Cryptoquote Spoiler – 06/09/20

Alfred Tennyson (Author of The Lady of Shalott)

Come friends, it’s not too late to seek a newer world.”   —   Alfred Lord Tennyson

(I had to cheat a little on the first word.  Okay a lot!  I was certain that it was either MOVE or HOPE.  COME didn’t even enter my pea brain!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  No one caught, or atleast didn’t bring up, my mistake on the Cryptoquote Spoiler from a few days ago!  Find it, and chastise me!  LOL!   —   YUR

    Who would have a fit about a great wit?

    Actually, hal, I messed up twice on this one! My “fits” should be “wits”, but also my “wounds” should be “bounds”! Besides being poorly read, my problem in properly solving this cryptogram was twofold. #1. Old English very often baffles me. and #2. This is not actually the entire quote! It’s actually: “Great wits are sure to madness near allied, and thin partitions do their bounds divide.” That one omitted word – SURE – could have made all the difference. Probably not, but it could have! Also, the quote doesn’t apply to me, as I’m only of average intelligence. They say it’s a thin line between genius and madman. Plenty of people disagree with me, but I think very few would consider me crazy.
