Interesting little quote. The 1st and 5th words have the same repeating letters.
Solution to our last puzzle is in the first reply below.
Please dont post a spoiler solution in the general posting, but you can post it in my private reply.
Feel free to offer the group the time it took you to solve the puzzle and any tips you have on solving these.
The way it works is a letter stands for another letter.

Beware, the game is very addictive. If this is your first time, don't be intimidated.

Solution to our last puzzle:
*** EACH PROBLEM THAT I SOLVED BECAME A RULE WHICH SERVED AFTERWARDS TO SOLVE OTHER PROBLEMS. RENE DESCARTES ***
I guess you can take me off. They are way too long for my feeble brain to figure out. LOL
I felt that way at first but try for a week. You get tricks or patterns to try. Took me 10 min today. A single letter can only be A or I, the most or second most frequent letter is an e and then start looking at the smaller words and guessing what they might be: where, there, they are frequently used. When you guess look at the other places the letters fill in, some are not compatible with words so you change those guesses.
Not only interesting but very apt for our current political happenings.
4 min but the phone slows me down; my finger hits the wrong substitute letter and I have to undo it.
Yes, I agree.
Wow! Woke up this morning and we hear that:
1. Trump instructing the ACOE to figure out how to get the wall done and paid for.
2. Ruth Ginsburg may be retiring.
3. Democrats and media are falling all over themselves trying to bring our president down, but he seems to be clearly locked in place.
4. China showing signs of working a deal
Things are moving along...
I’ll take you off the list, but please try going back to the puzzle. These are tough and intimidating at first.
I’ll send you a couple hints via private reply.
That took a lot longer than I anticipated. Only got it with a few guesses.
Never interrupt...Napoleon Bonaparte
This was a hard one. Over an hour.
the shorter ones, are more difficult.
Crap, I am so sorry. That was supposed to be a private reply.
The author of this quote could just as easily been Trump....
