The heights by great men reached and kept
Were not attained by sudden flight,
But they while their companions slept
Were toiling upward in the night.
Henry W. Longfellow, in “The Ladder of St. Augustine”

What’s your favorite motivational or inspiring quote? It could be worth $15.
Write a post on your blog about your favorite motivational or inspiring quote, and link back to this post. You can leave a comment here when you’re done, just in case the trackback doesn’t work or something.
Each blog post with a linkback counts as one entry for you. Thursday, August 23rd, 2007 will be the last day for this. Then, I will count all the entries and draw a winner on August 25th, 2007.
Void where prohibited. You must be able to accept a PayPal payment. So, if you’re in a country not served by PayPal, sorry. Any applicable taxes are the responsibility of the winner. And, I reserve the right to retroactively apply any legal stuff I should have included but didn’t know I should have.
Oh, I did mention the prize is $15, sent via PayPal? If not, I’m doing so now. One prize of $15.00 (fifteen dollars). That’s in U.S. dollars, by the way. Everyone else gets that warm fuzzy feeling for sharing their favorite motivational or inspiring quote with their readers.
