A coded text (Posted on 2020-06-26) Difficulty: 4 of 5
My message, consisting of 4 words (none of them esoteric) is endorsed by many followers, so I will not bother to define it as a proverb, catch phrase or quotation.
I will rather provide now few details how the process of coding was done and if you are willing to take chances you will easily solve it analytically.

So, here we go:

a. The 4 words of my message are of distinct lengths.
b. Prior to the coding I've erased the 3 spaces to form a continuous chain.
c. Then I've partitioned this chain of letters into triplets - the order was not disturbed.
d. Each triplet then was replaced by the product of the numerical values of all its letters (i.e. 1 for A, 2 for B, ..., 26 for Z).

To illustrate the process let's start with a sample phrase - MONEY TIME NOW:
a. MONEYTIMENOW
c. MON EYT IME NOW
d. 2730, 2500, 585, 4830

It looks terrifying? It is not!!

Now my text, coded accordingly:

1620, 5880, 30, 5940, 3040, 150, 48.

After recovering the original text, please comment upon its source and meaning.

Bonne pioche!
