(I can dig it!  The second part of this quotation is really humorous, and it drives home the point.  “For that reason, I am always scared and ill at ease when I enter a house in which there are no ash trays.”  Marvelous!   This was a tough one.  No 3 letter words, only one 2 letter words and one 1 letter word.  My first inkling had the second and third words as:  IS A, and then I thought HATE was HAVE.  But, I was able to straighten everything out.  Be well and do good, friends!)   —   YUR

PS.  I realize that Hatsuhana was Japanese, while Lin Yutang was Chinese, but I found this while looking up penance, to reply to Lesley’s comment, and I just couldn’t resist it.  It’s very cool!  Dig it!   —   YUR

    YUR:

    As luck would have it, I opted for AS I to start with, then grabbed MUCH out of the air as being the probable lead word. REASONABLE was an interesting word to solve, what? I had never heard of the author before. That makes two in row.

    Best, ralis95

    Sadly, I can’t say that I am familiar with him or his work either, ralis95.
