inspiration

A Quote by Alice M. Fellinger on feeling, god, heaven, inspiration, planning, and work

We visited your temple, an inspired work of God! And felt that he was with us, as through the grounds we trod. We can't explain the feeling, that swept from head to toe, With the organ softly playing, when at last we turned to go; But we knew that in his heaven, God has planned a wondrous sight, We had a glimpse of heaven, when we visited last night!

A Quote by Alfred Armand Montapert on genius, humanity, ideas, inspiration, mind, spirit, universe, and world

The finest piece of mechanism in all the universe is the brain of man. The wise person develops his brain, and opens his mind to the genius and spirit of the world's great ideas. He will feel inspired with the purest and noblest thoughts that have ever animated the spirit of humanity.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on discovery, intuition, solution, consciousness, inspiration, and divine guidance

The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it intuition or what you will, and the solution comes to you and you don't know how or why.

A Quote by Adlai Ewing Stevenson on inspiration, learning, meetings, quotations, and style

Adlai Stevenson, himself a notable speaker, often reminisced about his last meeting with Churchill. I asked him on whom or what he had based his oratorical style. Churchill replied, "It was an American statesman who inspired me and taught me how to use every note of the human voice like an organ." Winston then to my amazement started to quote long excerpts from Bourke Cockran's speeches of 60 years before. "He was my model," Churchill said. "I learned from him how to hold thousands in thrall."

A Quote by Abraham Lincoln on blessings, camping, citizenship, courage, day, desires, freedom, generations, god, harmony, health, humanity, humility, inspiration, labor, life, men, nations, observation, peace, population, posterity, praise, resolution, r

It has pleased Almighty God to prolong our national life another year, . . . to favor as well our citizens in their homes as our soldiers in their camps, and our sailors on the rivers and seas, with unusual health. He has largely augmented our free population by emancipation and by immigration, while he has opened to us new sources of wealth, and has corned* the labor of our working-men in every department of industry with abundant rewards. Moreover, he has been pleased to animate and inspire our minds and hearts with fortitude, courage, and resolution sufficient for the great trial . . . into which we have been brought by our adherence as a nation to the cause of freedom and humanity. . . . Now, therefore, I . . . do hereby appoint and set apart the last Thursday in November next as a day which I desire to be observed by all my fellow-citizens, wherever they may be then, as a day of thanksgiving and praise to Almighty God, the beneficent Creator and Ruler of the Universe. And I do further recommend to my fellow-citizens aforesaid, that on that occasion they do reverently humble themselves in the dust, and from thence offer up penitent and fervent prayers and supplications to the great Disposer of events for a return of the inestimable blessings of peace, union, and harmony throughout the land which it has pleased him to assign as a dwelling-place for ourselves and for our posterity throughout all generations. *preserved

A Quote by Abraham Lincoln on beginning, god, hope, ideas, inspiration, labor, men, mind, principles, and work

It is better then, to save the work while it is begun. You have done the labor; maintain it - keep it. If men choose to serve you, go with them; but as you have made up your organization upon principle, stand by it; for as surely as God reigns over you, and has inspired your mind, and given you a sense of propriety, and continues to give you hope, so surely will you still cling to these ideas, and you will at last come back after your wanderings, merely to do your work over again.
