Inspire Quotes

First find the man in yourself if you will inspire manliness in others.

Amos Bronson Alcott

Great leadership does not mean running away from reality. Sometimes the hard truths might just demoralize the company, but at other times sharing difficulties can inspire people to take action that will make the situation better.

John Kotter

The two qualities which chiefly inspire regard and affection [are] that a thing is your own and that it is your only one.

Aristotle

The pleasure of love is in loving. We are much happier in the passion we feel than in that we inspire.

Duc de La Rochefoucauld

Set Your Goals High Enough To Inspire You And Low Enough To Encourage You.

unknown

The best way to inspire fresh thoughts is to seal the envelope.

Unknown

Mountaintops inspire leaders but valleys mature them.

Winston Churchill

Books are for nothing but to inspire.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Leaders establish the vision for the future and set the strategy for getting there; they cause change. They motivate and inspire others to go in the right direction and they, along with everyone else, sacrifice to get there.

John Kotter

Always direct your thoughts to those truths that will give you confidence, hope, joy, love, thanksgiving, and turn away your mind from those that inspire you with fear, sadness, depression.

Bertrand Wilbertforce

My theme is to make a difference right here in my own neighborhood. I don't have to fight the whole world. If I do well where I am, it will make a difference in the rest of the world... People want to do and to be better. They need inspiration to change and to try to make a difference. They need a catalyst to inspire faith and to encourage them to take a risk...(once a Mexican-American migrant farm worker)

Esau Herrera

I have found that a large percentage of the population operates under a dangerous illusion - the illusion that the world's problems are too big and too complex for one individual to make a difference. But I believe one person can make a difference. My dad always told me, 'We're here to inspire each other, to bring out the best in each other, and the only way we can do that is to care about each other.'

Ray Gatchalian

Always direct your thoughts to those truths that will give you confidence, hope, joy, love, thanksgiving, and turn away your mind from those that inspire you with fear, sadness, depression.

Bertrand Wilbertforce

Before you can inspire with emotion, you must be swamped with it yourself. Before you can move their tears, your own must flow. To convince them, you must yourself believe.

Winston Churchill

People are not lazy. They simply have impotent goals -- that is, goals that do not inspire them.

Tony Robbins

Human affairs inspire in noble hearts only two feelingsˇadmiration or pity.

Anatole France

We wish to inspire the preference we feel; love must be mutual.

Elizabeth Rapaport

Always direct your thoughts to those truths that will give you confidence, hope, joy, love, thanksgiving, and turn away your mind from those that inspire you with fear, sadness, depression.

Bertrand Wilbertforce

In general I might agree with you: women should not contemplate war, should not weigh tactics impartially, or evade the word enemy, or view both sides and denounce nothing. Women should march for peace, or hand out white feathers to arouse bravery, spit themselves on bayonets to protect their babies, whose skulls will be split anyway, or, having been raped repeatedly, hang themselves with their own hair. These are the functions that inspire general comfort. That, and the knitting of socks for the troops and a sort of moral cheerleading. Also: mourning the dead. Sons, lovers, and so forth. All the killed children.

Margaret Eleanor Atwood

We are living in a time of trouble and bewilderment, in a time when none of us can foresee or foretell the future. But surely it is in times like these, when so much that we cherish is threatened or in jeopardy, that we are impelled all the more to strengthen our inner resources, to turn to the things that have no news value because they will be the same to-morrow that they were to-day and yesterday the things that last, the things that the wisest, the most farseeing of our race and kind have been inspired to utter in forms that can inspire ourselves in turn.

Robert Laurence Binyon

We can be tempted to make the life of faith a matter of mere sentiment, thus blunting its power to inspire a consistent vision of the world and a rigorous dialogue with the many other visions competing for the minds and hearts of our contemporaries.

Pope Benedict XVI

One has never known a good man to whom dogs were not dear; but many of the best women have no such fondness. You will find that the woman who is really kind to dogs is always one who has failed to inspire sympathy in men. For the attractive woman, dogs are mere dumb and restless brutes possibly dangerous, certainly soulless. Yet will coquetry teach her to caress any dog in the presence of a man enslaved by her.

Sir Henry Maximilian Beerbohm

So let God know what you're doing just by doing it or feel good about yourself. But don't rely on men and women to inspire you to do good because we will probably often fail you with our own imperfections! We all should be trying to improve ourselves, regardless of how much better off or worse off we are than the person next to us, because we can all get better.
