All human wisdom is summed up in two words; wait and hope.”   —   Alexandre Dumas

(I know that his name should put me in mind of “The Three Musketeers” and “The Count of Monte Cristo”, but my pea brain always goes to that commercial where the smarmy punk, who thinks he’s just nailed his interview, asks the interviewer:   So, what do you think, Mr. Dumb-ass?  And the older gent – with veto power – simply replies:  It’s pronounced Du-mah.  That commercial always cracked me up!   But I don’t recall what it was for.  Does anyone remember it?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Alexandre Dumas (père) | Random Phoughts

Kings will lose their privilege, as stars which have completed their time lose their splendor.”   —   Dumas, “Pere”

(This could apply to our Donald Trump.  He’s not actually a King, of course, but he seems to think that he is.  It looks like Rebecca got a little inventive with the author’s name!  Alexandre Dumas, the great 19th Century writer, was often called “Père“, which – strangely enough – is French for father!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state with another, nothing more.”   —   Alexandre Dumas

(Duuuuuuuuuude!  That is just too middle of the road, ultra-objective . . . even for me.  Both of these “emotions” can be fairly extreme, with a lot of gray in between.  But, surely, there are very definitive times of happiness AND misery, where no comparison is necessary.  He must’ve either jaded, or a little too comfortably numb when he made this statement.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
