Break The Code

Came across this great quote the other day by a British politician and naturalist who was good friends with Charles Darwin. Can you decipher it?

 

"DYUS DA BAA JAFAMJB LUKMOH XM DYUS DA OXXV WXN"

 

[If you can figure this cryptogram out, feel free to enter the original quote in the comments below. Will reveal answers sometime tomorow.Thanks]

    “What we see depends mainly on what we look for.”


    I started by figuring out the E and O vowels, then pieced the rest together based on the context and common letters and words.

    THis is veyr hard. I know the answer and still cant work out the code. It is from Sir John Lubbock, Darwins friend who became an MP. He said many quotable things but this one is hinted at by the picture above (Eyeballs). “What we see depends mainly on what we look for”. Even knowing this I cant figure out the code – toom uch going on here to concentrate properly or is it really that hard?

    Correction: What we see depends mainly on what we look for… haha…

    I fail to see the connection (besides the letter count in the words) between the crypted message and the solution. Can someone explain a bit in more detail please?

    Hi Yoshi- if you’ve never had any experience with cryptograms, this puzzle definitely is very hard. One thing you can do is look at all the 2 letter words. Those are usually the easiest to figure out. Once you get them, take those letters and plug them back into the sentence to see what else you can deduce (again, sometimes 3 & 4 letter words are the easiest to get…;)


    Hope that helps some

    Indeed, i have NO experience with cryptograms. Did a bit of research on them to see how to `break` them…didn’t fully understand but I`ll read some more. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction :)
