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 oneís 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.
It has all the contortions of the sibyl without the inspiration.
There never was a great soul that did not have some divine inspiration.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Our Christian civilization, as well as our political democracy, has
developed through the inspiration of a high faith in man, the common man. He
is the sovereign of the State, not because he is always wise, but because he
and his fellow citizens are the State.
Franklin P. Cole.
Love is so powerful because being loved causes one to love oneself. Nothing
contributes to the self-image more than being loved by another. When the
words, "I love you" are expressed to you for the first time, your world
blossoms, your heart glows with inspiration, confidence and thoughts of the
mountains you can move. Itís more than an emotional kick; suddenly you like
yourself more than you ever have before.
