"If thou wouldst conquer thy weakness thou must not gratify it. "
William Penn

sonofcarc on 2009-02-11 18:42:10
I believe "wouldn't" should be "wouldst," without an apostrophe.

chriscrojam on 2011-02-17 22:51:48
Oh gee, thank you sonofcarc for making it three times harder!

Lurker on 2012-06-25 00:33:04
That's it, sonofcarc, no more "helpful" comments from you! At least I got "thy" right, or I'd still be trying to solve it.

abra on 2013-08-05 14:28:15
You mean this used to be Wouldn't, and they FIXED it? Love that.

I didn't remember this one, but I got THY and THOU right, on the first try. That got me a Very Fast.

figmo on 2015-07-31 11:37:29
When I saw William Penn, I expected "thy," "thee," and "thou."

SippyGurl on 2015-11-05 19:37:45
there aren't any apostrophes anymore. at least, not what shows after solving... i don't remember what the solving part had.

"A man's first care should be to avoid the reproaches of his own heart, and his next to escape the censures of the world." Joseph Addison

Escaping the censures should be easy; you'd only have to hide once every ten years.

I like this thread. Some years ago, I went to Seattle with a friend (I live in Portland). We were walking along the waterfront, by the piers, and some music was playing in the distance. As we got closer and closer, I realized it was the Byrds, playing at an amphitheater on a pier in the open air, on a summer night, and they sang this. Magic. Also, free. :-)

Default Crypogrammers analyze a misquoted Bible passage

"Money is the root of all evil, and yet it is such a useful root that we cannot get on without it any more than we can without potatoes." Louisa May Alcott

matarisa on 2011-05-26 14:14:47
It's the love of money that's the problem.

Lurker on 2012-05-30 00:50:23
I can do fine without potatoes.

Barnabas on 2012-11-12 19:51:44
I'd actually be better off with a little more money and a little less potatoes.

tskaggs6 on 2014-10-09 04:20:10
Proof of money's superiority over potatoes can be clearly proven by an easy test. Try putting enough potatoes to buy lunch in your wallet.

LLapp on 2015-02-16 19:14:31
The love of evil is the root of all potatoes.

dovid1946 on 2015-03-06 05:05:35
money can't buy you love, but it can buy you potatoes.

kb83 on 2015-06-21 08:43:05
Potatoes are a root vegetable.

wvwoman on 2015-07-09 13:37:00
omg, these comments were such fun to read!!

Annamariah on 2015-10-22 14:38:19
This is from Little Men. Funny that I should get an Alcott quote while I'm taking a break from writing my master's thesis about the translation of Alcott's book A Long Fatal Love Chase. Maybe the site is trying to tell me to get back to work...

abra on 2016-09-25 14:54:10
I'm Irish. Potatoes are one of Nature's most perfect foods. Money's good too.

CarpeLanam on 2016-11-15 08:55:45
The guy on The Martian couldn't get on without potatoes, either.

Beagle on 2017-05-12 05:30:08
kb83, that was brilliant.

abra on 2017-07-07 18:57:50
The incredible, edible potato. How do I love thee... It's like race memory.

"If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible."
