You cannot be a leader, and ask people to follow you, unless you know how to follow, too.”   —   Sam Rayburn

(I thought we’d had a Sam Rayburn quote before, but apparently not!  We welcome the one time, long time Speaker of the House of Representatives to the Cryptoquote Club today.  There were some tells in today’s puzzle.  I first picked up on “unless”, which took me to “follow”, then “cannot” and “you”, then “people”.  Fun solve.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Ambition is but avarice on stilts, and masked.”   —   Walter Savage Landor

Image result for how you see yourself

Middle age is when a person your own age looks much older than you think you look.”   —   Author Unknown

(Ooh!  Ooh!  That means I’m still middle aged!  I think the majority of people my age look older than me.  Maybe, I’m fooling myself?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I decided I can’t pay a person to rewind time, so I may as well get over it.”   —   Serena Williams

When some men discharge an obligation, you can hear the report for miles around.”   —   Mark Twain

(Oh boy!  Good ol’ Samuel would not be a fan of many of today’s athletes!  Some guys celebrate the smallest gain/stop/block/point, etc., etc. as though they’ve just won the championship.  Dude, or dudette, you just did your friggin’ job.  Acting like a clown is just disrespectful to your opponent, and makes you look like an ass.  Show some class.  Be a good sport.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

If the bee bites you once, it’s the bee’s fault.  If the bee bites you twice, it’s your fault.”   —   Source Obscure

(Kinda like Fool me once, shame on you.  Fool me twice, shame on me.  We need to try to learn from our mistakes, so we don’t repeat them.  Be well – be wary – and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

We may give without loving, but we cannot love without giving.”   —   Bernard Meltzer

(This was another tough one for me to get started.  No words ended in E, and there were no single letter words to help me out.  I went with the numbers game and saw that both X and Q were the leaders with 7 apiece.  This helped me to see CANNOT.  From there it all kinda fell into place.  Don’t think that Meltzer was referring to material things.  Giving your time, your attention and affection, and your guidance and advice, are more valuable than throwing money and expensive gifts at a loved one.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

P.S.  Happy Rosh Hashanah to all my Jewish readers!  Happy New Year!   —   YUR
