oh, and I meant to ask about #1. Are you sure that's right - there aren't a whole lot of 10 letter words out there where the first letter is repeated. The 12 I did find don't fit...

1 and 2 are solved. 3 and 4 are the right people, but you didn't translate the quotes. You obviously did translate them for yourself, saya, but not for the others, as I had intended. I will I'll reveal the logic for each now:

I took out the spaces then flipped the order and put spaces where they originally were.

I simply changed each letter to the next.

When the only tool you own is a hammer, every problem begins to resemble a nail.-Abraham Maslow

I used the Al Bhed language from Final Fantasy X. It has a specific letter exchange system, and there are online translators.

Here's the one I use.

A common mistake people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.-Douglas Noel Adams

I actually ran out of ideas, so I searched for secret codes and came upon "

The Super Secret Code Translator!" Needless to say, I used it.

I'll add the other quotes later.

We cannot become what we need to be by remaining what we are.

Oprah

I still haven't figured out what method you used for #6. I just solved it because it looked similar to the translation.

... Okay then.

Max Depree. I used the alt-# codes from Notepad.

I used a keyword cipher with "Ghandi" as the keyword.

:) yeah, I don't remember the exact quote off the top of my head...

If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude.

I didn't see you've posted new ones :duh:

10 was quite easy:

He who asks is a fool for five minutes, but he who does not ask remains a fool forever (Chinese proverb)

I'll try 9 now...
