Helping VS Enabling: 9 Differences You Should Know - Happier Human

Spread love everywhere you go.  Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.”   —   Mother Teresa

(Oh, that we all should behave this way!  There is just so much fear and animosity in the world these days.  Maybe, the best thing we could all do is to turn off all the news, and just try to be a little more human to each other.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Lewis Black: The man behind the rant – WABE

I like coffee because it gives me the illusion that I might be awake.”   —   Lewis Black

(Lewis is definitely one funny guy!  And, socially conscious too.  It looks like this is the first of his quotes to be used at the Cryptoquote.  So, we welcome Lewis Black to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Oddly, today’s Celebrity Cipher is by Miguel de Cervantes, who’s been dead for over 400 years, while Lewis Black is very much alive and well, and more fits today’s definition of a celebrity.  Did the newspaper get their wires crossed?  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Alice Walker - Freedom From Religion Foundation

The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.”   —   Alice Walker

(And, that is exactly what the bastards want us to think!  That we don’t have any power.  We can either allow SCOTUS to weaken the Voting rights Act, undo Roe v. Wade, and possibly Gay Marriage – and maybe even Interracial Marriage – or we can fight back and elect the people who will codify these rights into law.  Then maybe we can overturn the abomination of Citizens United too!  If you’re not already registered to vote, do it as soon as possible.  And, then vote!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Hermione Lee's Biography of Tom Stoppard, Reviewed | The New Yorker

It’s not the voting that’s democracy; it’s the counting.   —   Tom Stoppard

(According to a Gallup poll:  “31% of Americans identified as Democrats, 25% identified as Republican, and 41% as Independent.”  And, “Sixty-seven percent of independents said they do NOT want Trump to run again, while just 28% said they do.”  –  NPR/PBS poll.  And, these numbers aren’t really all that current.  With SCOTUS repealing Roe v. Wade, and hinting that they might look to repeal Gay marriages, and perhaps even interracial marriages, the January 6th hearings, and the Mar A Lago FBI raid findings, I think that Trump’s support is likely even less than above.  Sometimes it takes some time for – basically good – people to come to their senses.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Did Alex Haley Lie To Us? | Revue

In every conceivable manner, the family is link to our past, bridge to our future.”   —   Alex Haley

(Some internet sites include the article “a” before the word “link”.  This line could be from one of Alex’s books, spoken by a character who either isn’t educated, or just isn’t big on articles.  But that puts me in mind of the 1976 comedy movie “Murder By Death”.  It was a whodunnit send up to fictional book/movie detectives.  Truman Capote’s character finally goes off on Peter Seller’s Sidney Wang character for ALWAYS omitting the article when he speaks.  With today’s political correctness the movie probably couldn’t be made, as it uses the stereotypes of these famous fictional detectives, but it is still very funny in my book.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Amazon.com: Ain't the Beer Cold!: 9781888698527: Thompson, Chuck: BooksChuck Thompson | Official Publisher Page | Simon & Schuster

No place is ever as bad as they tell you it’s going to be.      Chuck Thompson

(Not sure if this is the deceased Baltimore sportscaster, or the living author of “Better Off Without ‘Em”!  Could be either one, I guess.  Since neither one of them has appeared in the Cryptoquote before, I guess we can welcome the both of them to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Senthil Venkatesh Ranjith Kumar: Chief Seattle's Speech

All things share the same breath . . . the air shares its spirit with all the life it supports.   —   Chief Seattle

(And, to think that most 19th Century white men considered him to be a “savage”!  Thank the stars above that we now get it.  I’m not 100% sure we’ve had one of his quotes before, so – just to be safe – we will welcome Chief Seattle to the Cryptoquote Club today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Elephant with smoking jacket by Dreekzilla on DeviantArt

Nature’s great masterpiece, an elephant; the only harmless great thing.”   —   John Donne

(Those 16th-17th Century poets were a little out there, weren’t they?!  I highly doubt this poem is why the Republican party adopted the elephant as their symbol.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Nelson Mandela, Transformational Leader | Inc.com

It is in your hands to make a better world for all who live in it.”   —   Nelson Mandela

(Good ol’ Nellie!  He fought against apartheid, and won!  They could use someone like Nelson Mandela in the State of Israel.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Bill Murray to Play Villain in Next 'Ant-Man and the Wasp' | HYPEBEAST

Unless you are a pizza, the answer is yes, I can live without you.”   —   Bill Murray

(One of the funniest guys of all time!  And, as far as I know, he’s never been a stand-up comedian.  He’s an amazing comic actor . . . who can also deftly handle dramatic roles.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
