Truth makes on the ocean of nature no one track of light; every eye, looking on, finds its own.”   —   Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton

(Yes.  Even as you are solving it you keep scratching your head, and think . . . WTF!  Well first off, the dude is a poet.  Second off, he’s British.  But, when you read it a few times, it begins to sink in.  Sure, Ed is a bit of a fancy pants.  But, he knoweth of what he speaketh!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

When people have no other tyrant, their own public opinion becomes one.”   —   Edward Bulwer-Lytton

(Something for the folks at FOX “News” to consider.  Although, they ARE just playing their part, as “bad cop” if you lean left, or “good cop” if you lean right.  Click on the pic above for more on the issue.  And, the Tea Party people too.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The true spirit of conversation consists of building on another man’s observation, not overturning it.”   —   Edward Bulwer-Lytton

(But, the conversation project also has to be a give-and-take collaboration between two parties.  When one side insists on doing all the hammering, the other side quickly develops a headache.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Love thou the rose, yet leave it on its stem.”   —   Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton

(The author’s name is nearly as long as the quotation!  Today’s solution was deceptively difficult.  We don’t get a whole lot of thous these days!  My very first impression was that the X was going to be E, but I wasn’t convinced that YNX was THE – because I wasn’t seeing THOU.  I was thinking it was either THIN or THIS, so I had the Es as Is for a while.  I like the ones that make you think!  Be well and do good, my friends.)   —   YUR
