All the mistakes I ever made were when I wanted to say “No” and said “Yes”.”   —   Moss Hart

(Very easy cryptoquote to solve.  Kind of an inglorious introduction to Mr. Hart, in my opinion.  I now understand the old English connotation of Moss – it’s a derivation of Moses/drawn from the water – but I can’t see myself giving that kind of name to a kid.  It would be like naming your kid:  Mold, Fungi, Lichen, Alga or Mildew.  Why name your kid after one of the most basic forms of plant life?  Could be worse, I suppose.  I remember a – supposedly true – story of a pregnant woman being gurneyed towards the delivery room of a hospital.  She hadn’t yet decided on a name for her impending baby girl, and she overheard a doctor and nurse talking about chlamydia, and said:  Oh!  That sounds like a beautiful name!  I do hope that somebody ‘splained things to her!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
