Cryptogram: Heavenly Bodies

["The Most Important Image Ever Taken", very nice short video by Tony Darnell]

The above cryptogram represents a quote from Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

If you’ve never tried this kind of puzzle before, each “real” letter from the quote has been replaced by a “false” letter. For example, the phrase :

“TODAY IS A FINE DAY” could be encrypted:

“QTIXC PF X UPAS IXC” or

“MITEL GK E SGZA TEL”.

Here’s an earlier cryptogram from June 2007.

You may also enjoy the most heavily commented post on the smart-kit site [not a puzzle though]

Click on the letters to print out the cryptogram. If you can figure it out, feel free to enter the original quote in the comments below. Will reveal a hint sometime tomorrow, and answers in about 48 hours, thanks

    When Horatio expresses disbelief at seeing a ghost, Hamlet goes on to tell him “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosphy”.
