Cryptoquote Spoiler – 03/10/14


Ralph Waldo Emerson - Success

Ralph Waldo Emerson – Success (Photo credit: mmc154)

There was never a child so lovely but his mother was glad to get him to sleep.”   —   Ralph Waldo Emerson

(Even tending to the best behaved child is an exhausting undertaking.  Their curiosity alone will tire you out! 

I really wish they would alter the names of some of the authors of these quotes.  Making today’s:  Ralph W. Emerson, or R. Waldo Emerson, or just R. W. Emerson would have made today’s cryptoquote just that much more challenging.  I try not to look at the author, but sometimes it is unavoidable.  When the author is this obvious it’s like having a key to decoding the cryptogram!  It takes away half of the fun!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I totally agree, Uncle Rave. This author is a *gimme* that practically tips off the whole cryp. (Others include Josh Billings, Will Rogers, Helen Keller, Henry Ward Beecher, and the marvelous La Rochefoucauld.) However, the sentiment expressed is very well taken.

    Henry David Thoreau, Mark Twain, and Abraham Lincoln are a few more who are pretty much giveaways too. Some of the single named authors too. Some of them can be altered/addressed better than others. I just wish they would be a little more sensitive to this unfortunate fact. — YUR
