I was reading some blog entries listing inspirational people. I was enjoying the thoughts of others with regards to people that I also was inspired by. Then, I caught sight of a link to “Influential People”.

Hm. To be an inspiration to others…or to influence others?

Inspiration comes from inspire. The root meaning of the word is from Latin inspirare, to breathe.

Influence, from Latin influere to flow in.

I’ll be thinking on these words for awhile.
