See the Stars of Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Then & Now - E! Online

Life moves pretty fast.  If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”   —   “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”

(Good advice . . . from a hedonistic teenage slacker!  That being said, I’m a BIG fan of the movie!  It’s exceedingly funny, and a star-turning role for Matthew Broderick.  He’s had many other notable roles, but he will be forever remembered as Ferris Bueller.  Like I said to hal, I think we might be in for a series of movie quotes.  Change is good.  And that Mia Sara is a pretty little thing!  “Oh, yeah!”  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

What animals were the Ewoks modeled after? - Quora

You’ve failed, your highness.  I am a Jedi, like my father before me.”   —  “Return of the Jedi”

(WOW!  What an inspirational quote!  Truly life altering . . . NOT!  LOL!  I guess every now and then they throw in a totally irrelevant zinger, just to keep us on our toes.  I think that was the third of the original “Star Wars” movies, before they got cute, and came up with all the pre-quels and back story nonsense.  I gave up after the Jar Jar Binks fiasco, but I hear from some die-hards that the other films were much better.  My tolerance for “fantasy” has decreased over the years.  And I was never a fan of “Use the force, Luke!” to begin with.  It’s just a very thinly veiled: Have faith.  Don’t trust your eyes, or your own skills, just “use the force”.  Bleah!  Mystic nonsense!  The best thing about that movie was the Ewoks.  They were like bad-ass Teddy Bears!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS. Apologies for the erroneous Morgan Freeman birthday greetings the other day!  I thought that the Celebrity Cipher always used quotes from a celeb celebrating a birthday.  My bad.   —   YUR

Kanji Writing Practice Notebook "Dream" Kanji Asian Character: Write  Japanese Kanji Characters 8.5 x 11 Workbook With Writing Paper, 200 Pages  (Kanji Writing Practice Notebooks): ArtBookStudio, Kanji Notebook Series  by: 9781792162770: Books

It’s better to see something once than to hear about it a thousand times.”   —   Asian Proverb

(Not sure if I completely agree with this.  If it’s something pleasant, sure.  But if it’s the footage of the police beating/killing of Tyre Nichols, or the hammer attack on Paul Pelosi, I think I can do without watching.  Sudden graphic violence turns off people like me.  I remember when I first watched “Goodfellas”, I had to turn away when Joe Pesci was stabbing that guy in the trunk of the car.  I found it horrendous, and it left a bad taste in my mouth for the rest of the film.  Don’t get me wrong, I love the movie now.  It’s a modern classic.  But I was very happy that it lost out to “Dances With Wolves” that year.  “Asian proverb” is a pretty vague attribution, don’t you think?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Religion was invented when the first con man met the first fool." - Mark  Twain | Atheist quotes, Mark twain quotes, Atheist humor

Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience:  this is the ideal life.”   —   Mark Twain

(“Sleepy conscience” kind of threw me.  I had to look it up.  All it means is to chill.  Take it easy.  And to live and let live.  You don’t need to confront someone because they have a different idea, or opinion, of things.  You’ve heard people say never discuss religion or politics, right?  Those two things can very often start an argument, even amongst great friends.  Jonathan Swift once famously said: “You cannot reason someone out of something he or she was not reasoned into”.  Like they say:  Ya gots ta go along ta git along!  We’re just better off keeping somethings to ourselves.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Robert Frost | Poetry Foundation

You can’t get too much winter in the winter.”   —   Robert Frost

(I think that the folks in the Buffalo/Hamburg area of Western New York would beg to differ!  Five to six feet of snow, in one storm, is a bit of an overkill.  While down around the NYC area we really haven’t received any measurable snow.  Very strange for January the 26th!  I wonder if Robert Frost and Andy Rooney were related?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Earl Wilson - Trivia, Family, Bio | Famous Birthdays

A vacation is what you take when you can no longer take what you’ve been taking.”   —   Earl Wilson

(The guy could really turn a phrase!  He’s known for a number of famous quips, including:  “If you think nobody cares if you’re alive, try missing a couple of car payments.”  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Bob Marley Reggae Digital Art by Valentina Workman - Fine Art America

One good thing about music — when it hits you, you feel no pain.”   —   Bob Marley

(The man who brought Reggae music into the mainstream.  He paved the way for many other Jamaican musicians.  Such a shame that he was taken from this world, at the tender age of 36, due to cancer.  A very aggressive form of melanoma.  Only the good die young!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

13 Different Types of Jellyfish You Should Know

For whatever we lose (like a you or a me), it’s always our self we find in the sea.”   —   E.E. Cummings

(I’ve got no major issue with the sea.  Salt water is supposed to be good for soothing your body, and all that stuff.  Just don’t drink it!  Also, they say that the sea is unforgiving.  And she is in many ways.  She’s home to killer whales, stinging jellyfish, a variety of sharks and other fishies with teeth that bite.  She also has riptides and rip currents that can really mess you up, or even kill you.  So, if you’re smart, you will show the sea the respect that she deserves.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Introducing Anne Frank to a New Generation - WSJ

How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”   —   Anne Frank

(And today we get a message of hope and optimism!  I hope that the NY Giants win tonight, and the Buffalo Bills win tomorrow afternoon!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Nelson Mandela - Quotes, Spouse & Death - Biography

Lead from the back – and let others believe they are in front.”   —   Nelson Mandela

(It’s really great seeing all of the recent quotes from people of peace!  Gandhi is long gone.  King is gone.  And Mandela is gone too.  Thankfully, people like Malala Yousafzai, Greta Thunberg, Emma Gonzalez and David Hogg have picked up the mantle of civil rights, peace . . . and sanity.  Let’s not dismiss them as naive.  Life/the world can be a beautiful place, for all of us, but we all have to do our part.  Sometimes just not being an obstructionist is enough.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
