It's easy to do these things for me because really the human mind sees the word as a whole, so no mtater hwo i selpl it, yuo wlil unrestandd me.

VERY COOL teaser! Loved it! I got ALMOST all of it right. Could'nt get "Passion" in the first one and I got "being" instead of "begin" in the last (no wonder it didn't make sense to me...).
Keep more teasers like this one coming! I really enjoyed doing this one!

btw, GABALLA06, being able to understand what a word is saying, even if it is misspelled, works as long as all the letters of a word are present and the first and last letters are in the correct place. (Obviously, we can also get some other jumbled words that do not fit these rules...but this comes from a magazine article I read.)

Nice Quiz
I only got the ghandi Quote but thats just because I had never herd the other one's

As I am familiar with each of these quotes it was quite easy to figure out the mixed-up words.
I like the thinking behind the second one, but I can say from experience having faced the possibility of having 3-6 months to live. And while I can attest to the fact that it is fun to "live like you were dying" it is not cheap! Couldn't afford to do it for long!
