and demands that both roles dictated she master.

I hadn’t turned back once, I couldn’t believe time had caught up with me, and everything had come crashing to my feet just like that!
My job, my house, my family, all lost over one stupid mistake!
Stupidly thinking I was invincible, that I couldn’t loose that bet, that I could remain prosperous in this dog-eat-dog world.

Prosperous? What’s that? I’m from a Third World Country. Here we don’t use the word prosperous, the only “P” word we know is poor. Horribly tragic I know, but it happens. People look down on us and it sucks but who cares..I’m just not meant to be prosperous.
By amber mulholland on 10.07.2011
it’s preposterous how prosperous some of us are how we swim in pools of money all by ourselves and loneliness is wiped away because possessions take its place but in reality that space can never be filled by anything other than love, compassion, and the companionship of others. so isn’t it preposterous how prosperous we all wish that we were?

He’s chunky. Like outdated ricotta cheese. The smile on his face let you know you’re in for some big ass trouble. No kinda deals. Not ehre. He doesn’t have time to let you in on his secrets. His pockets are padded and his stomach full. He doesn’t care whatyou have to wsay and wouldn’t understand it if you explained. It stuns him when he encounters argument. The fly in the milk is a flat tire on his mercedes. It’s slow work, calling AAA

prosperity is subjective. it’s all a matter of opinion and what’s important to you. someone may be prosperous in terms of money if material wealth is what you value. for me, i consider myself to be prosperous when i’m surrounded by family and friends and love. because that’s all i need. because that’s what’s important.
By cassi on 10.07.2011
Prosperous. When I hear that word, I immediately think of wealth. Of someone in a huge, beautiful room with lots of beautiful things, standing there looking beautiful, saying, “Well, I made it!” Can you be prosperous without being happy though? Because I can’t separate the two words in my mind. You can be wealthy and unhappy, but prosperous – that’s happiness.

filling your pockets with gold and jewels, icing the cake of your life with the sugar of fortune. Do not become too heavy with material goods, you may sink into the river of loss.

One day, there was a prince in an Islamic kingdom. His troves of gold made many of his subjects think he was prosperous. However, little did they know that he was dissatisfied with his portion; to him, prosperity meant attaining all of the riches in the land. The servants knew better. Prosperity is being satisfied with one’s lot in life.
By Zachary Katz on 10.07.2011
I wish i knew what this word meant. Who knows? I always thought it meant something that is full or rich? Who knows, oh well. But this would have been a lovely story anyways. Sooo yeah. I’m off to a bad start :(

I’ve no talk of prosperity to give you. I am an old man, and like every old man before him, I’ve seen very much. Unlike them, I will not go on about the “wisdom” I’ve gained, because I have none. I am but an old fool, who’s biggest achievement was to simply have the decency to stay and raise a family, even if it was against his very nature.

“Completely prosperous,” the war hardened blond general assured his smaller lithe companion. The smaller man’s jaw nearly dropped as the general bowed to a creature too large to be called a man. It was a being made of metal and spikes with dark strips across its body that opened up to a dark abyss within.
“I completely assure you, with our lord on the field victory is assured.” The General gently bopped the smaller man’s mouth closed as the metal beast–this ‘lord’–walked away. “And through victory peace.”
“Peace,” the smaller man repeated, wetting his lips. “Tha–that was–”
“Lord Angril, whom we all follow and love,” the General nodded. “Though on the battlefield the men all simply call him the ‘Hammer’.”

I wanted to be prosperous – not realizing the zen idea of “wanting” fulfills itself. I quit worrying about prosperity and have found my life rich with work, family, friends, a garden, blue skies, dark nights, full moons. Prosperity ebbs and flows, but remains in the perception.

“Whoever you are, I’m not some prosperous old rich fuck’s son, if that what’s behind this whole charade!” Jensen growled from the floorboards of the van.
“Just shut your pie hole, you ungrateful wretch. You’re just a son of a bitch as far as I’m concerned,” came a sultry female voice, and then he felt a stabbing pain in his side as a boot jabbed harshly from out of nowhere.

The People were prosperous in that they always had plenty. They were prepared to share when the opportunity arose, but as far as I know no one has ever seen them. Perhaps this is why they prosper, because they need not worry about getting attached to material things.

The village was prosperous this year. And, Sarah knew, it was entirely—completely—do to her.
She strolled through the alabaster-white bushes, touching each gentle frond with rough fingers. This…
This was all hers.

crazy, unimaginable for some.
what the hell are you doing? but is a tool for the genius.
and idea that is out of the ordinary.
something that the “crazy ones, the misfits the round pegs on in the square holes” come up with. often times prosperous things are just that, prosperous. but every once in awhile – they are revolutionary.

Her husband had never been particularly prosperous – however, she had thought they were contented, as contented as they could be. The mill was not running at a loss, though the other Master’s looked on them with disdain as if they should be more wealthy, bleeding the workers dry and taking every last penny they could so they could only pay a paltry sum to the men, women and children who worked there.

I would like to live a prosperous life. Prosperous is a word that describes the way of life for an individual. For example, If I am living a prosperous life, I am living a good and peacful life.

You’re on the top of the world when you’re making all the dough
but you can’t look down
or the go-go-go mentality fades
and you start seeing in shades of possibility again
probability and then
then you start acting like everything you’ve wanted
isn’t all it’s cracked up to be
you start wanting people instead of money
then, then again
you start wondering if it’s worth it to prosper
if that’s only fostering fading feelings
these dealings you can’t deal with
when the end rolls around.

Being a writer isn’t prosperous. It’s not meant to be. At least, financially, it’s not meant to be. Creatively, you could have all the money in the world. Only instead of money, you have words. Lots of them. Locked in vaults of gold and carried around in checkbooks. Want to buy a story? I have plenty. That’s my prosperity. My spirit. And no matter how small of a paycheck I may get, I’m happy with my “annual income.”

its what were all trying to be, are we successful? im really not sure. but all i can hope for is that i am, i want to do things with my life. i dont want to be dragged down by anything, or anyone getting in my way. ill always be, ill always do, and above all else i will rise to get what i want, and to do what i need.
By Jared on 10.07.2011
So many people feel like prosperity & success are synonymous. I measure my prosperity in so many different ways. For me, the only thing synonymous with being prosperous is being blessed.

Sometimes things remind you of being prosperous. When I hear the word prosperous I think of the pilgrims. I don’t know why, because they were far from prosperous. They had a lot of trouble with finding the things that they needed. Don’t we feel like that sometimes? Like we don’t know what to do, or where to look for it?
By Jordan URL on 10.07.2011
i want to be prosperous and be successful in my life. i believe that i have the means to achieve this goal through my hard work charisma and ability to set and reach goals for myself. i think that the people who influence me the most are prosperous and have good morals and beliefs which only bring them higher.
