Survey: Sources of inspiration?

What movie, song, quote, story, work of literature, or anything else has given you the most inspiration and/or motivation throughout your life?

- Mine is the video game "Kingdom Hearts". The struggle the main character went through in that game just for one person really said a lot to me. It also had a strong message to me of "Good prevails over evil, so choose what you think is right and go for it". Not saying it still does, but it just goes to show that you can find inspiration in the weirdest of places.


Ten, if you meant that you served in Vietnam then I have the upmost respect for you, and will give you ten points, but you didn't specify.

    Movie(s)- It's a wonderful Life.

    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

    Song- Fly Like A bird by Mariah Carey

    (I don't even like Mariah carey but song makes me cry)

    Quote- "I didn't come out of no cereal box" Bob Dylan

    Work of Literature- Tuesdays with Morrie, it made a lot of people I know cry but for me, I already knew everything in there, but it helps me when times are hard and I loose myself.

    My Uncle Mac- He reflects light, most amazing person in the world, served in Vietnam, but has a doctrine in theology, and is the happiest person you'll ever meet.

    I saw that you said no one answered your question, and got sidetracked and didn''t even answer the other one.=)

    I really like the line "this is your life, it doesn't wait for you to get back up on your feet" from the movie "A lot like love"

    Plus, i dont know if this counts but saying this to myself helps me decide and live better:

    "i get to live once, how did i make today worth living for?"
