Susan B. Anthony

William Butler Yeats

Saint Teresa of Avila

The thing that inspires me most is empathizing with people's flaws and seeing how they deal with them. That sort of connection you feel with someone when you realize that maybe even the negative things that they've said or done are because of insecurities or injuries they've endured.

Leonardo da Vinci
