Cryptoquote Solved – 09/07/22

I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou - Audiobook - Audible.com:  English

A bird does not sing because it has an answer; it sings because it has a song.”   —   Maya Angelou

(Maybe . . . the song is the answer?  If it pleases you there’s no need to ask any more questions.  We saw Maya the other day in the Celebrity Cipher, quoting Margaret Mead.  And, it was neither one’s birthday!  A little strange.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Over 20,000 People Want to Rename the High School Maya Angelou  Attended—After Her | Glamour

When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.”   —   Maya Angelou

(Strange quote.  I don’t think I agree with this.  But this made for a very quick solve.  The E was easy to spot, and the author’s name kind of jumped out at me.  Not so much with today’s Celebrity Cipher!  The quote wasn’t tough, but I’d never heard of the celebrity before.  An Italian actress who was Anthony Bourdain’s girlfriend.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

A collection of Maya Angelou's quotes and poetry

You are the sum total of everything you’ve ever seen, heard, eaten, smelled, been told, forgot – it’s all there.”   —   Maya Angelou

(I think with me lately it’s mostly FORGOT.  I’m not the kid that I used to be.  What are ya goin’ to do?  Although, I did solve this puzzle very quickly.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Deepak Chopra Quote: “The small things you do everyday- smiling at a  stranger or paying someone a compliment -bring you closer to your  spiritu...”

Everything influences each of us, and because of that I try to make sure that my experiences are positive.”   —   Maya Angelou

(Don’t look past or through people.  Make eye contact.  Give them the “S’up?” nod.  Smile at them.  Even with a mask on people can see it in your eyes, when you smile.  Pass on your positivity, and it will come back to you.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Maya Angelou, poet and author, dies at 86 - CBS News

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”   —   Maya Angelou

(I guess it all kinda depends on what type of story you’re bearing/hiding.  It’s been a month, or so, since we’ve had a Maya Angelou quote.  Good to see her again.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The thing to do, it seems to me, is to prepare yourself so you can be a rainbow in somebody else’s cloud.”   —   Maya Angelou

(With some people, no preparation is necessary.  They’re naturally cheery, and pierce many people’s clouds.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Never make someone a priority when all you are to them is an option.”   —   Maya Angelou

(Mostly common sense, but it’s also part of human nature for one partner to be a little more . . . devoted than the other.  Sure, it should be a two way street, but the traffic is usually a little slower going one way.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you.”   —   Maya Angelou

If you find it in your heart to care for somebody else, you will have succeeded.”   —   Maya Angelou

(Kind of a strange coincidence that today’s Jumble and Cryptoquote deal with the word “heart”.  But, maybe they should try going with M. Angelou, from time to time.  I’d kind of settled on the S being the E, but when I saw the author’s name layout I knew instantly that it was Ms. Angelou.  Took away all the fun, for me.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Pick up the battle and make it a better world just where you are.  It can be better, but it’s up to us.”   —   Maya Angelou

(Kind of a spin on:  “Think globally, act locally”.  Don’t think that you’re too small and unimportant to make a difference.  All of our collective actions can better the world.  So, keep doing good, folks!)   —   YUR
