Cryptoquote Solved – 06/10/22

Who Was Hattie McDaniel?

Tea has remedies for all difficulties, and iced tea has answers for all problems and the summer heat.”   —   Unknown

(This sounds, to me, like something one of our more famous southern authors might have said.  William Faulkner, Thomas Wolfe, James Agee, Margaret Mitchell, Alice Walker or Harper Lee.  Someone like that.  Can’t give you an image of “Unknown”, so I’m giving you a photo of today’s Celebrity Cipher author!  A wonderful actress!  Enjoy!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Best Donut Shops in Chicago: Where to Find the Best Donuts - Thrillist

You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy donuts.  And that’s kind of the same thing.”   —   Unknown

(This sounds, to me, like something Garfield would say, so I’m attributing this quote to Jim Davis!  Garfield is kind of a garbage disposal, and he’ll pretty much eat anything that’s edible, although his favorite food is lasagna.  Very closely followed by donuts!  So, I’m giving this one up to Jim Davis!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

If History Repeats Itself Im Getting A Dinosaur - Pop Threads

If history repeats itself, I am so getting a dinosaur.”   —   Unknown

(How can this be “Unknown”?  I don’t think it’s been all that long since people have been saying things like “I am SO getting a . . .”  This pattern of speech seems like it’s from the last 20-30years.  At least to me.  It sounds like it could have been said by some comedian.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

What is the one word for 'a person with an obstinately uncooperative  attitude'? - Quora

Consistency in regard to opinions is the slow poison of intellectual life.”   —   Unknown

(I think if there had been a comma after “consistency” I would have gotten “regard” faster.  As it were, I had to write out BDGJMQRVXZ, and figure out what made sense!  This was a fun/challenging solve though.  We haven’t had an Unknown in quite a while.  If you’re not flexible, and unable to evolve, when it comes to your opinions, you are never going to grow.  This I believe.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Image result for a chatterbox

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”   —   Unknown

(Truly wise words!  So many people like to flap their gums, without really knowing what they’re talking about.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Image result for Some people dream of success while others wake up and work hard at it.

Some people dream of success while others wake up and work hard at it.”   —   Unknown

(Sounds like it could be Twain, or Billings.  Maybe even Iaccoca.  Or, like this image say, maybe Churchill.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.”   —   Unknown

PS.  Copy and paste is not working right now.  Sorry for no image.      YUR

Image result for Rumsfeld

The advantage of working day and night is that you earn enough to pay the doctor when you break down.”   —   Speaker Unknown

(Ahh!  Trying to throw us off a little with “Speaker Unknown”!  We’ve had Author Unknown, Source Unknown, and just plain Unknown before.  Now, we have Speaker Unknown!  I guess that Rumsfeld guy was right.  “. . . we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns – the ones we don’t know we don’t know.”  Yes, old snake eyes, himself.  Only a politician could come up with that.  But, with today’s quote, it seems like it can’t be all that old.  Shouldn’t someone be able to track down this “unknown” speaker???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 06/29/18

The first to apologize is the bravest.  The first to forgive is the strongest.  The first to forget is the happiest.”   —   Unknown

(It definitely should flow in this order though.  A good apology should contain some kind of explanation for the offending words or actions.  This allows the hurt one to forgive.  Then, with the passage of a little time, both can forget, and get on with the relationship.  Be well and do well, friends.)   —   YUR
