My favorite quote was given voice by Jonathan Swift: "May you live every day of your life." I find it incredibly inspiring - a reminder to truly make the most of every single moment. Life is an activity, not a filler. We should spend our handful of moments creating, thriving, flourishing - not waiting. Not for anything.

Everybody is creative. Everybody has potential to make something from nothing, just in different ways. Everybody, however, needs motivation - something to plant the ideas that turn into something wonderful. 

What quote inspires you the most? What stirs you to create something new, beautiful, and uniquely yours? Leave your inspiration in the comments!

    I love inspirational quotes as well and your blog is great! I'm so glad I happened upon it (thank you craftgawker for sharing it. One of my favorite quotes is by Mahatma Gahndi "You must be the change you want to see in the world."

  3. As Mr. St. Laurant once said, "fashion fades; style is eternal." This very quote inspired my hanger tattoo. It takes years to develop your personal style and this quote reminds me that there is always room for growth and to never stop looking for inspiration.

  4. "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed individuals can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
    - Margaret Mead
