inspirational Quotes


“You may only be someone in the world, but to someone else, you may be the world.” Feel better now? That’s the beauty of inspirational quotes. They can lift you up, challenge you to forge ahead against all odds and achieve the impossible. Even in the face of almost certain defeat, some of the greatest people in history have overcome adversity to achieve remarkable things. Perhaps it was the inspirational quotes of others that drove them to greatness. And perhaps, their words will inspire you to do the same. Reference.com Definition of inspirational

"I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me. I love you for the part of me that you bring out." Roy Croft
The poem this is attributed to, by Roy Croft, is nearly identical to a German-language poem by Eric Fried titled "Ich liebe dich" ("I Love You"). Little is known about either poem, so it is difficult to say if Croft actually wrote this poem or if he translated Fried's poem and ended up with the credit. Often the quote is attributed to "Anonymous" or Elizabeth Browning, as well. Add Category or Author

Releasing 23 comedy albums, hosting 14 HBO specials and authoring three best sellers during his lifetime, comedian George Carlin helped define modern stand-up routines with his rapid fire commentary on politics, race, hypocrisy and society. His command of the English language allowed him to dissect its nuances and oddities, questioning everything from the meaning of time to getting into an airplane instead of getting on a plane™.
