This is a quote by a very famous person. Can you decipher it? I won't include capitals in the cipher.

"oltsitemsienevfruodngania."

-ebjnmanirfnalkni



Answer

To decipher: put a space after every 2 letters. Except for the last three letters. Leave them be: olts - ol ts. nia - nia. Then, switch the two (or three) letters around: ol ts - lo st. Nia - ain. Repeat for the next letters: lo st ti me is ne ve rf ou nd ag ain. Put them together, minus spaces: losttimeisneverfoundagain. Then, look at the title: 4, 4, 2, 5, 5, 5, 8, 8... they represent letters before a space: lost time is never found again. Use this rule (this time, all letters are the same) for the last part.

It now should read:

Lost time is never found again.
-Benjamin Franklin.
