(Our old pal, Elbert!  Mr. Hubbard is right up there with Twain and Billings, as one of the Great American Quotesters of the late 19th/early 20th Century!  Be well . . . be brave and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Be pleasant until ten o’clock in the morning and the rest of the day will take care of itself.”   —   Elbert Hubbard

(Sounds reasonable.  I’m generally pretty pleasant anyway, but I’ll try to see if making a conscious effort makes a difference.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Do not take life too seriously.  You will never get out of it alive.”   —   Elbert Hubbard

(Very clever.  We haven’t had a Elbert Hubbard quote, here, in a while.  I haven’t heard this quote recently, but I’ve always enjoyed it.  Even if we live to 100, like George Burns did, eventually the grim reaper catches up to us all.  People care too much about their legacy, and how they’ll be remembered.  But, unless you become a major historical figure, chances are you’ll – essentially – be forgotten within two to three generations anyway!  Don’t become a total bum, but take it a little easier on yourself.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 05/02/10

The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.”   — Elbert Hubbard

(Marvelous quote, condensed by Nike into:  Just Do It! Elbert Hubbard and his wife Alice died when the Lusitania was sunk, by a German submarine, on May 7, 1915.  From a letter to their son, from one of the survivors, it appears that they made sure that they would go out together, because they went back into a stateroom and shut the door.  I would like to think that they were able to make love one last time.  At the very least they died in each others arms.) —   YUR
