Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 12/23/18

No man is lonely while eating spaghetti – it requires so much attention.”   —   Christopher Morely

(Cute.  But, I prefer his last message to his friends:  “Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, every day, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to continually be part of unanimity.”  That’s the message that I repeatedly – albeit far less elegantly – try to impart to you, the readers of this blog.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Big shots are only little shots who keep shooting.”   —   Christopher Morley

(Kind of a surprisingly simplistic message of perseverance, from someone who liked to think differently.  Certainly, there IS merit in perseverance, but you also need talent . . . and a little luck, in order to succeed.  I like his final message, that was published shortly after his death.  “Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, every day, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to continually be part of unanimity.”  Now, THAT’S a message!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The bicycle, the bicycle surely, should always be the vehicle of novelists and poets.”   —   Christopher Morley

(Man!  And people say I’m strange!  Just kidding.  Very poetic quote.  And, a bit of a bitch to decode!  Of course, I made it a little more difficult than it really had to be.  I was fairly certain that the first word had to be either THE or ONE, but I was reluctant to take the plunge.  However, even after penciling in the E – yes, I said penciling – I had a hard time getting any traction.  I had strong suspicions about SHOULD, but figuring out the first name was Christopher became the big key.  Good fun!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

It is as grandmothers that our mothers come into the fullness of their grace.”   —   Christopher Morely

(A beautiful line from the section on Mothers, in the Book:  Mince Pie, by Christopher Morely.  I’d like to dedicate this quote to my baby sister, who became a grandmother just last week!  Blood-wise, she is actually ahead of me, although I am the proud Grampa of three, via my handsome and talented step-sons.  I’m going to treat you guys to a link to the online-literature page on Morely’s Mothers.  I think you’ll enjoy it.  Thanks, Rebecca!  Be well and do good, friends.  Love and appreciate your moms!)   —   YUR

When you sell a man a book, you don’t sell him twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue, you sell him a whole new life.”   —   Christopher Morley

(And when you give a friend a book . . .  Hey, ralis95!  I am actually reading your book!  It’s just that I am a very slow reader, and I simply do not budget my time very well.  Sorry, bro.  I AM enjoying it though!  We’ll talk later.)   —   YUR
