The wonder of a single snowflake outweighs the wisdom of a million meteorologists.”   —   Francis Bacon

(Take that, Lonnie Quinn!  LOL!!!  This wasn’t an easy solve, people.  I suspected the FGS was THE, but couldn’t commit to it until I figured out the author’s first name was most likely Francis.  Not that one really has anything to do with the other, but it helped me confirm that the H was the A and the V was the I.  “Francis” helped me figure out SINGLE too.  Before that, for a little while I was thinking MILLION might be FOLLOWS, but I knew the U couldn’t be the W, and the C was unlikely to be F.  But, METEOROLOGIST was the last word I was thinking of, until things started coming together.  Even with THE and A, I thought this was a challenging puzzle.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Suspicions amongst thoughts are like bats amongst birds, they ever fly by twilight.”   —   Francis Bacon

(Mmm!  Bacon!!  This was a tough one to get started.  No “A” or “I”, and not a lot of “e”s.  Also, there were no double-letter words.  But, we got it.  Didn’t we?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
