Cryptoquote Spoiler – 05/04/16

When you have spoken the word, it reigns over you.  When it is unspoken, you reign over it.”   —   Arabian Proverb

(It’s been quite a while since we’ve seen any proverb, and this appears to be the first Arabian one, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  It’s a little on the funky side, for a simple man, such as I.  What do you guys make of it???  Be well and do good, friends.)  —   YUR

    Maybe along the lines of “think before you speak” or “some things are better left unsaid.”

    Here is how I interpret this: If you say something bad, you can’t take it back. If you don’t say it, even if you may feel that way, you have more control over the situation.

    I’ve never seen a proverb here before! At first I wasn’t having much trouble with solving the quote/proverb itself, but then I just wasn’t getting the name! Part of it was because I put BROKEN/UNBROKEN instead of SPOKEN/UNSPOKEN. And the other part was because I was expecting the name of a person :/ Eventually I just decided to come to your blog, UR 🙂

    P.S. Thanks for the great interpretation, Vijay! It’s very true that in some situations, you should bite your tongue!
