    Default Some really nice quotes

    I know this site has been linked but these quotes need to be remembered.

    Straight from the coders mouth:

    http://realmoftwelve.fateback.com/in...nformants.html

    Some good ones:


    "I would think five or six." - Excerpt from interview in Wired Magazine when asked how many cryptographic techniques were used.
    "I made reference in the encoded text to something I could have done there."
    Thats the 2nd time he mentions something he "could have done" there.

    "Well, I'm not going to answer that question." - Excerpt from interview when asked if it is necessary to view his other works of art to solve Kryptos.
    "I intended the 80 percent (of the text) that's been deciphered to be deciphered and to be deciphered in stages and relatively quickly. The final part is obviously the, you know, the apex of the pyramid there."

    "Oh, I won't say." - when asked if anything planted at the CIA is buried


    Many more be sure to read em.

    probably my favorite -

    I like to use spatial systems of encoding and decoding."
    the rotate, break, rotate solve of k3 is testament to this.

    whats the frequency of k4 like as is?

    Ah, very good, grasshopper...

    It's not a place, it's a yearning. It's not a race, it's a journey.

    Here is a great quote from Sanborn taken from a video interview.

    There are lots of doors to go through to get to the meaning of the
    code. Every time you enter one doorway you might, in the distance,
    see another door. You go through that doorway and then you go
    through another doorway. It unfolds as it's deciphered.
    It is supposed to be from a November 2005 interview on CNN. The interviewer was Jamie McIntyre. Can anyone locate this video?

    I could not find the quote, or a video, on either of those links.
