Cryptoquote Solved – 04/06/22

Over 20,000 People Want to Rename the High School Maya Angelou  Attended—After Her | Glamour

When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.”   —   Maya Angelou

(Strange quote.  I don’t think I agree with this.  But this made for a very quick solve.  The E was easy to spot, and the author’s name kind of jumped out at me.  Not so much with today’s Celebrity Cipher!  The quote wasn’t tough, but I’d never heard of the celebrity before.  An Italian actress who was Anthony Bourdain’s girlfriend.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Happy birthday to Black Francis, of The Pixies! (One of my favorite bands!)

    I wonder if Maya had anyone in particular in mind when she penned this quote … depending on the person and circumstances, it might be more palatable. And, thanks for the heads-up on Celebrity Cipher – I haven’t looked at it yet!

    Yeah, it had an air of specificity, hal. If you ignore the silly clue they try to give you it’s about the same as the Cryptoquote. — YUR

    Is this really an image of Maya Angelou ? It looks more like Oprah in later years !

    I think it’s just a photo of her about 30-40 years before she passed, lwc. — YUR

    It is my understanding that she is speaking of dangerous people, eg abusers, who make a great show of woefully apologizing and insisting they will never do it again – they have shown you who they are, believe it!

    I’d buy that, Mark! I wouldn’t be surprised if this Cryptoquote was part of a larger quote/conversation. Very often we’re just given some of a quote, and it lacks the proper context. Thank you, very much! — YUR
