Robert M. Hensel (@wheelierecord) | Twitter

No disability or dictionary out there is capable of clearly defining who we are as a person.”   —   Robert M. Hensel

(This guy is no “Woe is me!” kinda guy.  He hasn’t let his “disability” define him whatsoever.  He is showing the world what can be done with the right attitude.  I couldn’t decide if the F was J,K or M, so I had to Google him.  This is – hopefully – the first of many quotes from Robert, as we welcome him to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The one sure way to conciliate a tiger is to allow oneself to be devoured.”   —   Konrad Adnenauer

(I’m sure that works out very well . . . for the tiger.  I was thinking “conciliate”, but I’d already used the C!  Then, I realized my Kraut heritage, and change Conrad to Konrad.  That freed up the C!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
