Motivation will almost always beat mere talent.”   —   Norman R. Augustine

(This was a difficult solve for me.  The quote had eight A’s, but only five E’s are used!  After finally seeing ALWAYS everything else fell into place.  This appears to be the first Norman R. Augustine quote used in the Crytpoquote, since I’ve posting these spoilers.  So, we welcome Mr. Augustine to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  RISK HIS NECK

(Wow!  This is a novel Jumble!  Very clever use of phrase and cartoon.  It’s hard to call this a stinky pun, as it’s both figurative and literal.  Bravo!

None of today’s clue words are new.  And, I was a little surprised, as I can’t recall seeing “duress” before.  I almost had to back into it.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, with “kahik” having definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout was a great eleven letter jumble.  It gave nothing away.  I saw HIS NECK, and then easily figured out RISK.

Very cool African Savanna scene cartoon.  A nicely proportioned giraffe.  And I enjoyed the Umbrella Thorn Acacia tree off in the distance!  Today’s Jumble is worthy of the Puzzle Hall of Fame.  Very well done, guys.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
