Real nobility is based on scorn, courage and profound indifference.”   —   Albert Camus

(This one almost had me calling it quits!  I hated the thought of admitting defeat.  I toyed with ALBERT being the author’s first name, but completely forgot about Camus.  I was pretty certain the W was A and the C was I, then the R being E, and using those with ALBERT got me to REAL, then NOBILITY.  Then it all fell into place.  Strange kind of quote though!  I take it he wasn’t referring to the aristocracy, but to virtue and integrity.  It’s still a bit much for my little pea-brain to comprehend!  How do you guys interpret this quote?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Agree that this one was tough. I too rapidly settled on ALBERT while having little filled in on the actual quote. With the second letter of the five-letter last name being A, I immediately remembered him as one of those existentialist or nihilist or something-ist dudes we were forced to read in high school. Once those extra four letters were put in, the quote fell quickly. I still don’t know what it means, but that ain’t the goal here.

    The names often help. The other day there was a single five-letter last name. I figured it had to be PLATO, and it sure made the quote fall quickly.

    It *was* a bit of a poser, Uncle Rave, but the long, last word pretty much had to end in -ENCE, and that was my toehold to solution. A quote like this shows you why it was so hard to be an existentialist!

    Yeah, Art!

    I really needed to go to the name today. I stayed away from Plato the other day. Those five and six-letter authors are too big of a giveaway!


    I was also seeing the ENCE, but I was too locked in on INTELLIGENCE! It took me quite a while to get to INDIFFERENCE.

    Glad I wasn’t the only one who thought this was tough! — YUR
