Big jobs usually go to the men who prove their ability to outgrow small ones.”   —   Ralph Emerson

(This was a tough solve for me.  Even after figuring out USUALLY it still took me some time.  Nice job dropping Waldo from the author’s name!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(I thought this was an excellent Jumble.  A true stinky pun!  I would’ve loved to have posted the spoiler on Friday, if I wasn’t in such a rush to get on the road.  And, I understand that some of you had some trouble in solving it?

All of the clue words were familiar old friends.  However, all of the jumbles came up as new.  For some reason I had some difficulty coming up with “forum”.  The answer letter layout was a beautiful ten letter jumble.  I thought manuscript right away.  Noticed there wasn’t an A.  But, then got the pun as easy as child’s play.

Great cartoon.  I’m sure they’re supposed to be someones.  Maybe Julia Child and her husband?  Maybe Jeff will tell us.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Adopt the pace of nature:  her secret is patience.”   —   Ralph Waldo Emerson

(Emerson seems to have been as much in-tune with nature as Thoreau!  I should have – but I didn’t – see the author’s name until I was well into solving this.  Fun solve.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

A hero is no braver than an ordinary man, but he is brave minutes longer.”   —   Ralph Waldo Emerson

(There is something very familiar about this quote.  Either we’ve had it before, or one that is very similar.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Our chief want is someone who will inspire us to be what we know we could be.”   —   Ralph Waldo Emerson

(That’s kind of expecting a lot out of someone, Ralph.  It’s definitely something we shouldn’t rely on.  If you find that someone . . . more power to you, but don’t hold your breath waiting on them.  You have to be willing to inspire yourself.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
