Inspiration.The action or power of moving the intellect or emotions.
Some people are inspired by fear. "If you don't do your (homework, job) I will (flunk, fire) you." But fear is such a terrible way to inspire others. They never do more than is necessary. Some are inspired by their parents, movie stars, sports figures, people that they want to become. This is a better way providing the inspiring person is a good example. However, the best inspiration is Divine inspiration. Look back at the famous people of the past and you will see Divine inspiration at work in their lives. Ask yourself: "What inspires me?" If you can't answer, look for your own personal vision, the one thing that keeps you going when everything else is in chaos. Look for love.
"No one was ever great without some portion of divine inspiration."
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Roman statesman, lawyer, scholar, writer and orator 106-43 BC
