Gustave Courbet's “The Desperate Man” Is the Ultimate Self-Portrait of the  Artist as Mad Genius - Artsy

The most dangerous creation of any society is the man who has nothing to lose.”   —   James Baldwin

(For a while they referred to that as “going postal”.  Then “terrorists”.  Now – at home – they call most of them “domestic terrorists”.  We can’t afford to keep on creating these desperate people.  Can’t we give them something to live for?  Be well and do well, friends.)   —   YUR

James Baldwin 1979 20/20 Interview Surfaced for the First Time - Why ABC  Buried James Baldwin Interview

It is certain, in any case, that ignorance, allied with power, is the most ferocious enemy justice can have.”   —   James Baldwin

(We all saw that – here in the US of A – between January 2017 to January 2021.  Some of us might not want to admit that, but I guess they’re entitled to their own “facts”.  Ooh!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Shakespeare Theatre Company| 2019/20 Season - Shakespeare Theatre Company

Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.”   —   James Baldwin

(We had this exact quote on January the 28th of this year!  Such a shame, because Mr. Baldwin is very quotable.  At least I didn’t realize it until after I had finished solving it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.”   —   James Baldwin

(More than offsets:  “Do as I say, not as I do”!  Kids definitely benefit from good role models.  We should all strive to be one.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Fires can’t be made with dead embers, nor can enthusiasm be stirred by spiritless men.”   —   James A. Baldwin

(This was a fairly challenging solve.  None of the words, nor the author’s name, really jumped out at me.  It wasn’t too hard to identify the E.  But, it was kind of a letter by letter solve.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

You don’t realize that you’re intelligent until it gets you into trouble.”   —   James Baldwin

(Being not as smart as you think you are is what really gets you into trouble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 07/22/10

Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.”   — James Arthur Baldwin

(This might be the best argument for why we need to put more love out in this world!  Smile, help out, or talk to a *stranger* today . . . and everyday going forward.  And, try to temper/belay those lingering animosities.  They don’t do anyone any good anyhow.)   — YUR

(Finally) Cryptoquote Spoiler – 05/13/10

Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.”   — James Baldwin

(I better get a newspaper tomorrow!)   — YUR
