Wish
 
  Wishes, like castles in the air, are inexpensive and not taxable.
            —Sam Slick
  1
Wishes, like painted landscapes, best delight,
Whilst distance recommends them to the sight.
Placed far off, they beautiful appear;
But show their coarse and nauseous colours, near.
            —Thomas Yalden
