Posters for 100th Anniversary of William Saroyan on Behance

If you give to a thief, he cannot steal from you, and he is then no longer a thief.”   —   William Saroyan

(Okay, what’s this semantics B.S.?  Besides, you don’t know someone is a thief until they try to rob you.  And, once you know that you can willingly give what you want to him, but that doesn’t change what he is.  And, if you give to a thief before you know he’s a thief he’ll likely rob you anyway.  And, if you give all to him – either way – you’re left with nothing.  This seems like a namby-pamby kind of quote, to me.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Second in importance to having good aim is to recognize when to pull the trigger.”   —   Elmer G. Letterman

(A master salesman – insurance – who wrote a number of books about selling.  New to the Cryptoquote, so we welcome Elmer G. Letterman to the Cryptoquote Club today.  Apparently no relation to David Letterman.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clifton Fadiman - Hollywood Star Walk - Los Angeles Times

Ennui, felt on the proper occasions, is a sign of intelligence.”   —   Clifton Fadiman

(The vast majority of us need to be mentally stimulated.  Hopefully, that means the vast majority of us are intelligent.  This is our first Clifton Fadiman quote at the Cryptoquote, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  So, we welcome Mr. Fadiman to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Yes, I had to Google Clifton Fa in order to get his last name.  I also struggled to get this one started, as my first inclination was that PROPER was PEOPLE!  But I couldn’t think of any three letter words that could end in L.  IS A SIGN got me started.  Then I saw INTELLIGENCE.  It took me a while to see PROPER!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

2 x Vintage Zest Deodorant Beauty Bar Soap 3-3/4 oz Bars | eBay

Zest is the secret of all beauty.  There is no beauty that is attractive without zest.”   —   Christian Dior

(Would he be referring to lime or lemon zest???  LOL!  Or, maybe he was angling for a deal with Zest Bar Soap!  “You’re not fully clean unless you’re Zest-fully clean!”  LOL!  Anyway, I think we may have had this quote before.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 01/16/22

Schlitze was born in Yucatan, Mexico in 1881. His real name was Simon Metz,  and his sister was also a pinhead.… | Human oddities, Creepy carnival,  Famous americans

Every library should try to be complete on something, if it were only the history of pinheads.”   —   Oliver W. Holmes Jr.

(I’m going to guess that he was referring to the sideshow geeks, and not the actual heads of pins!  My newspaper screwed up this Cryptoquote . . . too!  They’re supposed to be double spaced, so you can write in the correct letters easily.  But my paper decided to single space it.  Ugh!  Hopefully, they’ll get it right next Sunday.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Grace VanderWaal debuts risqué new look on TikTok

One can never pay in gratitude; one can only pay “in kind” somewhere else in life.”   —   Anne Morrow Lindbergh

(But that doesn’t mean one should not show gratitude.  It means that it has to more than platitudes.  We should all remember that one good deed deserves another.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Happy 18th Birthday to Grace VanderWaal!  She’s a local girl who made it big!

Thomas Edison, Charles Goodyear, and Elias Howe Jr. were patent trolls.

Results!  Why, man, I have gotten a lot of results.  I know several thousand things that won’t work.”   —   Thomas Edison

(Trial and error!  That’s how things get created/discovered, folks.  But observation also comes into play.  Observing other peoples failures first is probably a good starting point.  Especially when there is an element of danger, or even death, involved.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Happy birthday to Dave Grohl . . . inventor of the Monkey Wrench???  LOL!

Bruce Lee (Martial Artist and Actor) - On This Day

A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer.”   —   Bruce Lee

(Like . . . how not to ask foolish questions?  Or, that there sure are a lot of fools out there?  Yes, and just that many people think . . . differently.  The “foolish” question might persuade you into looking at something from an unconventional perspective.  And of course, a fool is much more than ignorant.  Even the wisest answer will not benefit them.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Dr. Robert Anthony - The Truly Amazing Blog

If you are honest because honesty is the best policy, then your honesty is corrupt.”   —   Dr. Robert Anthony

(I think that some people tend to overthink things.  If Bob was still alive I’d tell him to:  lighten up!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Happy birthday to Zack de la Rocha, of Rage Against The Machine!

What I Learned from Priming a Pump | Barbara Talley's Blog

The great art to learn much is to undertake a little at a time.”   —   John Locke

(Especially when you’re learning something that is brand new to you!  The human brain is capable of learning so much, but sometimes you have to prime the pump . . . to get things to flow.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
