Missing Vowels  (400 Points)

All the vowels have been omitted in this phrase.  Can you figure out what the vowels are to complete it?  (Note that the spaces do not mean beginning or end of words)

Example: YCNN TJDG BKBY TSCVR

Answer: YOU CAN NOT JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER

MRKSM NSNWH SHTSF RSTND WHTVR
HHTSH CLLSH STRGT

 

Answer:

First, run it all together, because the spaces are just distracting:

MRKSMNSNWHSHTSFRSTNDWHTVRHHTSHCLLSHSTRGT

Then, see if you can isolate some words, and insert the right vowels into them:

MRKSMNSNWHSHTS FiRST NDWHTVRHHTSHCLLSHS TaRGeT

Continue this process until you feel confident you've arrived at a sentence that makes sense.  Remember: the words "A" or "I" would be completely missing from the original sentence, because they have no consonants.  Here, the word "A" was added at the beginning in order that the sentence would make sense.
