An angel’s arm can’t snatch me from the grave; legions of angels can’t confine me there.”   —   Edward Young

(Our first Edward Young quote!  Anybody up on their early 18th Century poetry?  This is a line from his Night-Thoughts, but I can’t tell if he’s talking about actual death, or dreams, or . . .  This cryptoquote took me a while to get.  “AN” and “ME” are not all that common.  Starting with three words beginning with A was also a little unusual.  I don’t know what I would have done if I didn’t spot “the” and “there”.  I really had to go letter by letter with this one.  Great challenge.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
