Inspiration Corner

A sublime selection of some of the best words from some of the best people. Need that little mental pep talk, a quick insight into some of life’s intricacies, or some wise, unflinching words to inspire? Well here are a few, straight from the mouths of some of the most labyrinthian, poetic, and expressive minds there ever were – or are!

Remember, information is not knowledge; knowledge is not wisdom; wisdom is not truth; truth is not beauty; beauty is not love; love is not music; music is the best. – Frank Zappa 

You’ve got to learn to leave the table, when love’s no longer being served. – Nina Simone

 

Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night. – Edgar Allen Poe

Humanity takes itself too seriously. It is the world’s original sin. If cavemen had known how to laugh, history would have been different. – Chuck Klosterman

Soul is when you take a song and make it a part of you — a part that’s so true, so real, people think it must have happened to you. … It’s like electricity — we don’t really know what it is, do we? But it’s a force that can light a room. Soul is like electricity, like a spirit, a drive, a power. – Ray Charles

 

My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour, and some style. – Maya Angelou

An intellectual says a simple thing in a hard way. An artist says a hard thing in a simple way. – Charles Bukowski

 

We can spend our lives letting the world tell us who we are. Sane or insane. Saints or sex addicts. Heroes or victims. Letting history tell us how good or bad we are. Letting our past decide our future. Or we can decide for ourselves. And maybe it’s our job to invent something better. – Chuck Palaniuk

 

Tomorrow belongs to those who can hear it coming. – David Bowie
