Cryptoquote Spoiler – 07/13/19

Some people with great virtues are disagreeable, while others with great vices are delightful.”   —   La Rochefoucauld

(I kind of feel like I cheated with this one.  I was pretty sure I identified the E right off the bat, but the A gave me second thoughts, because EEA is not all that common.  So, I looked at the author, and saw it was most likely ED, DE . . . or LA, and I quickly recognized the famous Frenchman.  That gave me a lot to work with.  I don’t know why I sometimes have trouble spotting PEOPLE.  Maybe the X’s threw me off today?  The quote is just so true!  Give me a man, or woman, with vices any day!  Virtuous people can be such a bore.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    PEOPLE is a “gimme.” With LA ROCHEFOUCAULD, a frequent Cryp attribution, this one was a shoo-in!

    PEOPLE should be a “gimme”, but I wasn’t seeing it yesterday. I was at least two thirds done before I saw it! Like I said, maybe the X’s threw me off. I don’t know. Frenchie was a BIG help to me! — YUR

    He was one of the men Louis XIV kept away from power.

    My French history – or at least my memory of it – is rudimentary, at best! But, I trust that you know! — YUR
