inspiration

A Quote by Henry Eyring on feeling, greatness, history, imagination, inspiration, men, nature, people, perfection, and struggle

Let us consider the nature of true greatness in men. The people who can catch hold of men's minds and feelings and inspire them to do things bigger than themselves are the people who are remembered in history. . . . those who stir feelings and imagination and make men struggle toward perfection.

Henry Eyring (1901 - 19)

A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on inspiration, losing, and poetry

Our moments of inspiration are not lost though we have no particular poem to show for them; for those experiences have left an indelible impression, and we are ever and anon reminded of them.

A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on inspiration, love, miracles, and past

It is strange to talk of miracles, revelations, inspiration, and the like, as things past, while love remains.

A Quote by Henry B. Eyring on beginning, blessings, books, exercise, experience, faith, gifts, god, gratitude, inspiration, language, memory, mind, prayer, privacy, spirit, and time

You could have an experience with the gift of the Holy Ghost today. You could begin a private prayer with thanks. You could start to count your blessings, and then pause for a moment. If you exercise faith, and with the gift of the Holy Ghost, you will find that memories of other blessings will flood into your mind. If you begin to express gratitude for each of them, your prayer may take a little longer than usual. Remembrance will come. And so will gratitude. You could try the same thing as you write an entry in your book of remembrance. The Holy Ghost has helped with that since the beginning of time. You remember in the record of Moses it says: "And a book of remembrance was kept, in the which was recorded, in the language of Adam, for it was given unto as many as called upon God to write by the spirit of inspiration." (Moses 6:5.)

A Quote by Helen Adams Keller on achievement, ambition, character, inspiration, quiet, soul, success, suffering, and vision

Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.

A Quote by Harold G. Hillam on fatherhood, inspiration, temptation, and worry

I will ever be grateful for the wise counsel of a strong and inspired father when he taught, "If you always say no to the first temptation, you will not have to worry if you will be able to say no to the second one."

A Quote by H. Gordon Selfridge on advertising, business, confidence, difficulty, force, guests, inspiration, principles, quality, service, spirit, and understanding

Get the confidence of the public and you will have no difficulty in getting their patronage. Inspire your whole force with the right spirit of service; encourage every sign of the true spirit. So display and advertise wares that customers shall buy with understanding. Treat them as guests when they come and when they go, whether or not they buy. Give them all that can be given fairly, on the principle that to him that giveth shall be given. Remember always that the recollection of quality remains long after the price is forgotten. Then your business will prosper by a natural process.

A Quote by Gwendolyn Brooks on education, inspiration, justice, schools, and writers

A writer should get as much education as possible, but just going to school is not enough; if it were, all owners of doctorates would be inspired writers.

A Quote by George Albert Smith on affliction, blessings, children, desires, duty, earth, enemies, faith, fatherhood, feeling, flattery, force, friendship, good, happiness, idealism, inspiration, jealousy, joy, life, love, mankind, needs, people, privileg

A PERSONAL CREED I would be a friend to the friendless and find joy in ministering to the needs of the poor. I would visit the sick and afflicted and inspire in them a desire for faith to be healed. I would teach the truth to the understanding and blessing of all mankind. I would seek out the erring one and try to win him back to a righteous and a happy life. I would not seek to force people to live up to my ideals, but rather love them into doing the thing that is right. I would live with the masses and help to solve their problems that their earth life may be happy. I would avoid the publicity of high positions and discourage flattery of thoughtless friends. I would not knowingly wound the feeling of any, not even one who may have wronged me, but would seek to do him good and make him my friend. I would overcome the tendency to selfishness and jealousy and rejoice in the successes of all the children of my Heavenly Father. I would not be an enemy to any living soul. Knowing that the Redeemer of mankind has offered to the world the only plan that will fully develop us and make us happy here and hereafter, I feel it not only a duty, but also a blessed privilege to disseminate the truth.

George Smith (1870 - 1951)
