The real test of golf and in life is not keeping out of the rough, but getting out after we are in.”   —   Source Obscure

(Just another  way of saying:  “What we call failure is not the falling down but the staying down.”   —   Mary Pickford.  And, I’m sure Mary was paraphrasing a similar quote.  Great truth in the sentiment though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

A perpetual optimist is a person who has nothing to worry about because he has nothing to worry with.”   —   Source Obscure

(Kind of a snarkier version of “Ignorance is bliss”.  And clearly, I’m not in agreement with the sentiment.  Worrying is more a matter of attitude, than intelligence.  More dopes buy into the “terror” and “security” hoopla – that our government and corporate media keep feeding us – than thinking people do.  You can place me squarely in the Helen Keller camp on this!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Sometimes I think we’re alone.  Sometimes I think we’re not.  In either case, the thought is staggering.”   —   Source Obscure

(I definitely think we are not alone.  The universe is so immense.  We’re one planet in our solar system.  Our sun is one of more than 200 billion stars in our galaxy – the Milky Way.  And, the Milky Way is only one of 100 billion – and probably more – galaxies in the universe.  So, the odds that we are the only intelligent lifeforms out there is very remote.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”   —   Source Obscure

(Emerson, Holmes, Thoreau???  This quote, that you hear at many commencement ceremonies, has no clear author.  Any one of them, or someone else, could have said it.  It’s a little optimistically trite, but it’s a nice motivational ism.  At least for me, it made for a very easy solve.  I am without a print version of the Cryptoquote for the next five days, or so.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The first step toward getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are.”   —   Source Obscure

(I love quotes where I don’t have to Google the author, or consider the obscure subtext.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Life is like photography.  You need the negatives to develop.”   —   Source Obscure

(I don’t know.  Maybe Ansel Adams came up with this, in one of his cornier moments.  😉  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.”   —   Source Obscure

(I bet it was someone who ran a blog!  Maybe I should start taking credit for all the Source Obscure/Uncertain/Unknown quotes???  Yeah . . . sure, that was Uncle Rave!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
