(Tough) Cryptoquote Spoiler – 06/08/11

You are not what you think you are...But what ...

Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.”   —   Norman Vincent Peale

(Perhaps the truest statement ever made!  I would’ve thought that we had seen other Norman Vincent Peale quotes, since this blog started, but, apparently not.  This is the first, and it’s a great one.  Today’s quotation took a while to decipher.  For me, it all started with figuring out:  YOUR, YOU and CANNOT.  From there everything fell into place.  I wonder if Lady Gaga is a fan of Mr. Peale’s?  I wouldn’t be too surprised.  Be well and do good, friends.  You can do it!)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  When the captain didn’t get his promotion, it was a . . .

Answer:  MAJOR SETBACK

(Much better, today!  Huh?!  Am I right, or what!  The shorter clue words were a little more challenging than the long ones.  The answer letters were VERY nicely scrambled.  And, you had to think, a little, to figure out the answer.  It certainly helps to know that Major follows Captain in most military organizations.  So, I guess I can see this stumping some of you out there.  Do good and be well, my friends.)   —   YUR
