Update 2018-01-15 : Bill Briere made quick work of Challenge 17, and he gets one point on the Leaderboard! Read the solution here.

Here’s Challenge #17 for January 15th, 2018.

It’s a relatively simple one. The title should be the only hint you need. To win, be the first to provide the solution AND the source of the quote.

With CodeAWeek.com, I hope to release one cipher, puzzle, or mystery each week. Anyone can attempt to solve. The winner is the first person to send a correct solution and a description of the solve method to codemaster@codeaweek.com. Once a correct solution is e-mailed, I will publish a follow-up post, congratulating the winner and revealing the secrets of the code.

You may post questions or theories in the comments, but DO NOT POST SOLUTIONS. E-mail them to codemaster@codeaweek.com.
