What do these images inspire you to write?

For me, writing at times is about inspiration. I find at other times, sayings or ideas push me to sit down and work on a story. What inspires you to write?

The Olympic creed says it all to me as a writer. Let me know your thoughts.

The Olympic Principles and Traditions
From Grolier Online’s New Book of Knowledge

Over time, the IOC has established official symbols, statements, and philosophies that represent the ideals of the Games. These include the Olympic creed, motto, and symbol; the Olympic flame; the athletes’ oath; and the Olympic Movement.

The Olympic Creed
The creed, or guiding principle, of the modern Olympic Games is a quote by Baron de Coubertin: “The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well.” The Olympic Motto

The Olympic motto consists of the Latin words Citius, Altius, Fortius , which means “Swifter, Higher, Stronger.” The motto, introduced in 1924, is meant to spur the athletes to embrace the Olympic spirit and perform to the best of their abilities.
