Nonsense wakes up the brain cells.  And it helps develop a sense of humor, which is awfully important in this day and age.”   —   Theodor Geisel

(Dr. Seuss is lucky that he didn’t make it to today’s world of political “correctness” and zero tolerance.  Say something even mildly humorous these days and there is bound to be someone who will take offense.   For me, banning language is naive, short-sighted, and just plain lazy.  Open dialog requires the full use of language.  Even hurtful words can be used in intellectual discussions, as long as they are not hurled as epithets.  And, to all my uninitiated, myopic, and energy challenged readers . . . go suck an egg!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

You’re on your own, and you know what you know.  And you are the guy who’ll decide where to go.”   —  Dr. Seuss

Think left and think right and think low and think high.  Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!”   —   Dr. Seuss

(Rare) Cryptoquote Spoiler – 07/12/12

Don’t cry because it’s over; smile because it happened.”   —   Dr. Seuss

(Why “rare”?  Well, it was rare . . . for me.  It’s the first time I’ve ever solved a cryptoquote without having to write down a single letter.  Sorta like my MODEL-T-FORD Wheel of Fortune solve, back in the early ’80s!  The apostrophes, the semi-colon, and the fact that it ended with a period, and not a question mark, were the keys to the solve.  The placement of the “A”s in the puzzle told me that “YA’H” was IT’S, and because the quote ended in a period told me that “MVK’A” had to be DON’T, and not CAN’T or WON’T.  With the semi-colon, and the “V” being the O, I reasoned that “VFPI” was OVER.  DON’T  blank  blank IT’S OVER; then seeing  IT on the second line, following the repeated “UPOEGHP”, and the double letters in the last cipher, got me into the whole rhythm of the quote.  Because of inspirational emails, etc., this quote has become kind of an engraved cliché upon my psyche.  I’m not saying this is a once in a lifetime solve, and I bet that a certain amount of you may have seen it the way that I did.  But, I still consider this a rare solve.  As it stands, I’m still a legend in my own mind!  LOL!!!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Who wants to tell me which Dr. Seuss story this line comes from?  I could look it up, but I’d rather have one of you guys tell me!   —   YUR

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”   —   Dr. Seuss
