You don’t ever want to give up your power, and one of the ways this happens is by thinking you don’t have power in the first place. The powers that be may be in place, but there’s nothing saying that you can’t also wield your power. When you embrace the fact that you have inherent power, you’ll find that you’re never without it, even in the face of adversity, or when confronted by those that seem to be more powerful than you. Always know that you have power and never give it up.
Instead of pondering what the best strategy is to get something done, you just do it. When you focus on getting it done you’ll find ways to get it done better as you’re getting it done.

When you get into the mindset of just doing it, no matter what it involves, you’ll find that the tasks become easier and everything flows.
“You know the world is going crazy when the best rapper is a white guy, the best golfer is a black guy, the tallest guy in the NBA is Chinese, the Swiss hold the America's Cup, France is accusing the U.S. of arrogance, Germany doesn't want to go to war, and the three most powerful men in America are named "Bush", "Dick", and "Colin." Need I say more?”

Even when pain is your teacher.”
“Maman told me that every time you smile, a very tiny bit of the smile stays stuck to your face, so as you get older and older your face starts to show all the tiny bits of all your smiles and you look like you are smiling all the time, even when you are just thinking about what to have for breakfast.

That way when you are old you have a very frowny face and look cross all the time and people are scared of you.” – Claire King
Here’s a life lesson that you would be wise to internalize. If you want to greet the world in a fearless way, if you want to be independent, and be victorious in the quest to achieve your goals and dreams, you have to believe you have what it takes first. It’s easy to think that you can have these things without belief, but it starts with belief and you can’t allow anything to come into your life until you believe it first. Memorize this quote, read it everyday until it becomes a part of you, and you’ll see it unfold in your life.

Thank you for these quotes Ellesse. I know it has been quite a while since this was posted but I just stumbled across them and I thought all of these quotes were inspiring. Unfortunately, I did not get the time to read all of the comments today but I hope to change that soon. I would have several quotes to tell you but when I started to think of inspirational quotes I could only think of the one that has helped me through some difficult times in life. I don’t know if it is considered inspirational, but it was to me. In fact, it was so inspirational that my high school graduation present from my mother was a ring engraved with this quote:
Do not think that you can forget about the paying attention to your another half after marriage. You should always care about your love, as it is some kind of work that should be performed for your relationships to be safe from breaking. Yep, only feeling the emotions is not enough, you need to express them! And morning is the perfect time to remind your beautiful wife that she is still sexy, pretty and adorable.
Guess that everyone occasionally has these days when everything seems irritating and annoying and all one can hear is the phrase: “He/she must have gotten up on the wrong side of the bed.” Being enthusiastic about the upcoming working day might not be easy for some people. That is why it is essential to get into the right mood starting the morning.
The value of a smile… It costs nothing, but creates much. It enriches those who receive, without impoverishing those who give. It happens in a flash and the memory of it sometimes lasts forever. None are so rich they can get along without it, and none so poor but are richer for its benefits. It creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in a business, and is the countersign of friends. Dale Carnegie
It’s alright if storms are upon you, for they’ll teach you lots about how to sail your ship. Instead of hoping against hope for calm waters, it’s better to embrace the challenges life brings and learn how to handle them. Life is going to present you with a series of events and circumstances that may not be to your liking, and how you deal with them will determine what you get next. Once you learn how to sail your ship, you’ll be able to navigate future challenges even better, and recover more quickly.
All women should be feminists if this quote is the definition of what it means to be a feminist. We should all see women as smart, gifted, and tough, and it’s very telling that she has to use this as what feminists think. Does this mean that it’s not a view shared by everyone? For so long women had to fight just to be considered equals in society and get the right to vote. Even today in America women earn less than men in the same jobs and roles. Worldwide women are still viewed as second class citizens. Why? Let’s all adopt the viewpoint in this quote.
This is a great quote about beauty because it doesn’t have anything to do with physical appearance. She’s saying that true beauty comes from the ability to be yourself, no matter what sort of person you are. In our society so much emphasis is placed on looks that we’ve lost sight of what real beauty is. There isn’t just one ideal when it comes to beauty as far as looks go, but what she’s saying here is that there is one ideal for beauty, and that’s to be yourself no matter what.
Anytime you start to get caught up in the way others think about you, remember this quote. You don’t need to think about what others think of you, and there’s a lot of reasons why you shouldn’t waste time thinking about it. There’s no way to know exactly what they think of you, and there’s no way to control what they think. The only thing you can control is the things you think about, and when you stop wasting time on thinking about people that don’t matter, you can focus more on the things that are truly important.
“Well, it seems to me that the best relationships - the ones that last - are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship. You know, one day you look at the person and you see something more than you did the night before. Like a switch has been flicked somewhere. And the person who was just a friend is... suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with.”
