At Innovate Today, our mission is to inspire you to live life to the fullest in the most creative way possible.

George Carlin’s quote on those who Dance
George D. Carlin was a stand-up comedian, actor, author and social critic. He is considered to be one of the most influential comics of our time for his reflections on politics, psychology, religion and several other topics. We considered his quote shown below in one of our earlier posts this year titled Loving What You Do. His quote was
“Those who dance are considered insane by those who can’t hear the music.”
We believe that this quote is in direct connection to the subject of passion and loving what one does. As we enter the New Year, don’t be afraid to pursue what you are passionate about because of what people think. Also, surround yourself with friends and colleagues of similar passion. That way, they can encourage you to pursue your dreams and goals for the year.
Saint Francis of Asisi’s inspiring quote on Doing the Impossible
In August 2018, we lost several legends and world icons. We published a post in honor of Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Soul and Mr. Koffi Annan, the former Secretary General of the United Nations when they passed away. That post was titled Doing the Impossible, which was an appropriate title considering the seemingly impossible barriers both Aretha Franklin and Koffi Annan had surmounted during their lives.
Saint Francis, commonly referred to as Saint Francis of Asisi is known for this inspiring quote on doing the impossible:
“Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible”
As we noted in our post, Saint Francis explains that doing the impossible begins when we start doing the things that are necessary. Ordinary as they may be, they are stepping stones to the extraordinary. From this inspiring quote, we understand that in 2019, if we will first do those things that are necessary, and then those things that are possible, we can do the impossible.
Dorothy Parker’s quote on Creativity
Here at Innovate Design Studios, we pride ourselves with creating premium websites that are tailor suited to each client at affordable prices. We also understand that creativity can be wild. However, like most wild things, to make them useful, they must be tamed. This is where Dorothy Parker’s quote comes in:
“Creativity is a wild mind and a disciplined eye”
In her quote, Dorothy Parker, the great American poet, writer and critic helps us understand that creativity must be balanced with a disciplined eye to convey its full message. Our takeaway from Ms. Parkers’ quote is that in 2019, we must seek to balance passion and creativity with wisdom and discipline. Only then can we be truly successful.
Billy Graham’s quote on Courage
Like we said earlier, we lost a lot of great people in 2018. This included Billy Graham, the legendary Evangelist. He lived to a ripe old age and served his generation, country and several US Presidents. In his inspiring quote, he said:
“Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes s stand, the spines of others are often stiffened.”
In 2019, we must be courageous. We must be bold enough to pursue our dreams and goals. If we will not take a stand for what we believe in, we may lose those things we hold dear.
Victor Hugo’s quote on the Power of Ideas
Victor Hugo is credited with authoring the inspiring quote below:
“An invasion of armies can be resisted, but not an idea whose time has come.”
Ideas are an incredible thing. They start out small but just like seeds, they have the capacity to grow into giant, tangible things. In 2019, we must not be afraid to embrace new ideas, chase after them and see them grow.
