Field Notes Giveaway.

Well I've decided to try doing my first giveaway.  I guess that there is a high chance of winning seeing as not many folk will read this but that is a positive for you guys!  The giveaway is the Field Notes notebook in the picture (pen not included-I love that too much!).  I purchased the Below Zero winter colors pack of the Field Notes notebooks and have decided that having all three is just greed.  As you can see I have also modified it slightly with a lovely silver snowflake which I thought matched the below zero theme, the wintery weather we are having and the silver writing on the outside and inside of the cover.  So that makes it unique!  What I'd like you to do for this gorgeous little notebook is leave a comment that includes a quote that I can put on the first page of my Quo Vadis Habana notebook (kindlt sent to me by Karen from Exaclair.  As this notebook is so lovely I'm having trouble starting to write in it so this will help me.  The person who provides the quote that I choose to put in my first page will get the notebook.  I'll post it to anywhere but the quote rally needs to be in English.  I shall decide which quote I choose from those submitted by midnight GMT on 9th January.  Hopefully someone will respond or I'll have to make up some quotes myself!!!!  I'll post the winner on the 10th and they will then have to contact me by the 12th to claim their prize otherwise it will pass to someone else.

Good luck.

Wow! What a fantastic idea Julie. Wasn't sure if you wanted a famous quote or a random rachelle quote so i chose the latter lol :) Here goes "writing is like travelling on a train when there are the "wrong type" of leaves on the track - you know with the patience of a saint, blind faith, buckets of sweat and tears you'll get there - eventually... " - Rachelle

Rats! Typo...let's try that again, shall we:

"In the crypt of the Abbey Church at Hallowdene, the monks were boiling their Bishop..." - Sylvian Hamilton.

Actually it's the first line from her first novel, "The Bone Pedlar" and has got to be the best, most inspiring first line I've ever read.

I don't know if you want a writing-related quote, or just a life-related quote, but I'll go with life-related and give you a favorite of mine:
"Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain
Or, a little more writerly:
"You can find inspiration in everything, and if you can't, look again." -Sir Paul Smith

And on second thought I'm not sure I was actually allowed to suggest two....Oh, well, they're both good, I think.
