$15 for Fame


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”

Reminds me of an early book, titled Where Wizards Stay Up Late by Katie Hafner & Matthew Lyon on the origins of the Internet.

Anyway, I think it’s a nice motivational piece. It reminds us that success comes in part to those who are willing to work for it, even well into the wee hours of the morning.

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.

    Whoops! No, it is closed. I will have to do the drawing tonight. I had it in my head that I had it running until the end of the month, but I see now that it was the 25th. Thanks for the reminder!
