Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/25/18

There are no secrets to success.  It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.”   —   Colin Powell

(I had a lot more respect for the man prior to February 5th, 2003, when he – essentially – lied to the U.N. Security Council.  The so-called satellite photo “evidence” of Saddam’s “Weapons of Mass Destruction” were grainy, 1960’s era – Cuban Missile Crisis – “quality”.  Our satellite capabilities in 2002 and 2003 were far superior to what he presented as “proof”.  And, that’s not even the half of it.  The man was much too smart to have been duped into doing this, so he must have been complicit in the deception that resulted in an illegal invasion and lengthy occupation of a sovereign nation, that resulted in so much death all around, and blew up our National Debt.  How soon we forget.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

If you are going to achieve excellence in big things, you develop the habit in little matters.  Excellence is not an exception, it is a prevailing attitude.”   —   Colin Powell

(I thought maybe we had seen a Colin Powell quote before, but his name did not come up in my Tags.  Either I forgot to do so, or this is the first quote from him, since I’ve been posting the spoilers.  It’s a great quote.  We all should strive to do our best, in all we do.  Not everyone will notice it in the small things, but you’ll know.  This attitude will carry over to your bigger functions.  Be well . . . do your best, and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
