Subject: Great Quotes
We're starting a collective, constructive and hopefully uplifting exchange.
It's a one-time thing and we hope you will participate. We have picked
those we think would be faithful and make it fun. Please send an encouraging
quote or verse to the person whose name is in position 1(even if you don't
know him or her). It should be a favorite text verse/ motivational poem/
prayer/ mediation that has lifted you when you were experiencing challenging
After you've sent the short poem/verse/quote to the person in position 1
and only that person, copy this letter into a new email, move my name to position
1 and put your name in position 2. Only my name and your name should
show when you email. Send to 20 friends BCC(Blind Copy). If you
can not do this in five days, let us know so it will be fair to those participating.
It's fun to see where they come from. Seldom does anyone drop out because
we all need new ideas and inspiration. The turnaround is fast, as there
are only two names on the list and you only have to do it once.
Email received twice from local
friends. Recipients think it is strictly local. Some text influenced by a
cognate to a 1995 paperback book exchange chain letter (paper chain).  Googling "hopefully
uplifting exchange" produced a few uploaded examples - earliest 27 Jan. 2014.
Could replicate extensively. Sic two run-ons. See an older example with additional
analysis here. Entered
