Once upon a time, there was a land filled with wisdom and intelligence in the form of pearls.

Most of the quotes we use today come from this land, which was called Lifeland.

However, each pearl of wisdom was safely hidden under a Cryptoweb and called a Cryptopearl, because in those days, words were considered to be powerful weapons. You had to earn a Cryptopearl to learn some new piece of wisdom about life.

Once you successfully opened the Cryptopearl, you were then awarded with whatever life changing information was inside that Cryptopearl. If you opened 4 Cryptopearls successfully, you were knighted as the Lord of Life.

In this way, over generations, many such pearls have been passed down to us. Four such Cryptopearls are given below, in their original form.

Can you open the Cryptopearls like the ancients did and find out what famous life's teaching it holds? Here's your chance to become the Lord or Lady of Life!

1. WEIE HRLI EELS RITA ESHW TAEA HWRY.
2. NVDG OENG TNOA HTTI IUHN NRIE GEND.
3. AISD FNAI RNFN IERD EEIE NDEE DIND.
4. YTRE OHCA UAAT CVKI AEET NYAT NONO OUDO.

Take the first letter of each word, then the second letter of each word and so on and rewrite the sentence. You will then get -

WHERETHEREISAWILLTHEREISAWAY

In the same way, the others can be deciphered. The four cryptopearls are -

1. Where there is a will there is a way.
2. Nothing ventured nothing gained.
3. A friend in need is a friend indeed.
4. You cannot have your cake and eat it too.
