Call for Submissions: Second Annual Cyberspace Awards for Memorable Quotes

Well, it’s that time of the year again – time flies when you’re having fun – a penny saved is a penny earned.

Aha! We are off and running for the Second Annual Cyberspace Awards for Memorable Quotes. Who can ever forget the excitement of last year’s contest with its fabulous quotes that became internationally applauded through the power of  infinite cyberspace…

I have made a slight change this year – we now have TWO Categories of Awards. In addition to our Most Memorable Quotes Category, I have added Most Memorable Quotes on Tombstones as a result of Jim Blanton’s infamous hilarious tombstone supplemental sayings in last year’s contest.

Rule Review: Sorry to say but there will be no Cash Awards again this year. Unfortunately, the cash designated for the awards this year has been paid to a variety of special causes which include me, Teresa and our three needy dogs. There’s always next year.

Deadline: June 30th. And I see I am giving an additional ten days notice for everyone to be putting on their thinking caps since some criticism arose over last year’s short notice.

Please send your submissions to my very secret email address:

If you are submitting to both categories, please designate which is which.

The top ten Quotes in each category will be selected by the same judge as our previous contest – that would be me. I will publish the Top 10 winners in this blog within a very respectable time frame.

To get everyone started, I will share a couple of quotes I read recently in a little book of quotes entitled Reflections on Life and Living by James A. Williamson.

There is more to life than increasing its speed.  (Gandhi)

It is not wise to underestimate a so-called heathen.

It is never too late to begin.

And with that thought, I urge you to get those Quotes coming in!!

PS. No repeats from the previous year, please.
