Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I realized that it was not by wisdom that poets write their poetry, but by a kind of nature or inspiration, such as you find in seers and prophets; for these also say many beautiful things, but do not know anything of what they say.
Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.
Inspiration doesn’t come from nowhere. You don’t lay in a dark black room and suddenly a burst of light and the hand of the lord comes out and says “here, have a song”
I love the mix of people who hang out at nightclubs now. Their individuality is an inspiration to me. The music they listen to, the clothes they wear and the way they wear them defines a street style that I love.
Ask for nothing less than inspiration.
To all that come to this happy place, welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past, and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams, and the hard facts that have created America... with hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world.
Genius is 1 percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration.
Thomas A. Edison
When inspiration does not come to me, I go halfway to meet it.
Inspiration comes of working every day.
My vision is clear and far. I could almost believe in God. But" - and his voice changed and the light went out of his face - "what is this condition in which I find myself? This joy of living? This exultation of life? This inspiration, I may well call it? It comes when there is nothing wrong with one's digestion, when the stomach is in trim and and his appetite has an edge, and all goes well.
You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.
