Cryptoquote Spoiler – 02/02/18

Fire hath its force abated by water, not by wind; and anger must be allayed by cold words, and not by blustering threat.”   —   Anne Bradstreet

(Our first Anne Bradstreet quote, and it’s a beauty!  The best thing about the Cryptoquote is that it introduces me/us to all sorts of writers and actors, artists and scientists, and politicians and philosophers, and religious figures who have somehow escaped my/our attentions.  Great words from one of the earliest “English poets of North America and first writer in England’s North American colonies to be published.”  As per Wikipedia.  The members of ANTIFA would do well to heed these words, as well as the words of Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Agreed, UR! An excellent sentiment for our divided times. Thank you, Ms. Bradstreet.

    This is bullshit. If you going to use a word like ‘hath’ then it should say something with regards to that.

    It’s just an old, poetic way of saying “has”, Burt. — YUR 🙂

    That particular 4-letter combination is most often THAT, and occasionally SAYS or ELSE. I like the challenge of seeing it come out as something different. And, I didn’t make HASH of it …

    Well, Roy. You are a learned sophisticated man of the world! And, an experienced Cryptoquote solver. And, now . . . I’m hungry for hash! — YUR
