Daily Dose of Inspirational Quotes

Daily Dose of Inspirational Quotes 1

One spark can start a fire. Every revolution starts with a voice, and every great achievement begins with one person, and one idea. Daily Dose of Inspirational Quotes is about sharing thoughts that inspire you to “be the change you want to see in the world” – Mahatma Gandhi

Inspiration is the spark that can set the world blazing. It drives the exploited to take a stand, the seeker to discover, and brings out the best in people. Few are born with it. Others pray for it. For last few years I have found inspiration in many places, from the lyrics of a song, or a moving scene from a movie. One thing for sure, or probably the written word, inspiration is what drives the world.

We suggest that you bookmark this webpage, or take a print out, and refer to it for Daily Dose of Inspirational throughout the year. Share it with everyone you know who can use some inspiration. These are the quotes that have inspired me the most–please leave your comments at the bottom of this article and don’t forget to share your favorite inspirational quote.
