A cloudy day or a little sunshine have as great an influence on many constitutions as the most real blessings or fortunes.”   —   Joseph Addison

(Hmm.  Shouldn’t it be HAS, instead of HAVE?  OR is not a collective, like AND, so “cloudy day” and “a little sunshine” would be singular, right?  I HAVE, you HAVE and they HAVE, but he, she and it HAS.  Right?  It’s a nice long quote, that took some work to solve.  And, there is truth to it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

It is good to have an end to journey toward, but it is the journey that matters.”   —   Ursula K. Le Guin

(Yet another sentiment that is . . . oft expressed!  LOL!  Even though we’ve had a quotation from her in the past I could not come up with her middle initial.  She’s known . . . just not by yer Uncle!  I’m giving you the Ursula I know.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 08/12/18

Many ideas grow better when transplanted into another mind than in the one where they sprang up.”   —   Oliver Wendell Holmes

(A lot of the great inventors kind of stole other people’s ideas, and made them into realities.  Others bought them – dirt cheap usually – and made great things by modifying them some, and then marketing them better than the person who actually came up with the idea ever could have.  And a lot of companies claim that any employee’s ideas are the company’s intellectual property, if they came up with them while employed there.  Life is not always fair, but that just seems to be the way of the world.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Hard work without talent is a shame, but talent without hard work is a tragedy.”   —   Robert Half

(If he had heeded his own words . . . would he have been Robert Whole?  We will never know.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
