Cryptoquote Solved – 06/24/22

The consummate curmudgeon at his summer house

The average dog is a nicer person than the average person.”   —   Andy Rooney

(I don’t think I could possibly get tired of this quote!  It is so true.  Andy Rooney was an “old man” my entire life.  It’s hard to even imagine him as a young man.  But I could almost always relate to him.  Like me, I don’t think he’d care for today’s level of “political correctness”.  What do they say about good intentions?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Meeting Marie Curie. The most underrated female scientist of… | by Fareeha  Arshad | Lessons from History | Medium

I was taught that the way of progress was neither swift nor easy.”   —   Marie Curie

(Yet an air of cooperation and unity has a way of speeding up the process of progress.  Obstructionists always result in regress.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Mark Plotkin - 2004 - Roy Chapman Andrews Society

The rainforests hold the answers to questions we have yet to ask.”   —   Mark Plotkin

(And, we’re like the disinterested teenagers thinking that Grampa doesn’t know what the heck he’s talking about!  If we’re not careful – and we haven’t been – then the rainforests will die – even before Grampa does – taking with them all the knowledge we’ll never get to benefit from!  It looks like this is the first quote from Dr. Plotkin at the Cryptoquote.  So, we welcome Mark to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

F. Scott Fitzgerald | National Portrait Gallery

I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”   —   F. Scott Fitzgerald

(I guess everyone has a favorite season, but I’m not onboard with Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald.  For me it’s spring.  Summer is kind of like the teenage years.  Lots of growth and sunshine, but mainly just hot and sweaty.  Spring is much more varied.  Not always pretty, but it’s refreshing, because that’s where life renews.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Q&A: Poet, writer and educator Warsan Shire |

No one leaves home unless home is the mouth of a shark.”   —   Warsan Shire

(This lovely young woman is a poet, a writer, an editor and a teacher.  She was born in Kenya to Somali parents, and it sounds like she is echoing the feelings of her parents.  For a long time it seemed like Somalia was locked in a never-ending civil war.  Likely a good reason for her parents leaving.  Apparently she is very popular, but of course I’d never heard of her, as I’m not into the poetry scene.  First time at the Cryptoquote!  So, we welcome her to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Prevost Photos

The heart of a father is the masterpiece of nature.”   —   Antoine Francois Prévost

(Since there’s no Cryptoquote on Sundays, we’re getting the Father’s Day one today!  Which is definitely cool by me.  The Celebrity Cipher was also related to Dad’s Day!  This looks to be our first quote from the French Priest and author, since I’ve been solving these.  So, we welcome Antoine Francis Prévost to the Cryptoquote Club today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Groucho Marx - The secret of life is honesty and fair...

If the garbage man calls, tell him we don’t want any.”   —   Groucho Marx

(Why would the garbage man ever call???  Strange quote, in my opinion.  But this was an easier solve, for me, than the Celebrity Cipher.  Today’s utilized numbers, and I wasn’t sure if they were in code, or not.  I finally had to resort to the clue that they provide.  I hate doing that!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

James Joyce Age, Height, Net Worth, Books, Quotes, Bio

Beware the horns of a bull, the heels of the horse, and the smile of an Englishman.”   —   James Joyce

(The Irish – especially – have had a long and storied history of antagonism with the English.  No one cares being under another’s  boot.  Happy Birthday to my dearly departed father!  He’d be 88 today.  Love you, Dad!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cody Schultz — Studying The Masters: Ansel Adams

A good photograph is knowing where to stand.”   —   Ansel Adams

(Now THAT  ^^^^^ is knowing where to stand!  Kinda like the old acting advice:  just hit your marks and deliver your lines.  Spencer Tracy put it this way: “Know your lines and don’t bump into the furniture.”  All the pros just emphasize the basics.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Flag Day │ American Legion, Peter J Courcy Post 178

A thoughtful mind, when it sees a nation’s flag, sees not the flag only, but the nation itself.”   —   Henry Ward Beecher

(And, because everything under the sun seems to have a national holiday these days, it is also National Bourbon Day!  Well, bourbon is known as America’s “Native Spirit”.  Just hold off on pouring yourself one until it’s 5 PM . . . where you are!  None of that “It’s 5 o’clock somewhere!”  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
