Power is actualized only when word and deed have not parted company.”   —   Hannah Arendt

(Words alone can inspire, but combining them with actions gives them more meaning.  This cryptoquote was not a gimme.  It took me some work.  Ms. Arendt appears to be new to the Cryptoquote.  The quote in the painting translates to:  Nobody has the right to obey.  The use of the word “right” is a little odd, to me.  Right is more of a privilege.  Maybe obligation is a better word?  I think we all have the right to disobey, and at least question authority.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come.”   —   Anne Lamott

(Anne sound like my kinda woman!  I thought that she might be new to the Cryptoquote, but apparently we’ve had one of her quotes before.  I’m not sure when, but WordPress will probably link us to the earlier spoiler!  Keep trying to do the right thing, folks.  As always, be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

That includes you too, Antifa!  Heed the words of a great man.  Hate and confrontation just make matters worse.  Be well and do good, friends.   —   YUR

I’m more worried about being a good person than being the best football (soccer) player in the world.”   —   Lionel Messi

(Yeah.  I just had to be the ugly American, and went and called it “soccer”!  You can’t get away with having a quote like this during the NFL playoffs.  Not on my watch!  LOL!  Hey, Congrats to my “cousin” Toby, and all the other Vikings fans, on the miraculous last second, come from behind victory, over the Saints last night!  Stefon Diggs will go down in Vikings history, as their most memorable scorer.  The Vikings were Viktor-ious!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

It’s pretty hard to tell what brings happiness; poverty and wealth have both failed.”   —   Kin Hubbard

(I understand how some might think that wealth might make one happy, but who thinks there’s happiness in poverty?  It’s good that we’ve had Kin Hubbard before, because I struggled with the first name . . . again.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Reputation is often got without merit and lost without fault.”   —   English Proverb

(This is the first time we’ve had an English Proverb since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  This Cryptoquote took me a good amount of time to get started.  I considered both the Q and the S as the E, until I finally figured out the word OFTEN.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

It seems pointless to be quoted if one isn’t going to be quotable . . . it’s better to be quotable than to be honest.”   —   Tom Stoppard

(I think this must be a line said by a character in one of his plays.  It sounds kind of tongue-in-cheek to me.  Maybe, it has to do with choosing one’s words more carefully, because sometimes people can be too brutally honest.  But, is being quotable really better than being honest?  Does anyone know the particulars of this line???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
