Cryptoquote Solved – 01/27/23

Religion was invented when the first con man met the first fool." - Mark  Twain | Atheist quotes, Mark twain quotes, Atheist humor

Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience:  this is the ideal life.”   —   Mark Twain

(“Sleepy conscience” kind of threw me.  I had to look it up.  All it means is to chill.  Take it easy.  And to live and let live.  You don’t need to confront someone because they have a different idea, or opinion, of things.  You’ve heard people say never discuss religion or politics, right?  Those two things can very often start an argument, even amongst great friends.  Jonathan Swift once famously said: “You cannot reason someone out of something he or she was not reasoned into”.  Like they say:  Ya gots ta go along ta git along!  We’re just better off keeping somethings to ourselves.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Age is an issue of mind over matter.  If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”   —   Mark Twain

(Maybe his best known, and oft borrowed/repeated quote!  WordPress used to kind of rank the most often used Tags – which for me are largely quote sources – by giving them a larger font.  I miss those days.  But most – American – cryptogram solvers know that Mark Twain is right up there with William Shakespeare as most quote worthy.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

What would Mark Twain think of Steven Crowder? - Quora

When a man loves cats, I am his friend and comrade, without further introduction.   —   Mark Twain

(Didja hear that, Republican wing-nuts?  Mark Twain had “comrades”!  He musta been one o’ those Pinko-Commies!  Clearly, we must ban ALL of his books from our schools, so our children can’t be groomed into Socialism!  😉😉😁  The quote in the graphic is for the folks who believe the 2020 Presidential election was “stolen”, and Global Warming is a “liberal hoax”.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Mark Twain - HISTORY

Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.”   —   Mark Twain

(So be kind, folks!  Just like the old expression about catching more flies with honey, than with vinegar.  It just gets better results.  Besides . . . mean people suck!  Another one of today’s coincidences; as I was getting ready to write this post something from Operation Kindness popped up on my Facebook feed!  Apparently, November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month!  So, if you need a little company consider adopting a dog or cat that is five years old, or older.  They are ready made for loving!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
