Ten Motivational Posters for Galley Slaves


Just add stock photography.  These seemed like a real hoot when I was making them up.  Now I'm not so sure.

Teamwork: One man rowing alone spins in circles.  A ship's crew rowing together achieves ramming speed.

Endurance: Every voyage is made up of single strokes of the oar.

Inspiration: The lash does not tell me I have failed, it tells me that I must work harder to succeed.

Ambition: Unless you are unshackled, the view never changes.

Community: There is no "I" in "galley."

Challenge: When I have faced the battle, the shoals, and the storm at sea, then I can say I have truly lived.

Leadership: What have I done today to help my seatmates move the ship forward?

Effort: You can't say "trireme" without TRY!

Loyalty: The whip will only scar me, but the enemy can send me to the bottom of the sea.

Brotherhood: My seatmates share my burden; I shall not complain of their stench.
