- "Art arises from loss. I wish this weren't the case. I wish that every time I met a new woman and she rocked my world, I was inspired to write my ass off. But that is not what happens. What happens is we lie around in bed eating chocolate and screwing. Art is what happens when things don't work out, when you're licking your wounds. Art is, to a larger extent than people would like to think, a productive licking of the wounds." - Steve Almond

- "Picturesque meant - he decided after careful observation of the scenerey that inspired Twoflower to use the word - that the landscape was horribly precipitous.

Tourist, Rincewind had decided, mean 'idiot'." - Terry Pratchett

Inspired Quotes For Her

It allows me to have real moments with my fans. I just want the night to be filled with good energy, love, and for people to leave the show happy." - Rapsody

- "If the Bible is not the Word of God and inspired, the whole of Christendom for 1800 years has been under an immense delusion; half the human race has been cheated and deceived, and churches are monuments of folly.

No man, in his sober senses, can fail to see that the whole subject demands most serious attention." - J. C. Ryle

- "A significant event for me was learning Hank Williams, reconnecting with his music's simplicity, which inspired me to inhabit the same territory.

Each new subatomic particle, every unexpected object, produces delight and wonderment. In constructing their theories, physicists are frequently guided by arcane concepts of elegance in the belief that the universe is intrinsically beautiful." - Paul Davies
