Why I Don't Read Rebecca Solnit | The Walrus

The ability to tell your own story, in words or images, is already a victory, already a revolt.”   —   Rebecca Solnit

(Alrighty then.  That’s what we like to see.  Our Rebecca is featuring a new Rebecca for us.  It’s always refreshing to pump new blood into these cryptograms.  We welcome Ms. Solnit to the Cryptoquote Club today.  Hopefully, we’ll be seeing more of her work.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Noël Coward - Wikipedia

Wit ought to be a glorious treat, like caviar; never spread it about like marmalade.”   —   Noel Coward

(For a whole lot of people, the impoverished and the diabetics to name a few, marmalade is a tremendous treat!  I’ve always thought that caviar was like the comestible version of “The Emperor’s New Clothes”.  Everyone pretends to be so impressed with it, in this case so they can appear to be sophisticated.  Blech!  I know that’s not the point of the quote, but if you want to see that, look up the Cryptoquote Spoiler of 10/23/19, because this is yet another re-run.  I hope everything is alright with our Rebecca!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Rough Collie - zooplus Magazine

Grandchildren don’t make a man feel old; it’s the knowledge that he’s married to a grandmother.”   —   G. Norman Collie

(Will somebody please get this man a Wikipedia listing!  We’ve seen him before.  As a matter of fact we’ve seen this exact quote before!  Not all that long ago, on April 21, 2020.  I still like the quote, but a little variety would be nice.  Since there is no photo of the man, I give you this classic pup, forever known to me as a Dundee dog!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Audre Lorde: poems, essays, and short stories | Poeticous

Nothing I accept about myself can be used against me to diminish me.”   —   Audre Lorde

(In an exceedingly judgmental society this is an important attitude for self-preservation.  If they ever do a biography of Audre, I think that Nancy Giles could play her.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Show Me One Jew - Benjamin Disraeli

Seeing much, suffering much, and studying much are the three pillars of learning.”   —   Benjamin Disraeli

(All that I could add to this is that when it comes to learning I usually enjoy much!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Napoleon 2.0, Pensive | museum of wtf

I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand as in what direction we are moving.”   —   O.W. Holmes

(And, finishing up the third quarter of 2020, that is kind of a scary thought.  With the threat of a re-emergence of COVID-19, the rise of these right wing “militias”, our President resurrecting the racist call for “Law and Order” of the late 1960s, and our Attorney General saying that a Biden victory could only happen if the election were “rigged”, and threatening martial law, is right out of Orwell’s “1984”.  How could Barr possibly say something so stupid?  Has he not seen the poll numbers?  Most of the voters are unhappy with the way the current President has been ruining . . . running the country.  And, speaking of George Orwell, does this description of “Animal Farm’s” Napoleon sound like anyone we know?  He is described as “a large, rather fierce-looking Berkshire boar” who is “not much of a talker” and has “a reputation for getting his own way”.  – – – Wikipedia  And, now we’ve even lost Ruth Bader Ginsburg!  With the same Senate that refused to hold a hearing, or vote, on Merrick Garland’s nomination to the Supreme Court in 2016, for nearly eight months, they now want to rush whoever Trump nominates for the opening before the election this November.  The only direction I am currently seeing us heading is known as backwards!  Our best hope is that our military will not heed Trump’s – potential – call for martial law, and they will uphold the election results.  Only then will we return to a forward direction.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Stevie Wonder has ninth child on the way

Just because a man lacks the use of his eyes doesn’t mean he lacks vision.”   —   Stevie Wonder

(Maybe, it’s because of the imperfection that he – and others like him – became a person of vision.  For me, it would never be a fair trade off.  I would hate to lose any of my senses.  I’m not that brave.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Amazon.com: Ludwig Van Beethoven Composer Print PosterMusic should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.”   —   Ludwig van Beethoven

(I guess Ludwig was a little on the macho side.  Beautiful music can bring tears to my eyes.  This appears to be our first Beethoven quote at the Cryptoquote.  So, we finally welcome the master composer to the Cryptoquote Club today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

South Carolina football: Lou Holtz recalls Hurricane Dennis | Charlotte  Observer

The man who complains about the way the ball bounces is likely the one who dropped it.”   —   Lou Holtz

(Appropriate football quote for the first Sunday of the 2020 NFL season.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Mike Newton Artist—Voltaire 1694-1778

One merit of poetry few persons will deny:  it says more, and in fewer words than prose.”   —   Voltaire

(Yeah, sure.  If you have a magic decoder ring.  For me, most poetry is an inside joke.  And, I’m always looking in from the outside.  But, at least with today’s Jumble and Cryptoquote we hit FEW, FEWER, and FEWEST.  That’s gotta count . . . for absolutely nothing!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
