There is something about a closet that makes a skeleton terribly restless.”   —   Source Unknown

(If I had to guess, I’d say this sounds like something Oscar Wilde might have said.  But then again, it could’ve been Erma Bombeck, or Art Buchwald.  Someone with a good sense of humor.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

In the case of many poets, the most important thing for them to do is to write as little as possible.”   —   T. S. Eliot

(Who better qualified to make such a statement?  I’ve never had the patience for long poems.  I prefer haikus . . . and limericks.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

We shall not grow wiser before we learn that much that we have done was very foolish.”   —   Friedrich Hayek

(A good example is those who have – finally – come around to the reality of Climate Change, due to man made Global Warming!  Of course there are still some deniers, but their ranks are thinning.  Well, there are also some people who still believe the earth is flat!  So, what are you gonna do?  We welcome Friedrich to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.  Happy Summer Solstice!)   —   YUR

My problem lies in reconciling my gross habits with my net income.”   —   Errol Flynn

(I had a heck of a time getting this one started!  I tried for BLESS, CLASS, GRASS, SMALL and THREE, with no luck.  GROSS was the last word I would have thought of.  And, with the author’s first name I tried ALLEN and WOODY.  I even considered ALLEY.  I toyed – for a minute – with the last name being SCOTT.  My only instincts that really helped me was making the N’s into I’s, and O’s into N’s, and then the Y’s into E’s.  Switching my A’s – for the Z’s – to O’s was also a big help.  When I finally saw it was Errol Flynn I felt like such a dope!  This quote is hilarious.  Errol was quite the clever, handsome devil.  I remember a television movie about his life, called “My Wicked, Wicked Ways”, in the 80s.  It was his autobiography.  Too long ago to remember if it was any good.  He definitely loved to party, and he loved the ladies though!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

At the timberline where the storms strike with the most fury, the sturdiest trees are found.”   —   Anonymous

(Even with all the THEs, and other E’s, this one took some time to solve.  Neither “timberline”, nor “sturdiest”, come up in quotes very often.  It’s been quite a while since we’ve had an Anonymous too.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Knowledge is power.  Information is liberating.”   —   Kofi Annan

(Sadly, the former Secretary-General of the United Nations passed away almost a year ago.  He was a highly respected diplomat.  His name was instrumental in my solving today’s cryptoquote.  We welcome him to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Like a true Italian, Mom valued beautification in every area of her life, and I try to do the same.”   —   Rachael Ray

(Wow.  A “mom” quote the day after totally ignoring Father’s Day!  It sure looks like somebody has either daddy issues, or a more general misandry problem.  That’s too bad.  This is no reflection on Rachael Ray, or her lovely quote though.  This appears to be her first quote here since I’ve been posting these spoilers, so we welcome Rachael to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
