"It has often been said that love and devilment often walk hand in hand between Haworth and Hell.
Who is wise enough to ever know the true thoughts of another or the unconscious intentions of a person betrayed? Whom among us can gaze into the face of a clown to see beyond the smile that is warm outside and cold within?
There is so much unanswered and so much unknown about the depths of mankind's twisted mind, that to unravel its source would require a lifetime's intricate unpicking of weave by an army of spiders working around the clock. There are so many questions which have more than than one meaningful answer.
So the next time your wife or partner asks you to tell her the time, answer not 'where? why?' or 'when?' but instead give her the answer she wants to hear; the only answer she'll ever accept. The next time your five-year-old angelic daughter looks at a pregnant woman's tummy, pokes it in marvelment and asks, 'But how did the baby get in there, Daddy?' simply put on your devilish smile and supply her with the good old-fashioned Haworth answer,'The same way it will get out!'
There is no point making life any more complicated than it is, so keep it simple and smile the smile of a clown." William Forde: September 12th, 2014.
