Do the best you can until you know better.  Then when you know better, do better.”   —   Maya Angelou

(Maya Angelou has worked her way up to being a major player in the Cryptoquote world!  Mark Twain is #1, and Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson and Abraham Lincoln seem to be tied for #2.  Maya is right up there with George Bernard Shaw and Albert Einstein!  I’m not THE biggest Maya Angelou fan, but I dig her positivity!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

For a change, start by speaking to people rather than walking by them like they’re stones that don’t matter.”   —   Maya Angelou

(Yeah, baby!  At a bare minimum give them a quick:  S’up?  All most people really want is some kind of acknowledgement that you’re not just walking past a stone.  If you’re not just passing by, listen for an answer.  And, smile.  Make someone’s day.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I’m convinced of this:  Good done anywhere is good done everywhere.”   —   Maya Angelou

(But, I think we all need to do as much good as possible.  If only to offset the bad that too many unhappy, negative people do.  So, as usual, be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

As long as you’re breathing, it’s never too late to do some good.”   —   Maya Angelou

(Another gem, from the ambassador of positivity!  I think it’s kind of like the saying:  it takes more muscles to frown than it does to smile.  I’m not sure how true this is, but smiling and doing good go hand in hand together, and are such simple acts, so why not!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.”   —   Maya Angelou

(This one was a little tough getting started.  The author’s name was a big help again.  Do you think there is some significance in there being no letter I in this quote?  After all, there is no “I” in team, as the saying goes.  I like the quote’s collective tone!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

No matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life goes on, and it will be better tomorrow.”   —   Maya Angelou

(As long as there has been a stay of execution . . . then yes!  If not, then you better prepare for that bumpy ride.  Fortunately, most of us are not on death row, although far too many people are.  I always admired Illinois Governor George Ryan, for taking the bold step of clearing Illinois’ death row, by commuting the death sentences of 167 condemned inmates.  Very brave of him to act on his conscience.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!”   —   Maya Angelou

Thanks to the Veterans.

(She must have written this before the political correctness of all thespians being referred to as “actors”.  All of our veterans, men and women alike, deserve all of our appreciation, on a daily basis.  But, today is reserved as the day to celebrate that appreciation.  Politics and leaders create the messes we call wars.  Our military personnel are tasked with the unpleasant and dangerous job of cleaning up those messes.  Regardless of what some may claim, we all support our troops!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
