We all feel inspired in one way or another, right? I think so. Each of us has the ability to inspire, and be inspired. I believe inspiration is what happens when you experience something that is profound to you. Such as nature in raw form, as giant sequoia redwoods tower over you with a cool ocean breeze gracing your skin. Or perhaps it’s standing witness to a human being walking through the air from one mountain edge to another, hundreds of feet up in the sky, balancing on a narrow 1″ webbing. Sometimes it’s as simple as hearing the stories of a fellow Earth traveler. I have gathered for you a list of 15 quotes that spoke to me. Let them pass through you, warm your soul, inspire you or whatever may be…

The roses said: You do not have to choose. ”  ― Robin McKinley, Sunshine
