    I got it!

    A man finds room in the few inches of his face for the traits of all his ancestors; for the expression of all his history, and his wants.

    Yep. I had to write down and look at the left over letters.
    It shouldn't have been all that hard to find... "the few square inches".
    Lol

    “If America ever passes out as a great nation, we ought to put on our tombstone: America died from a delusion she had Moral Leadership.”
    ―Will Rogers

    Once I had the solution, MrGoogle gave me the source. 🙂
    That was the best kind of cryptogram, a couple of obvious easy words right near the start. AMERICA and EVER/EVEN this time. I like PEOPLE, THAT and THERE too.

    This one had me stumped. The one you started with was much easier... I couldn't seem to get passed the letter J being either 'I' or 'a'.

    Single letters are most likely A, because I requires first-person content. A*****A is a fairly obvious AMERICA. A repeated letter in a short word is a huge help, think EVER EVEN ALL OFF.

    The starting point in this one just has to be the DFF, which can't be OFF so must be ALL. Good luck!

    Well done! Creating these things is hard work unless you have a cipher font. Have a go?

    Don't have a cipher font, but I found a site that has cryptograms to solve. Not able to cut and paste the puzzles so must copy the cryptos by hand...
