A hero is no braver than an ordinary man, but he is braver five minutes longer.”   —   Ralph Waldo Emerson

(Usually, about five seconds sooner too.  We don’t know if we can be a hero until we’re in the heat of the moment.  I think most of us would measure up.  I had some trouble getting this one started, but then I broke my own rule and looked at the author.  From there it was a piece of cake.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    This particular author is an irresistible giveaway, revealing a phenomenal twelve (12) letters, nearly half the alphabet! The constructor would probably throw me (and lots of folks) a loop if he/she amended the name to “R. Waldo Emerson” or “R.W. Emerson” or simply “Emerson.”

    As you probably know, I’ve suggested just that, here on this blog. Of course, no one from the Cryptoquote has ever contacted me, not like Hoyt and Knurek have, for the Jumble. So, I don’t know if they even know about my spoilers. But today, I’m glad they didn’t take me up on it. Maybe, I was just a little tired, but I was kind of spinning my wheels until I noticed the author.

    Thanks for the comment, pal.

    9/20/14 Cryp *was* a bit more challenging. Plus, I had never heard of the author.

    Yeah. Three words starting with CONS was quite a challenge! Also, not familiar with the author, but I was able to figure it out. — YUR 🙂
