Answer:  STEP ON IT

(Not bad.  No new clue words today.  But, three of the jumbles are new.  They’ve used “norgp” before.  Super answer letter layout.  Really great jumble.  The cartoon was super distracting for me!  I always try to do these Jumbles very systematically, but I was so tempted to look at the cartoon and clue/question, because of Jeff’s great Godzilla!  Lots of fun today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state with another, nothing more.”   —   Alexandre Dumas

(Duuuuuuuuuude!  That is just too middle of the road, ultra-objective . . . even for me.  Both of these “emotions” can be fairly extreme, with a lot of gray in between.  But, surely, there are very definitive times of happiness AND misery, where no comparison is necessary.  He must’ve either jaded, or a little too comfortably numb when he made this statement.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Sounds like the story of my life!  Although, what passes for education these days is kind of scary.  The government keeps pushing for more and more math and science, and completely ignoring the arts and humanities.  The math and sciences are well-suited to the more technical jobs, but the arts and humanities teach you how to think critically.  I can only deduce that the government desires a population incapable of critical thought.  They don’t want us – or not too many of us at least – questioning their policies and actions.  Question authority, people.  It’s the only way to hold them accountable.  This is supposed to be a “government of the people, for the people, by the people”.  We can’t let them take this from us.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Our friends interpret the world and ourselves to us, if we take them tenderly and truly.”   —   Amos Bronson Alcott

(Too tired to appreciate this quotation.  Was surprised to find that this is not the first Amos Bronson Alcott quote for these crypto-spoilers.  I did not recognize the name, but as I typed his name in the tags he came right up.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darkness of other people.”   —   Carl Jung

(The first step is in acknowledging that you have a darkness.  A good number of people are in denial about these kind of things.  We’re all a blend of dark and light, of good and bad.  No man is pure this or pure that.  When it comes to human nature, relative states are much more valid than absolutes.  Absolutes are for the childlike, obedient, simple minds.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
