For those of you who never played the computer game "Might and Magic," the Vowel-less Knights would always say something without vowels. It was up to you, the player, to figure out what they were saying. In their tradition, what are these famous quotes? (And for bonus points, who said them?)

1) Spk sftl nd crr bg stck.
2) gv hm th whl nn yrds!
3) Nvr hv s fw gvn s mch fr s mn.


Solution:

1) Speak softly and carry a big stick.
Bonus: Theodore Roosevelt.

2) I gave him the whole nine yards!
Bonus: Fighter pilots would say this when they shot all 27 feet of ammunition at one target.

3) Never have so few given so much for so many.
Bonus: Winston Churchill, praising the British fighter pilots who won the Battle of Britain.
