when shouldn’t you trust love?

cryptogram

for today’s brain teaser, see if you can solve this cryptogram.  if you’re unfamiliar, cryptograms are messages veiled by a secret code.  to crack the code, you have to think about frequencies in a language (what letters come after an apostrophe?  what phrases look familiar based on the numbers of spaces?  see any common prefixes/suffixes?).

here, you’re looking for a quote on when love shouldn’t be trusted (click on it for a printable copy).  each number below the space represents a specific letter.  as you begin to figure out the number-letter combos, track it in the chart above and use it as a guide for solving the rest of the puzzle.  to help you get started, i’ll give you some clues on the person who said the quote (listed after the hyphen in the puzzle):

– celebrated 85th birthday last week

– name inspired from time spent as a calypso dancer/singer

– awarded the presidential medal of freedom in 2011

write the answer in the comments.  also, share your thoughts on the statement (does it ring true to you?)
