Personality has power to uplift, power to depress, power to curse, and power to bless.”   —   Paul Harris

(Wow!  I don’t know about you guys, but I thought this one was a tough solve, too.  Maybe not as tough as yesterday’s, but right up there.  I didn’t think there were any gimmes in this puzzle.  I figured the N had to be the A, and the B was most likely the S, and took it from there.  About midway through I realized the repeating word was “power” and the first word was “personality”, but this was nearly a letter for letter solve.  Very often I figure out the E and the T right off the bat, but save them for the very end.  It makes the more mundane ones a little more challenging.  But, I couldn’t get away with that today.  This appears to be the first Paul Harris quote since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  He was the founder of the Rotary Club, which used to be a pretty big deal when I was a kid – and before.  It’s still out there.  It has a wonderful mission statement, and it seems like an organization that we could all benefit from with its resurgence.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Definitely not a *gimme* today, Unc Rave, but repeated letter in author’s last name was huge help. Also, once I noticed the difference between I and J … meaning that UCIVJ XC could not be THERE IS … I was on my way. Yes, a Cryp like this one stands in stark contrast to the last two Jumbles, which were as easy as falling off a horse!
