Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder. Help someone’s soul heal. Walk
out of your house like a shepherd.

Care less for your harvest than for how it is shared and your life will have meaning and your heart will have peace.
–Kent Nerburn

There is as much wisdom in soliciting good counsel as in giving it. The most sensible people are not reluctant to consider the feelings of other people; and to know how to submit to the wise guidance of others is a kind of wisdom in itself.
–Magdeleine Sable

One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.
–Luciano Pavarotti

World peace will never be stable until enough of us find inner peace to stabilize it.
–Peace Pilgrim

Dignity does not consist in possessing honors, but in deserving them.

Autumn burned brightly, a running flame through the mountains, a torch flung to the trees.
–Faith Baldwin

Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree.
–Emily Bronte

Now Autumn’s fire burns slowly along the woods
And day by day the dead leaves fall and melt.
–William Allingham

For light I go directly to the source of light, not to any of the reflections.
–Peace Pilgrim

Though my soul may set in darkness,
It will rise in perfect light.
I have loved the stars too fondly
To be fearful of the night.
–Sarah Williams

Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue.

All created things are alive, conscious, and want to communicate. The Creator has endowed all creatures with wisdom and joy, and they are eager to share with us their ways of being in the world. In time we learn to recognize them as our companions.
–Tom Cowan

Hold on to what is good even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe even if it is a tree which stands by itself.

Hold on to what you must do even if it is a long way from here.
Hold on to life even when it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you.
–Pueblo Blessing

I loved the quote by Peace Pilgrim :
World peace will never be stable until enough of us find inner peace to stabilize it.

Maitreya, of the Mission of Maitreya indeed teaches that there are three Kingdoms of Heaven; the one in Heaven which is already established, the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth ..yet to be established and very much influenced by the number of those who have reached the Kingdom of Heaven Within (as Rumi called them those who find inner peace) and are working together to establish it on the earth.
To see more on the three kingdoms: http://www.maitreya.org/FILES/discourse/Kingdoms.html (note: page down to the 3rd question in the Satsang)

great quotes... but my absolute favorite ones are these 2 from Franklin D. Roosevelt:

To reach a port, we must sail - sail, not tie at anchor - sail, not drift.

When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.

Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder. Help someone’s soul heal. Walk
out of your house like a shepherd.

Reminds me of a quote I have on my Care2 page by E.F. Ufford that says "Throw out the lifeline, throw out the lifeline - someone is sinking today."

Very powerful quote in my opinion...and very true!

I don't know if anyone else will consider this an inspirational quote or not but it certainly has caused my family to pause and think about how we treat the environment and especially our water resources -
