Cryptoquote Spoiler – 02/15/19

Life is a quest and love a quarrel.  Here is a place for me to lie.”   —   Edna St. Vincent Millay

(I don’t get where she’s going with this.  Somebody please ‘splain it to me.  Be well and do good friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 02/14/19

Love is anterior to life, posterior to death, initial of creation, and the exponent of earth.”   —   Emily Dickinson

(My brain hurts!  She makes love sound like a math equation!  No wonder love can be so confusing!  Just kidding, folks.  Love is an eternal force of the universe.  Don’t try to fight it.  Accept it.  Embrace it.  Harness it and champion it, for the good of mankind and the world.  Happy Valentine’s Day, friends!  Be well and do good.)   —   YUR

PS.  Some online sites have the last word of this quotation as “breath”.  Why?  I know not.  I like it better with “earth”.   —   YUR

What I hear when I’m being yelled at is people caring really loudly at me.”   —   Leslie Knope

(This line is both humorous and sage.  If you don’t really care about the person . . . why bother yelling at them?  Amy Poehler has been making me laugh for years!  She is just so smart and talented.  I kind of avoid most sitcoms, but I recently saw an episode of “Parks and Recreation” on Comedy Central, and I laughed my butt off!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 02/12/19

If only one could tell true love from false love, as one can tell mushrooms from toadstools.”   —   Katherine Mansfield

(I fail on both accounts.  Don’t rely on me when foraging in the woods.  It has been quite some time since we’ve had a quote from this lovely writer of short stories, who died far too young.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 02/11/19

Speak when you are angry – and you’ll make the best speech you’ll ever regret.”   —   Source Obscure

(A clever quip, from our fuzzy friend.  It’s always better to choose your words wisely and carefully.  And, that is so hard to do when you’re seeing red.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 02/10/19

The road to ruin is always kept in good repair, and travelers pay the expense of it.”   —   Josh Billings

(Josh deserves to be better remembered.  He was the folksy American humorist before anybody even heard of Mark Twain.  Not saying he was better.  Just saying he was good.  How true is today’s quote???  Be well and do good, friends.  Stay off that road!)   —   YUR

Your mind will answer most questions if you learn to relax and wait for the answer.”   —   W. S. Burroughs

(This guy doesn’t look much like an optimist, to me.  But, I guess you’d have to be, if you believed this to be true.  This appears to be the first William S. Burroughs quote to be used in the Cryptoquote, since I’ve been posting the spoilers.  So, let’s welcome William to the Cryptoquote Club!  Hi, Bill!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
