We're Lookin' for a Little Inspiration

This photo graces the wall of a home office and is a fantastic reminder that some dreams take awhile to come to fruition. And that really, "some of the greatest achievements were at first, and for some time, dreams." Thanks for sharing this photo, Jill!

Do you have a favorite inspirational quote? We're working on revamping our inspirational collection and have so many great quotes at our disposition. But I'd like to know what inspires you. So please - leave a comment with your favorite quote.

And as a special thank you, we're going to choose one (at random) and create a custom design just for you. You decide the font, layout, size and color. I'll send a proofs throughout the process for review - just like we do for custom designs. And then - you get to see it every day in your home or office or, well, wherever. No charge. Just 'cause we appreciate your help and all need a little inspiration now and again.

So leave us a comment, share a quote and you just might get your own one-of-a-kind custom design of your favorite, most inspiring quote.*

*But just so you know - you'll likely be the first, but not the only with this design - we'll include it, along with all of our other favorite designs ('cause there are dozens of those!) in our new Inspirational wall quote collection.


  1. "Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life." Although I cannot find who said it.

    I also like the thought provoker "What would you attempt if you knew you could not fail?" Dr. Robert Schuller.

  2. "The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step" (not sure who said it)

    and I love Dr Seuss
    "You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose."
    I like this one without the second half of it (which is "You're on your own.
    And you know what you know. You are the guy who'll decide where to go")

  3. My step-daughter loves this one, and if chosen I'd put it in her room.

    "Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect. It means you have decided to look beyond the imperfections." ~ Author unknown

  4. These are all really great; thanks so much for sharing. Keep 'em comin', folks!

  5. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can’t find them, make them.
    -George Bernard Shaw, "Mrs. Warren's Profession"

  6. Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. It means to be in the midst of all those things and still be calm in your heart. -Unknown

  7. "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away."

  8. We may have been born to a certain station in life,
    but that doesn't mean we can't get on the train to somewhere better.

  9. God's gifts put man's best dreams to shame... Elizabeth Barrett Browning

    (I know, we discussed making a custom quote of this a while ago, but I put it aside for a bit and am now coming back to it.)

  10. I have so many!

    "quiet down dust bunnies" (this is a line from a song I made up for and sang to my baby boy!)

    “Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” -Confucius

    "For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul." -Judy Garland

    "you are what you think about all day" - Allen Ginsberg

    "it takes no time to fall in love, but it takes you years to know what love is." - Jason Mraz
