Gilmore: 'Coretta Scott-King's efforts to immortalize her husband's legacy'  | The Atlanta Voice

Hate is too great a burden to bear.  It injures the hater more than it injures the hated.”   —   Coretta Scott King

(So nice to finally see a quote from the wife of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.!  Coretta was also a civil rights activist, who carried on her husband’s work, following his assassination, for the rest of her life.  We welcome Coretta Scott King to the Cryptoquote Club today.  Treat others as you would have them treat you, folks.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

It is sheer madness to live in want in order to be wealthy when you die.”   —   Juvenal

(I couldn’t agree more!  Except, most of us don’t know when we’re going to die, and we simply don’t want to starve to death, or die destitute.  So, we can’t afford to be foolhardy.  Like most things in life, moderation is the key.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Justice Thurgood Marshall – Thurgood Marshall College Fund

In recognizing the humanity of our fellow beings, we pay ourselves the highest tribute.”   —   Thurgood Marshall

(And, therein lies the problem with too many people, to this day.  Through bias and ignorance, they don’t recognize the humanity in those who don’t look . . . just like them.  They see others as somehow inferior.  This is both sad and dangerous, for all of us.  For years I thought that we – as a nation – were making pretty good progress in race relations, but there was always that undercurrent of hatred mixed with fear.  It started coming back to the surface with the election of Barack Obama, from those whose bias/hatred didn’t like seeing a Black man sitting in the White House.  Things got much much worse with the election of a man whose primary campaign tactic, and now “leadership” strategy, was/is in appealing to the small-minded and uncharitable, by raising irrational doubts and fears.  We need to ignore and replace this man, and remember the words of one of our Founding Fathers, John Dickinson:  “Then join hand in hand, brave Americans all!  By uniting we stand, by dividing we fall.” 

This appears to be the very first quote from our country’s very first African-American Supreme Court justice, Thurgood Marshall.  It’s about time, don’t you think?  Welcome to the Cryptoquote Club, sir.  Be well and do good, friends.  And, reject racial bigotry.)   —   YUR

Chinese Proverbs: The Wisdom of Cheng-Yu (Chinese Bound Classics): Trapp,  James: 9781782747239: Amazon.com: Books

Great souls have wills; feeble ones have only wishes.”   —   Chinese Proverb

(I guess there has to be a lot of middle ground between great and feeble.  Thankfully.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Churchill and the Presidents: Woodrow Wilson - The Churchill Project - Hillsdale College

We cannot be separated in interest or divided in purpose.  We stand together until the end.”   —   Woodrow Wilson

(Likely uttered upon the U.S. entering World War I.  Wilson had initially wanted the U.S. to remain neutral.  But, when he learned that Germany was trying to entice Mexico to to join them and attack us, and German submarines were now targeting American shipping, he realized that neutrality was no longer feasible.  Nowadays, he is being castigated for his “racist” ideology.  But, it’s yet another example of our holier than thou mentality of not understanding that much of the world was simply not as enlightened as we are today.  He actually did a great deal of good for our country, and should be remembered more for that.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Robert Southey, Commoner (1792), Poet Laureate (1813) | Art UK

How little do they see what really is, who frame their hasty judgment upon that which seems.”   —   Robert Southey

(It’s like I always tell you folks.  You have to learn to read between the lines.  It may take more than a little effort, because the news and information we are being fed – on a daily basis – is very carefully framed.  They completely ignore things that they don’t want us to know, and meticulously shape what they do want us to *know*.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

How The New Retirement Age Could Affect Your Employees | Blog.SHRM.org

A man is known by the company that keeps him on after retirement age.”   —   Source Obscure

(That only works today if you own the company!  LOL!  I suppose there are some companies out there who value some of their elderly employees, but they are in the minority.  I have known some folks who retired, and their company re-hired them as consultants, often at a premium.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Women who believe in each other create armies that will win kingdoms and wars.”   —   Nikita Gill

(A rising star in the world of poetry.  And apparently, very popular on Instagram.  And, now she has joined the Cryptoquote Club!  I’m sure we’ll be seeing more of her.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

theodore-teddy-roosevelt-1a1 - Frederic Donner Books

Freedom from effort in the present merely means that there has been effort stored up in the past.”   —   Theodore Roosevelt

(Teddy was a straight talker, but he was far from crass, unlike some President that we know.  He also had vision, and a very strong sense of what was fair and just.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Frasi di Friedrich Schiller

The jest loses its point when he who makes it is the first to laugh.”   —   Johann Friedrich von Schiller

(Some comedians laugh at their jokes all the time.  It’s almost as if they feel they have to cue their audience.  While others deliver their quips with classic deadpan.  The best at deadpan humor was/is Steven Wright!  His jokes were never obvious.  You had to think to get them.  And, he had the patience to wait for you to get them.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
