People demand freedom of speech to make up for the freedom of thought which they avoid.”   —   Soren Kierkegaard

(Pretty deep!  Too many people speak without thinking.  And, too many also think only what they’re told, and don’t really think for themselves.  That’s the trouble with indoctrination.  And propaganda.  We all love the idea of free will, but so much of what we think/believe has been ingrained in us, from birth . . . to today.  Tough for many to overcome.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The ego can be the great success inhibitor.  It can kill opportunities, and it can kill success.”   —   Dwayne Johnson

(I just knew, from early on in his wrestling career, as “The Rock”, that DJ was destined for bigger things.  He has a great combination of brains, looks and a great sense of humor.  Much more so than his fellow wrestlers.  Olivier, Guinness, McKellen, and Branagh probably don’t have anything to worry about, but Dwayne can more than hold his own when it comes to commanding the camera.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Never lend books; the only books in my library are books that other folk have lent me.”   —   Anatole France

(It is kind of rare for me to buy a book for myself.  Most of the books at my house have been “lent” to me.  I think it’s fairly rare for people to re-read books they’ve already read.  I know that some folk do, but there are just so many good books out there, and only so much time.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

He didn’t tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it.”   —   Clarence Budington Kelland

(I’m guessing this is a semi-subtle Father’s Day quote!  It sounds like he’s saying his dad led by example.  Definitely better than someone who doesn’t practice what he preaches.  This appears to be the first Kelland quote, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  I guessed correctly, as I Googled his name.  Welcome to the Cryptoquote Club, Clarence!  Be well and do good, friends.  And, Happy Father’s Day to all our dads . . . with us, or not!)   —   YUR

Normal is an illusion.  What is normal to the spider is chaos to the fly.”   —   Morticia Addams

(It’s fairly rare that we see a quote attributed to a character, as opposed to the author.  In this case, it would be Charles Addams.  It is a fantastic quote though!  So true.  I was a big fan of “The Addams Family” television show, back in the ’60s.  Much more erudite than “The Munsters”!  I had a small crush on Carolyn Jones.  The movies were well done too.  Anjelica Huston and Raul Julia captured the spirit of Carolyn Jones and John Astin’s signature roles very nicely.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

As long as they are well-intentioned, mistakes are not a matter for shame, but for learning.”   —   Margaret Heffernan

(Our first quote from Ms. Heffernan!  Welcome to the Cryptoquote Club!  Because of so many contradicting quotes, I really wish our more/overly cautious parents had stressed ideas like this, instead of the ones that stave off just going for it.  Mistakes are not failure.  There’s no shame in making the honest mistake.  They teach you to modify your approach.  Keep plugging!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies.”   —   Nelson Mandela

(Such a wise man.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
