Cryptoquote Spoiler – 01/18/22

Clifton Fadiman - Hollywood Star Walk - Los Angeles Times

Ennui, felt on the proper occasions, is a sign of intelligence.”   —   Clifton Fadiman

(The vast majority of us need to be mentally stimulated.  Hopefully, that means the vast majority of us are intelligent.  This is our first Clifton Fadiman quote at the Cryptoquote, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  So, we welcome Mr. Fadiman to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Yes, I had to Google Clifton Fa in order to get his last name.  I also struggled to get this one started, as my first inclination was that PROPER was PEOPLE!  But I couldn’t think of any three letter words that could end in L.  IS A SIGN got me started.  Then I saw INTELLIGENCE.  It took me a while to see PROPER!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I’m glad I was not the only who took an early bite at PEOPLE, UR! (We’re not PROPER PEOPLE?) Or had to Google Clifton FA. A tip of the hat to the Cryp folks for introducing us to Mr. Fadiman.

    I was also not going to INK in people, but I like his hint ‘proper people”. Such an easy one, and have enjoyed Fadiman bio.

    Wow, Nancy! You must be pretty darn good at these if you think that one was easy. Good for you! I also enjoy looking up many of these authors’ bios. Thanks for commenting! — YUR
