Cryptoquote Solved – 05/18/22

Théophile Gautier - Wikipedia

Fortune loves to give slippers to those with wooden legs, and gloves to those with no hands.”   —   Theophile Gautier

(This guy just looks like the prototypical poet.  He just doesn’t give a flip!  Something about this quote puts me in mind of that Alanis Morissette song:  “Ironic”.  I remember some people pointing out that some of the things she was singing about weren’t actually examples of irony.  But it’s still a good song.  Give it a listen.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

To love is to admire with the heart; to admire is to love with the mind.”   —   Theophile Gautier

(Very catchy, and very true!  I think J.K. Rowling based Hagrid on this guy!  A burly bear of a man!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Théophile Gautier

Fortune loves to give slippers to those with wooden legs, and gloves to those with no hands.”   —   Théophile Gautier

( . . . and looks and intelligence to those with no confidence.  But, I digress.  I can’t actually find this quote attributed to Monsieur Gautier, online.  And, I could only find one version of the quote, at all, inserting the word *bedroom* between “give” and “slippers”, but the quote is unattributed.  This guy looks like he was quite the character back in the mid 1800s.  He was a writer’s writer.  Check him out, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  BPD stands for:  By Popular Demand.  From checking my early stats, it looks like a lot of people were having trouble solving today’s puzzle.  Or, at least wanted confirmation that they solved it correctly.   —   YUR
