13 Quotes to Inspire:

1. "Creativity comes from trust. Trust your instincts. And never hope more that you work." Rita Mae Brown

2. "I am not afraid ... I was born to do this." Joan of Arc

3. "It takes a great courage to stand up to your enemies, but even more to stand up to your friends." J K Rowling

4. "Adversity is just change that we haven't adapted ourselves to yet." Aimee Mullins

5. "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." Maya Angelou

6. "Curiosity about life in all of it's aspects, I think, is still the secret of great people." Leo Burnett

7. "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." Marianne Williamson

8. "A life spent making mistakes is not only more honourable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing." George Bernard Shaw

9. "What you do speaks so loud I can't hear what you say." Ralph Waldo Emerson

10. "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the things you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour... Explore. Dream." Mark Twain

11. "If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude." Maya Angelou

12. "Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive." Howard Thurman

13. "To live a creative life we must loose our fear of being wrong." Joseph Chilton Pearce
