I have received no more than one or two letters in my life that were worth the postage.”   —   Henry David Thoreau

(After he published this, Hank and I ceased being Pen Pals!  Arrogant little pr . . . !  You might be wondering why we’re seeing another HDT quote so soon after the last one.  It seems that Rebecca is contractually obligated to run a certain number of each of the big quotesters each year.  She fell short of HDT quotes last year, and she just wanted to get him out of the way.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Books can only reveal us to ourselves, and as often as they do us this service we lay them aside.”   —   Henry David Thoreau

(Been a while since we’ve seen a quote from Hank!  I stayed away from the author, so this was a fairly challenging solve.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.”   —   Henry David Thoreau

(Kind of an industrious sounding quote, coming from a guy who sort of dropped out and espoused simple living.  Yes, Roy.  We are seeing a good amount of “success” quotes lately.  Any cryptogram for “success” is pretty easy to spot, and makes the solving go so much faster.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

No man ever followed his genius till it misled him.”   —   Henry David Thoreau

(Thoreau was always a go your own way kind of guy, but this phrasing is kinda out there.  Maybe he was hanging out with Zonker Harris when he wrote this down!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

In a world of peace and love, music would be the universal language.”   —   Henry David Thoreau

(It kind of is anyway.  Hopefully, that means there is more peace and love in this world than most of us might think.  Let’s strive to make it so.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

What is commonly called friendship is only a little more than honor among rogues.”   —   Henry David Thoreau

(Which is probably why he was more than somewhat of a recluse!  There can be times when this is true, but it’s not exactly the healthiest of attitudes.  Be well and do well, friends.)   —   YUR

If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.”      Henry David Thoreau

(Some hear Gene Krupa, some hear Buddy Rich, some hear Ginger Baker.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
