Here is an example with a jpeg image. A txt file works the same:

it's too easy:

1. create a resource script file (*.RC) with a any text editor (for example: myresource.rc)
fill 1 string:
MyText RCDATA "mytext.txt"
where "mytext.txt" your text file filename

2. and run this command in DOS console:
BRCC32 myresource.rc
this will create a resource file (myresources.res)

3. use in your source code
{$R myresources.res}

4. and for load :
var
 ResourceStream : TResourceStream;

begin
ResourceStream := TResourceStream.CreateFromID(HInstance, MyText, RT_RCDATA);

 and use
LoadFromStream(); (LoadFromStream(ResourceStream);)
 for loading into your component
