The successful people are those who can think up things for the rest of the world to keep busy at.”   —   Don Marquis

(This guy, Marquis, was quite clever!  We haven’t had one of his quotes in quite a while, and I – for one – would like to see more of them.  The quote actually uses all but four letters, when including the author name.  But, until I wrote out the near-remaining eight letters I didn’t know the last name of the author, OR the word “busy”!  The blankUSblank was completely foreign to me, until I got to those eight letters!  But, getting “busy” made getting his last name much easier.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(I’ll settle for that.  It’s better than thinking that in a week or two I’m going to be dead!  Be well, stay positive, and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
