inspiration

A Quote by Loyd J. Ericson on approval, foolishness, god, idealism, inspiration, judgment, meaning, solution, spirit, and spirituality

If the new-found ideal solution to an issue is inspired of God, it will often not make sense to some persons upon whom we have occasionally relied for approval - persons who are sometimes well meaning, but not inspired. The Apostle Paul wrote, "The natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man." 1 Corinthians 2:14,15

A Quote by Loyd J. Ericson on action, acting, conscience, control, decisions, direction, friendship, idealism, ideas, inspiration, lust, money, popularity, thinking, and words

When one chooses to be directed by his conscientious decisions - thinking and acting according to his divinely inspired ideals - he will be acting for himself with thoughts, words and actions that satisfy his conscience. When unbalanced, a person is likely to become controlled by friends, fashions, public opinion, popular individuals or ideas, carnal lusts of the flesh, or by other externals such as money and things.

A Quote by Lord Lyttleton on chastity, corruption, death, heaven, inspiration, thought, and wishes

For his chaste Muse employ'd her heaven-taught lyre None but the noblest passions to inspire, Not one immoral, one corrupted thought, One line which, dying, he could wish to blot.

A Quote by Lee Iacocca on inspiration, motivation, people, and work

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.

A Quote by John Music on action, direction, inspiration, leadership, managers, motivation, people, and work

Many managers know how to get things done through people, to turn people into tools, but not how to direct them, inspire them or motivate them. Leadership provides a scenario to the people they're leading. People are willing to work their butts off if you give them an objective, show them how to reach it, and prove that you mean it through action and consistency.

A Quote by John Milton on choice, day, earth, fatherhood, immortality, inspiration, judgment, seasons, sons, time, virtue, and wine

Lawrence, of virtuous father virtuous son, Now that the fields are dank, and ways are mire, Where shall we sometimes meet, and by the fire Help waste a sullen day, what may be won From the hard season gaining? Time will run On smoother, till Favonius re-inspire The frozen earth, and clothe in fresh attire The lily and rose, that neither sowed nor spun. What neat repast shall feast us, light and choice, Of Attic taste, with wine, whence we may rise To hear the lute well touched, or artful voice Warble immortal notes and Tuscan air? He who of those delights can judge, and spare To interpose them oft, is not unwise.

John Milton (1608 - 1674)

We should always pray for help, but we should always listen for inspiration and impressions to proceed in ways different from those we may have thought of.

A Quote by John Dewey on action, experience, faith, future, inspiration, interest, possibility, reality, relationships, religion, and solidarity

The future of religion is connected with the possibility of developing a faith in the possibilities of human experience and human relationships that will create a vital sense of the solidarity of human interests and inspire action to make that sense a reality.
