What moves those of genius what inspires their work is not new ideas but their obsession with the idea that what has already been said is still not enough.
Everyone has a story that makes me stronger. I know that the work I do is important and I enjoy it but it is nice to hear the feedback of what we do to inspire others.
Motivation is everything. You can do the work of two people but you can't be two people. Instead you have to inspire the next guy down the line and get him to inspire his people.
Does wisdom perhaps appear on the earth as a raven which is inspired by the smell of carrion?
I shall endeavour still further to prosecute this inquiry an inquiry I trust not merely speculative but of sufficient moment to inspire the pleasing hope of its becoming essentially beneficial to mankind.
I like to think that if it hadn't gone as well as it has if I wasn't able to make a living off of playing music I would still be playing the music. But of course I wouldn't likely have had the opportunity to travel and a lot of the places have inspired songs.
When you're an artist there's always a moment in your life when you think you're not inspired and instead of doing things and instead of travel and instead of falling in love you're just depressed so you don't move so you don't change. So you're not inspired.
When I travel I love speaking to women around the world about the things that inspire them the fashions they like what makes something good and what would make it even better.
I see my path but I don't know where it leads. Not knowing where I'm going is what inspires me to travel it.
The time at our disposal each day is elastic the passions we feel dilate it those that inspire us shrink it and habit fills it.
I really liked 'Starter For Ten' because I grew up watching 1980s teen films like 'St. Elmo's Fire' and 'The Breakfast Club' and I've always wanted to play the underdog lead hero in a 1980s-inspired film.
I was very inspired by my mother. She was a vocal teacher and sang in a band and my first memories of her were going out with her on the local circuit.
I didn't want to be the archetypal sponging brother-in-law so I didn't go into acting when I got to the States. I thought 'No I'll go to school and then I'll be an English teacher that'll be fun.' But I was horrible as a teacher. As hard as I tried I just couldn't inspire those kids to take an interest in Milton and Shakespeare and Donne.
I thought well of course Kinsey absolutely adored teaching. He was a wonderful teacher. So these kids really inspired me. So that was a clue I hung onto. He loved young people he absolutely loved them. And he loved teaching them and trying to help them.
The true teacher defends his pupils against his own personal influence. He inspires self-trust. He guides their eyes from himself to the spirit that quickens him. He will have no disciples.
You will find that the woman who is really kind to dogs is always one who has failed to inspire sympathy in men.
Well I believe that the depth of your struggle can determine the height of your success. I was inspired to come out of everything I've been through and end up in a place where I never thought that I would be.

An America that inspires hope in its ideals must complement an America that inspires awe in its strength.

First I want to pay tribute to Diana myself. She was an exceptional and gifted human being. In good times and bad she never lost her capacity to smile and laugh nor to inspire others with her warmth and kindness. I admired and respected her - for her energy and commitment to others and especially for her devotion to her two boys.
Fashion is the science of appearances and it inspires one with the desire to seem rather than to be.
