A little bit of inspiration...

When we hear words that inspire us, we frantically jot them down in our phones, write them on sticky notes, and scribble them in our journals. We find especially in these winter days, the power of a couple of words spoken in truth, is enough to get us through a blah moment.

Here's a few wise words that have inspired us lately:

"Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something they feel a little guilty, because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after awhile. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things." Steve Jobs

"What good is the warmth of summer without the cold of winter to give it sweetness" John Steinbeck

"Everybody born comes from the Creator trailing wisps of glory. We come from the Creator with creativity. I think that each one of us is born with creativity." Dr Maya Angelou 

"I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says: 'Go to sleep darlings, until the summer comes again'." Lewis Carroll

"Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep." Scott Adams 

"When we are angry or depressed in our creativity, we have misplaced our power. We have allowed someone else to determine our worth and then we are angry at being undervalued." Julia Cameron 

"Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk by the fire: it is the time for home." Edith Sitwell

"Creativity is more than just being plain different. Anybody can be weird, that's easy. What's hard is being as simple as Bach. Making the simple, awesomely simple, that's creativity." Charles Mingus 

"Creativity is piercing the mundane to find the marvelous." Bill Moyers 

"We must never stop dreaming. Dreams provide nourishment for the soul, just as a good meal does for the body." Paulo Cohelo 

"God is really another artist. He invented the giraffe, the elephant and the cat. He has no real style. He just goes on trying other things." Pablo Picasso

"The saints were not superhuman. They were people who loved God in their hearts, and shared this joy with others." Pope Francis
