Cryptoquote Spoiler – 07/11/17

Good timber does not grow with ease.  The stronger the wind, the stronger the trees.”   —   Thomas S. Monson

(Now, I didn’t fall for THAT.  But, I did fall for something ELSE!  I’m getting to the end of the puzzle, and I’m thinking:  What the heck?  The first sentence made no sense to me, and who has a name like THOMLS?  Finally, I leaned back and realized there were no As in my version of the quote!  This realization actually gave me EASE before THOMAS sunk in!  Maybe I was still a little loopy from the antihistamine I took last night.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  And, only now am I realizing that the quote rhymes!  Yeesh!     YUR

    I had the same pitfall with “else’ before seeing “ease”

    Actually this quote is from the poem “Good Timber” by Douglas Malloch, Mr. Monson borrowed it. I am surprised it was not properly attributed.

    Wow! Awesome catch, Lee! I don’t know if Ms. Kornbluh reads my blog, or not, but hopefully this will get back to her. Thank you, for setting us straight!
