Sometimes just a few words said in the right way will inspire ordinary people to do extraordinary things.
There are people that have a gift for it and those are people, rightfully so, that we revere.
We don’t really know all the things that Joan of Arc said to become the powerful influence she became. But she inspired men who were inherently misogynistic to follow her into battle and to win. I think part of what makes some people the great leaders that they are is a passion for their cause and a desire for leading others in that cause. Joan’s passion was so powerful that it led to her death. Many others have done this in history.
I was looking at some inspiring quotes today to get some ideas for a blog post and I just couldn’t decide which ones were more inspiring. So I just made a list of them.[mlsp-cta campaign=”buildmyebook” popup=”false” layout=”standard” align=”left”]
The very last one is from a song written for members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as they struggled with cold, depression, fear and loss after being driven from their homes by bigoted mobs. I find it very inspiring just as it was 0ver 100 years ago.
I’m sure you’ll recognize a lot of these quotes. Some are very popular but I never get tired of them. In the comments, I hope you’ll leave your own favorite inspiring quotes.
