A peace is of the nature of a conquest; for then both parties nobly are subdued, and neither party loser.
-William Shakespeare

Even peace may be purchased at too high a price.
-Benjamin Franklin

For behind all imperialism is ultimately the imperialistic individual, just as behind all peace is ultimately the peaceful individual.
-Irving Babbitt

He that would live in peace and at ease must not speak all he knows or all he sees.
-Benjamin Franklin

The Caesar Cipher is used to decipher this message.A Caesar cipher is one of the simplest (and easiest cracked) encryption methods. It is a Substitution Cipher that involves replacing each letter of the secret message with a different letter of the alphabet which is a fixed number of positions further in the alphabet.

Because each letter in the message has a direct translation to another letter, frequency analysis can be used to decipher the message. For example, the letter E is the most commonly used letter in the English language. Thus, if the most common letter in a secret message is K, it is likely that K represents E. Additionally, common word endings such as ING, LY, and ES also give clues.

A brute-force approach of trying all 25 possible combinations would also work to decipher the message.

Here is the answer key:
A-R
B-S
C-T
D-U
E-V
F-W
G-X
H-Y
I-Z
J-A
K-B
L-C
M-D
N-E
O-F
P-G
Q-H
R-I
S-J
T-K
U-L
V-M
W-N
X-O
Y-P
Z-Q
