One should aim not at being possible to understand, but at being impossible to misunderstand.”   —   Quintilian

(Because misunderstanding something can be so much easier, yet – ultimately – so much more dangerous!  It might take more time to really understand something, but it beats the consequences of misunderstanding it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The learned understand the reason of the art, the unlearned feel the pleasure.”   —   Quitilian

(That is if they like it!  Otherwise the unlearned both don’t get it and are not pleased!  And, I’m sure the learned can also feel the pleasure.  Otherwise, what would be the point of being learned?  I had some trouble getting this one.  I got the T, E, A and Hs right away, but then I stated questioning myself some.  I strongly suspected ART, but didn’t commit to it for quite a while.  I got distracted by other activities, yesterday, and did get back to finishing this until this AM.  Sorry for the delay.  Stay tuned for the Monday Spoiler!)   —   YUR
