Passion and inspiration

Writing is my way of life...
Be inspired...

Or at least that's what I'm trying to do... Be inspired...

As you can see, I haven't updated my blog in a while. "Cyber cobwebs" are beginning to form on my blog page. So, I decided to search google for some images and quotes that hopefully might inspire me. And this is what I came up with:

"If there is no passion in your life, then have you really lived? Find your passion, whatever it may be. Become it, and let it become you and you will find great things happen FOR you, TO you and BECAUSE of you." -T. Alan Armstrong

Inspirational enough? Hmm... Better keep going...

"Above all, be true to yourself, and if you cannot put your heart in it, take yourself out of it." -Unknown

Ooh, I like the multi-coloured lipstick. Although it'd be weird to see someone wearing that in real life...

"We cannot be sure of having something to live for unless we are willing to die for it."
-Che Guavara

Oh! I found more!!

"There is no end. There is no beginning. There is only the passion of life." -Federico Fellini

I really like this one...

"When work, commitment and pleasure all become one and you reach that deep well where passion lives, nothing is impossible." -Unknown

This is nice. So positive... So... happy...

"A great leader's courage to fulfill his vision comes from passion, not position." -John Maxwell

Ooo... Vibrant... Yet... So dark...

"Passion, it lies in all of us, sleeping... waiting... and though unwanted... unbidden... it will stir... open its jaws and howl. It speaks to us... guides us... passion rules us all, and we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments. The joy of love... the clarity of hatred... and the ecstasy of grief, It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion maybe we'd know some kind of peace... but we would be hollow... Empty rooms shuttered and dank. Without passion we'd be truly dead." -Joss Whedon.

I like her eyes. The blue is like pool water at night illuminated by light. Get my drift?

"Be still when you have nothing to say; when genuine passion moves you, say what you've got to say, and say it hot." -D.H. Lawrence

Nice and simple...

"If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins." Benjamin Franklin

Anime has always been one of my many inspirations.

"The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire." -Field Marshal Ferdinand Foch

Hot? Lol.

"Passion spins around love and I am always dizzy around you." -Albany Bach Reid

Cool eye shadow...

"One person with passion is better than forty people merely interested." -E.M. Foster

Awesome! I'm beginning to feel something sparking...

"Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it with all your might. Put your whole soul in it. Stamp it with your personality. Be active, be energetic and faithful, and you will accomplish your object. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Who doesn't love iPods?
"Passion and purpose go hand in hand. When you discover your purpose, you will normally find it's something you're tremendously passionate about." -Steve Pavlina

Let's try something totally different now. Something out-of-this-worldly beautiful...

"There is no greatness without passion to be great, whether it's the aspiration of an athlete or an artist, a scientist, a parent or a businessperson." -Anthony Robbins

Okay, I know this doesn't really have anything to do with passion and inspiration. But it does subtly... I mean, one day when I can write romance, I can refer to this!

"Love. Fall in love and stay in love. Write only what you love, and love what you write. The key word is love. You have to get up in the morning and write something you love, something you live for." -Ray Bradbury

I guess it's about time I summed things up!

"Nothing great in the world has ever been accomplished without passion." -Georg Wilhelm

I think I am going to live by that quote from now on... So... What's your passion?

P.S. Did you get any inspiration from any of those quotes or pictures? Which are your favourite ones?
