Inspiration is everywhere, but sometimes nothing is more inspiring or encouraging than the words of someone who's been there before you. It's a quick way of passing knowledge on. Here are a stack of quotations related to photography that I found inspiring and amusing:
"You can't depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus."
- Mark Twain
"Becoming a photographer is like becoming a prostitute, first you do it for fun, then for friends, then for money."
"It is easy to take a picture of a person and call it a portrait. the difficulty lies in taking a picture that makes the viewer care about a stranger."
"When you find yourself beginning to feel a bond between yourself and the people you photograph, when you laugh and cry with their laughter and tears, you will know you are on the right track.”
- Arthur Fellig
