What does inspiration mean to you?

Newton’s First Law of Motion states that an object in motion or at rest will stay in motion or at rest unless acted upon by an outside force. Art has the power to do both – when it stops us in our tracks, we call it awe; when it moves us to action, we call that inspiration.
