Rita Mae Brown
Hope is the dream of the waking man.
Just don't give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there's love and inspiration, I don't think you can go wrong.
When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.
Charles Austin Beard
The courage to imagine the otherwise is our greatest resource.
Daniel J. Boorstin
You ask me where I get my ideas. That I cannot tell you with certainty. They come unsummoned, directly, indirectly - I could seize them with my hands - out in open air, in the woods, while walking, in the silence of the nights, at dawn, excited by moods which are translated by the poet into words, by me into tunes that sound and roar and storm about me till I have set them down in notes.
Ludwig van Beethoven
First, have a definite, clear practical ideal; a goal, an objective. Second, have the necessary means to achieve your ends; wisdom, money, materials, and methods. Third, adjust all your means to that end.
Reflect upon your present blessings - of which every man has many - not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.
Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.
Thomas Alva Edison
The torpid artist seeks inspiration at any cost, by virtue or by vice, by friend or by fiend, by prayer or by wine.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
IMBECILITY, n. A kind of divine inspiration, or sacred fire affecting censorious critics of this dictionary.
Ambrose Gwinett Bierce
The courage to imagine the otherwise is our greatest resource, adding color and suspense to all our life.
Daniel J. Boorstin
We give our lives to that which we give our time. I have learned that it is very difficult, if not impossible to unclutter one’s life by starting at the top of the pile with the idea that the solution is to just get things sorted and better organized. It is nice to get better organized, but that is not enough. Much has to be discarded. We must actually get rid of it. To do this we need to develop a list of basics, a list of those things that are indispensable to our mortal welfare and happiness and our eternal salvation. This list must follow the gospel pattern and contain the elements needed for our sanctification and perfection. It must be the product of inspiration and prayerful judgment between the things we really need and thins we just want. It should separate need from greed. It must be our best understanding of those thins that are important as opposed to those things that are just interesting.
William R Bradford
Without craftsmanship, inspiration is a mere reed shaken in the wind.
The artist must raise the cup of his vision aloft to the gods in the high hope that they will pour into it the sweet mellow wine of inspiration.
