Finding inspiration within me and around

I am a quote addict. i will always have one on the desktop and one at the workstation. Quotes simply inspire me to work harder and a little more harder. But there are times when i get fed up with them as well and love to laze around and sleep the whole day. But then guilt pangs surface and i back at my lapi looking for a new quote to charge up my doodling spirits. The one quote that i chanced upon recently was by Marie Curie.

Here's it goes.

There are times when i doubt my writing skills. In all those uncertain times i seek refuge in this quote. Everyone is gifted with something, she says and one must persevere and above all have the confidence to achieve that thing at whatever cost. Truly, one must go after one's goals with a steely resolve and give all that we've got to achieve it.

No Arms. No Legs. NO WORRIES! (just key in these words in google to find a video of this amazing man)
I saw the pic of Nick Vujicic in Ahmedabad Times a decade back and since then this pic has stayed in the recesses of my mind. . 

 Nick has no legs and arms, but he has been able to inspire the world with his beautiful words. There is no adversity that can stop you, and Nick is the perfect example of that. He shares his happiness and motivates those who are constantly worried and dealing with life’s challenges in the most joyous way. 

I bring this man and his deeds to my mind whenever i have drowned myself in negative thoughts, whenever i'have drained of all my positive energy. 

If he can, why can't i.
