Every gift which is given, even though small, is in reality great, if it is given with affection.”   —   Pindar

(When my buddy, Chris, buys me a beer at the bar, I’m almost brought to tears.  I had to write out the remaining letters, DJKPQXZ, to come up with the author.  But, it didn’t take long after that.  This appears to be our first Pindar quote, since I’ve been posting the spoilers.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The most incredible thing about miracles is that they happen.”   —   G. K. Chesterton

(Teddy Roosevelt’s wimpier twin???  More of a Puff Rider, than a Rough Rider!  This was a very easy solve today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

It may be half full of water, precious in itself, but in the other half there’s a rainbow that could exist only in the vacant space.”   —   Alice Walker

(So, take THAT, you half-empty pessimists!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I prefer temperance hotels, although they sell worse liquor than any other kind of hotels.”   —   Artemus Ward

(I’d never heard of a “temperance hotel”, but that’s what played out!  We’ve seen Artemus Ward before though.  America’s first stand-up comedian, allegedly.  Made for nice cryptic solve!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Every birthday, every celebration ends with something sweet, a cake, and people remember.”   —   Buddy Valastro

(Aah!  The “Cake Boss” guy!  I love cake.  But then again, I also like ice cream . . . and cookies . . . and pie . . . and pastries!  Probably why I’m overweight . . . and on metformin . . . and on atorvastatin.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

There’s nothing so kingly as kindness, and nothing so royal as truth.”   —   Alice Cary

(I’d never heard of her, but I’m digging this quote!  Also, she’s far more fetching than ol’ George.  Kindness and truth are two of the noblest attributes going.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Delicious Autumn!  My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.”   —   George Eliot

(Good ol’ George!  Not exactly fair of face.  Oh, is this a form of body shaming???  And, what if it is?  Get over it!  Anybody who loves Autumn – like me – is alright in my book.  But hey, she was actually a Monday’s child!  So anyway, I love her quote.  But, I’m not sure that it would be possible to seek successive autumns, by flying about the world.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
