(Tough) Cryptoquote Spoiler – 02/18/22

20+ Best Publilius Syrus Quotes, Thoughts and images in February 2022 -  PAGE 3 - Statustown

He is truly wise who gains wisdom from another’s mishaps.”   —   Publius Syrus

(Sure!  Half of learning and growing is realizing what NOT to do.  And, how do you do that, but by observing other’s mistakes.  I had a difficult time getting this one started.  No A, or I, or THE.  I toyed with ANOTHER’S being SHOULDN’T for a few seconds.  Figured the Z was the S, but still couldn’t get any traction, until I concluded the NZ was IS.  That got me to WISE and WISDOM, and then to WHO.  Very few E’s in the quote!  It turns out they got the author’s first name wrong.  It’s actually Publilius, and we’ve had him at least once before.  I didn’t realize this until I went to Google him.  But many manuscripts contain the erroneous spelling.  He was a Syrian slave, brought over to Rome, and eventually freed and educated.  I like the quote above too.  It surely applies to all the legalized sports gambling we’re now seeing.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
