#### Cryptograms

Cryptograms are encoded English sayings and quotations where each letter has been substituted for another. Each puzzle uses a different substitution scheme, but letter substitutions are applied consistently throughout each individual puzzle. A letter may not stand for itself. Can you decode the cryptograms?

The decoded quotations are a blend of, well known quotes and obscure quotes. Have fun!
