It occurred to him that his scarcely perceptible attempts to struggle against what was considered good by the most highly placed people, those scarcely noticeable impulses which he had immediately suppressed, might have been the real thing, and all the rest false. ~ Leo Tolstoy
Inspiration quotes by Leo Tolstoy
Inspiration comes from somewhere else, and some people merely act as lightning rods for inspiration. There's nothing great about them. ~ Cockballs
Inspiration quotes by Cockballs
They say heartbreak is a blessing. It helps you grow and turns you into a better, more powerful person. You become as strong as a beast. ~ Priyanka Agarwal
Inspiration quotes by Priyanka   Agarwal
The death of a dream can in fact serve as the vehicle that endows it with new form, with reinvigorated substance, a fresh flow of ideas, and splendidly revitalized color. In short, the power of a certain kind of dream is such that death need not indicate finality at all but rather signify a metaphysical and metaphorical leap forward. ~ Aberjhani
Inspiration quotes by Aberjhani
Spiritual literature can be a great aid to an aspirant, or it can be a terrible hindrance. If it is used to inspire practice, motivate compassion, ad nourish devotion, it serves a very valuable purpose. If scriptural study is used for mere intellectual understanding, for pride of accomplishment, or as a substitute for actual practice, then one is taking in too much mental food, which is sure to result in intellectual indigestion. (152) ~ Prem Prakash
Inspiration quotes by Prem Prakash
Those things that hurt, instruct. ~ M. Scott Peck
Inspiration quotes by M. Scott Peck
How can the face that welcomed me into the world be the face I'll soon forget? How can the body I came through be the body I don't really know? ~ Michelle Carithers
Inspiration quotes by Michelle Carithers
Ideas take root at the oddest moments. Some grow into novels, the weaker ones wither and die. ~ Pippa DaCosta
Inspiration quotes by Pippa DaCosta
Emotional versatility is the art of making peace with the entire emotional spectrum by honing your capacity to channel various feelings along creative and constructive lines. It is not about controlling or condemning your feelings. It's about conducting your feelings in a self-edifying way. ~ T.K. Coleman
Inspiration quotes by T.K. Coleman
I can't stress how much my daughter is an inspiration to stay sober. When I come home and she opens those big blue eyes at me, it's the most amazing feeling I could ever feel. ~ A. J. McLean
Inspiration quotes by A. J. McLean
Life is meant to be enjoyed, not trying to dissect your self-worth to others or even yourself."

Inspiration quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
Living in Supreme Influence, your language is neutral and/or moving toward your vision rather than moving away. In other words, you speak about what you do want, not about what you don't want. ~ Niurka
Inspiration quotes by Niurka
Love is the very process of passing over, of transformation, of stepping outside the limitations of fallen humanity - in which we are all separated from one another and ultimately impenetrable to one another - into an infinite otherness. ~ Pope Benedict XVI
Inspiration quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
If you have a big idea or plan that you desire to execute, don't depend solely on others to appreciate your efforts. You must have the ability to encourage yourself. At times seeking encouragement from others can lead to disappointment which sometimes leads you to neglect your obligation. Never build your hopes and dreams based primarily on the accolades from others. You may discover a rude awakening. ~ Amaka Imani Nkosazana
Inspiration quotes by Amaka Imani Nkosazana
Be still. Be silent. Be soulfully present. In love. With love. As love. ~ Alexandra Domelle

I connect the psychedelic dimension to the dimension of inspiration and dream. ~ Terence McKenna
Inspiration quotes by Terence McKenna
[We] administered testosterone to men; instead of sharing money, they become selfish. Interestingly, high testosterone males are also more likely to use their own money to punish others for being selfish. ~ Paul J. Zak
Inspiration quotes by Paul J. Zak
That you DO, you ARE,
If you MUST, you WILL,
If you CAN, you MIGHT,
if you TRY, you WON'T,
If you CAN'T, you're RIGHT ~ Charlie Kennedy
Inspiration quotes by Charlie Kennedy
Gratitude is a virtue of the rarest kind. ~ K.Hari Kumar
Inspiration quotes by K.Hari Kumar
Rosa had achieved the sort of serene and confident happiness that Tamsin had never really known. She was connected to Roberto in a way that made Tamsin long for something similar. A man with whom she could share all parts of her life, someone to be her equal and her inspiration. ~ Emily Arden
Inspiration quotes by Emily Arden
Raindrops are nothing more than a lullaby for the restless soul. ~ Erin Forbes
Inspiration quotes by Erin Forbes
Why do you wake up in the morning? ~ Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
Inspiration quotes by Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
My inspiration for writing music is like Don McLean did when he did "American Pie" or "Vincent". Lorraine Hansberry with "A Raisin in the Sun". Like Shakespeare when he does his thing, like deep stories, raw human needs.

I'm trying to think of a good analogy. It's like, you've got the Vietnam War, and because you had reporters showing us pictures of the war at home, that's what made the war end, or that shit would have lasted longer. If no one knew what was going on we would have thought they were just dying valiantly in some beautiful way. But because we saw the horror, that's what made us stop the war.

So I thought, that's what I'm going to do as an artist, as a rapper. I'm gonna show the most graphic details of what I see in my community and hopefully they'll stop it quick.

I've seen all of that-- the crack babies, what we had to go through, losing everything, being poor, and getting beat down. All of that. Being the person I am, I said no no no no. I'm changing this. ~ Tupac Shakur
Inspiration quotes by Tupac Shakur
There are times when, that which we wish to be, will come to be, when we let it be. ~ Tom Althouse
Inspiration quotes by Tom Althouse
The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody who'll listen to me, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself. Things occur to you. If you're sitting around trying to dream up a great art idea, you can sit there a long time before anything happens. But if you just get to work, something will occur to you and something else will occur to you and something else that you reject will push you in another direction. Inspiration is absolutely unnecessary and somehow deceptive. You feel like you need this great idea before you can get down to work, and I find that's almost never the case. ~ Chuck Close
Inspiration quotes by Chuck Close
I know there are days when even one single positive thought feels like too much effort, but you must develop an unconditional love for life. You must never lose your childish curiosity for the possibilities in every single day. Who you can be, what you can see, what you can feel and where it can lead you. Be in love with your life, everything about it. The sadness and the joys, the struggles and the lessons, your flaws and strengths, what you lose and what you gain. ~ Charlotte Eriksson
Inspiration quotes by Charlotte Eriksson
Be truthful, say what you mean and mean what you say, don't ignore the given circumstances. ~ Lauren Graham
Inspiration quotes by Lauren Graham
Love is looking at the same mountains from different angles. ~ Paulo Coelho
Inspiration quotes by Paulo Coelho
Dream a bigger dream to reach uncharted success ~ S.C. Ellington
Inspiration quotes by S.C. Ellington
Love changes things; hope allows us to endure until the change arrives. ~ Iimani David
Inspiration quotes by Iimani David
I don't believe in inspiration that arrives like a bolt from the blue ... It seems to me that the more motivated I am by what I film, the more objectively I film. ~ Agnes Varda
Inspiration quotes by Agnes Varda
Hope is the greatest gift and the greatest evil...Hope saved us and hope might yet kill us. ~ Nalini Singh
Inspiration quotes by Nalini Singh
It is not the quantity of your thoughts but the quality of your thoughts that make the difference. Thoughts can either be productive or a hindrance. But, when we focus our attention on faithfulness and truthfulness the restoration process begins. ~ Amaka Imani Nkosazana
Inspiration quotes by Amaka Imani Nkosazana
Let Your Color Out! ~ Lindy Lewis
Inspiration quotes by Lindy Lewis
Hold onto your dreams ~ Langston Hughes
Inspiration quotes by Langston Hughes
This is the new year the new you. You can pass through another year, coasting on cruise control. Or you can step out of your comfort zone, trying things you have never done before, & make 2012 as the year that you elevate from where you are & soar high. Make it happen! ~ Pablo
Inspiration quotes by Pablo
Bilbo and Frodo overcome the objections of the Baggins side of themselves in order to embrace the Quests that await them. Sometimes we have the same struggles as they do. The Took in us wants to pursue dreams, and the Baggins part wants to stay safe and conventional. Too often we heed the negative thinking that convinces us that we do not have the time, money, energy, or opportunity to make our desires come true. We think we have too many other obligations blocking our way. Sometimes we also saddle ourselves with the false guilt that tells us it is not right to do anything for ourselves, especially if we have a family to take care of first. We must not abandon our true responsibilities, of course, but would it not be better if we could fulfill them in a way that fed our soul and not just our pocketbook and got us excited about going to work rather than dreading the drudgery? ~ Anne Marie Gazzolo
Inspiration quotes by Anne Marie Gazzolo
Storytelling comes naturally to humans, but since we live in an unnatural world, we sometimes need a little help doing what we'd naturally do. ~ Dan Harmon
Inspiration quotes by Dan Harmon
One cup of food a day changes Fabian's life completely. But this morning, about a billion people on Earth - or one out of every seven - woke up and didn't even know how to fill this cup. One out of every seven people. ~ Josette Sheeran
Inspiration quotes by Josette Sheeran
My life is more than a waiting period; it is an expedition. How I perceive it, and how I improve upon it is solely up to me. ~ Celeste Cooper
Inspiration quotes by Celeste Cooper
Inner silence promotes clarity of mind; It makes us value the inner world; It trains us to go inside to the source of peace and inspiration when we are faced with problems and challenges. ~ Deepak Chopra
Inspiration quotes by Deepak Chopra
Daily listen from others what you can't do.
Daily know their fears of what you can do. ~ Neha Shwens Firoz
Inspiration quotes by Neha Shwens Firoz
I'm a Midwesterner, and everyone in Ohio is excited. I'm also a New Yorker, and a New Jerseyan, and an American, plus I'm an African-American, and a woman. I know it seems like I'm spreading like algae when I put it this way, but I'd like to think of the prize being distributed to these regions and nations and races. ~ Toni Morrison
Inspiration quotes by Toni Morrison
I am a puzzle and a conundrum and a thunderstorm. ~ Brian Doyle
Inspiration quotes by Brian Doyle
What you've done isn't the only thing that defines who you are. Words are just as powerful as action. They can aspire action in others, can't they? ~ Erica Crouch
Inspiration quotes by Erica Crouch
I know, win or lose, I enjoyed the prospect of giving it my all. ~ Arnold Palmer

I envy Pete Sampras's dullness. I wish I could emulate his spectacular lack of inspiration. ~ Andre Agassi

Portray [people with mental illness] sympathetically, and portray them in all the richness and depth of their experience as people, and not as diagnoses. ~ Elyn Saks
Inspiration quotes by Elyn Saks
Keep your eyes on the prize and know that the trials are only for a while, so smile. ~ Bernard Kelvin Clive
Inspiration quotes by Bernard Kelvin Clive
The Lord has put more hardships atop the shoulders of my neighbors - more than I can even fathom coping with. I will strive to find a way to turn pity into admiration, for what use is it to send pity back at the world. Admiration and awe are much more helpful, especially when I find myself feeling like a victim for being stuck in traffic or losing my favorite sweater. Perspective is a blessing. ~ Erica Goros
Inspiration quotes by Erica Goros
You can't change the world if the world doesn't know who you are. ~ Francis Shenstone
Inspiration quotes by Francis Shenstone
Please don't feel shame. It's the devil's sword. ~ Beth Wiseman
Inspiration quotes by Beth Wiseman
You have been waiting for a gift all the while but you forgot that you are the gift - unwrap the gem within and shine! ~ Bernard Kelvin Clive
Inspiration quotes by Bernard Kelvin Clive
If we always live
in constant fear
then we might miss
the beauty of the moment
right now, right here. ~ S. Tarr
Inspiration quotes by S. Tarr
The heart breaks in so many different ways that when it heals, it will have fault lines ... ~ John Geddes
Inspiration quotes by John Geddes

Inspiration quotes by Joe Paterno
Any body can laugh in Joy, but the bold ones also smile in pain ... knowing that pain is just like a zooming train, that will soon pass by.-RVM ~ R.v.m.
Inspiration quotes by R.v.m.
Try smiling quietly when you open your eyes in the morning. Or try saying out loud, "I'm happy." In that moment, the energy of happiness will gather around you. Remember that feeling and express it whenever you get the chance. ~ Ilchi Lee
Inspiration quotes by Ilchi Lee
What if every seemingly isolated object was actually just where the continuous wave of that object poked through into our world? ~ Reuben Heyday Margolin
Inspiration quotes by Reuben Heyday Margolin
We need leadership books that offer information as well as inspiration. Pop leadership is one of the most destructive forces today. ~ Paul Gibbons
Inspiration quotes by Paul Gibbons
I'm really a timid person - I was beaten up by Quakers ~ Woody Allen
Inspiration quotes by Woody Allen
Write down everything you can think of, no matter how stupid it seems. I always write down my thoughts throughout the day. Sometimes good things come out of it, and I'll find an idea to develop into a song, so my best advice is to try and draw inspiration from everyday things. ~ Daya
Inspiration quotes by Daya
By taking control of the present, you are choosing to alter the past you are making for yourself, and your future too. ~ Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
Inspiration quotes by Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
I guess when you're trying to find all the parts of yourself, it's difficult to be with someone who's already fully intact. ~ Cecelia Ahern
Inspiration quotes by Cecelia Ahern
With a little study you'll go a long ways, and I wish you'd start now ~ Groucho Marx
Inspiration quotes by Groucho Marx
In many ways, unexpected results are what have most inspired my photography. ~ Harold Eugene Edgerton
Inspiration quotes by Harold Eugene Edgerton
Its not what the universe gives us that matters, but what we give the universe ~ Lauren Myracle
Inspiration quotes by Lauren Myracle
Music can minister to minds diseased, pluck from the memory a rooted sorrow, raze out the written troubles of the brain, and with its sweet oblivious antidote, cleanse the full bosom of all perilous stuff that weighs upon the heart. ~ William Shakespeare
Inspiration quotes by William Shakespeare
When I was a child, the lessons my father taught me had been about perseverance, never to accept limitations that stood in my way. As an adult, watching him in his final years, I also saw how to come to terms with limits that couldn't simply be wished away. When to shift from pushing against limits to making the best of them is not often readily apparent. But it is clear that are times when the cost of pushing exceeds its value. Helping my father through the struggle to define that moment was simultaneously among the most painful and most privileged experiences of my life. Part of the way my father handled the limits he faced was by looking at them without illusion. Though his circumstances sometimes got him down, he never pretended they were better than they were. He always understood that life is short and one's place in the world is small. But he also saw himself as a link in a chain of history. ~ Atul Gawande
Inspiration quotes by Atul Gawande
You don't have to shine to prove that you are a star, but you need to reason to show that you have the ability. We can think that we have all the answers in the world even though we don't have it, how we can feel jealous of something or someone that was never ours, but we must have a single certainty: that we must take a risk for what we want to achieve and we must never fail to show our opinion . ~ Abraham Schneersohn
Inspiration quotes by Abraham Schneersohn
The universe is not more beautiful than your pure thoughts-enlighten the world around you, the rest is complementary... ~ Vedang Sati
Inspiration quotes by Vedang Sati
The only thing that makes advice great is when you apply it and it works so try, try try. ~ Rob Liano
Inspiration quotes by Rob Liano
As soon as you start to feel differently about what you already have, you will start to attract more of the good things, more of the things you can be grateful for. ~ Joe Vitale
Inspiration quotes by Joe Vitale
We're at a point in time which is analogous to when single-celled organisms were turning into multi-celled organisms. So we're the amoebas. ~ Danny Hillis
Inspiration quotes by Danny Hillis
Unless souls are saved, nothing is saved; there can be no world peace without soul peace. ~ Fulton J. Sheen
Inspiration quotes by Fulton J. Sheen
I love this planet because Inspiration comes from everywhere. I named one of my books after a verse in a song I heard in my friend's car. ~ Mahmoud Shaker
Inspiration quotes by Mahmoud Shaker
For thousands of years humanity has been trying to answer the question: "Do we have life after death?" Maybe for the first time you must now answer the question: "Do I really have a life before death? ~ Dragos Bratasanu
Inspiration quotes by Dragos Bratasanu
Humor is mankind's greatest blessing. ~ Mark Twain
Inspiration quotes by Mark Twain
I don't know what the inspiration for most of songs really mean until I finish them. For the most part, I'm going for a visceral impression, and I write the words last. ~ Todd Rundgren
Inspiration quotes by Todd Rundgren
Happiness doesn't come from doing what we like to do but from liking what we have to do. ~ Wilferd Peterson

Inspiration quotes by Amaka Imani Nkosazana
Architecture arises out of our need to shelter the human animal in a spatial environment and to enclose the social animal in a group space. In this sense architecture serves our institutions and expresses the values of our culture. ~ Robert L. Geddes
Inspiration quotes by Robert L. Geddes
All great men face challenges in the pursuit of their goals. However, the challenges did not deter them for pushing forward and realizing their goals. ~ Lailah Gifty Akita
