Below are two quotes, each by a different individual. However, some of their letters have been removed. Your task is twofold: first, determine what letters have been removed and, secondly, take those letters and unscramble them to spell out the individual's name. Do this for each quote. Do not mix the letters between the two quotes. An example has been provided.
