I have been asked to write a 1000 word article for a major trade publication in my artsy area of business. About what I do, why I do it, what we should be doing in this particular artsy area of business, etc.
I would love some recommendations of similar articles you may have read to inspire me, give me a bit of a template, or otherwise give me ideas for my own piece. They don't necessarily have to be about anything artsy...it could be any area of expertise. Thank you!

I'm looking for songs which have lyrics that are inspirational, particularly in terms of moving forward, overcoming adversity, or not losing hope. What made you think "things will be ok" when you first heard it, especially if it wasn't something you would normally listen to? Whether it's just a line, verse, chorus, or the whole song, all genres are welcome. [more inside]

I'm looking for the original footage of this video, entitled "Words of wisdom brought to you by an insane person" (http://vimeo.com/98810628). This version has a Hans Zimmer song over the top and I want the original without any music. Can anyone help?

I am looking for examples for that cheesy "inspirational movie" music that you might see in a Hollywood movie trailer. Usually it accompanies some kind of tagline like, "He didn't know that helping one dog...would send him on the journey...of a lifetime." One example is here at 20 seconds of this
trailer. That stirring music that is meant to emotionally manipulate you - can you help me find various versions of it? Thanks.

There are a lot of places attributing the quote ""The sun will rise without thy assistance" to the Talmud. Is that true? If so, where does it say that in the Talmud? I would love to either verify or debunk this quote.

I am hoping to finish my phd in science in the next 12 months. Though a tiny, tiny light is beginning to appear at the end of this tunnel, getting to that light is going to be HARD. My endurance has already been severely tested by the first 4.5 years of this degree. It's hard to wrap my mind around how much more endurance and resilience will now be required. Please share any inspirational quotes that might apply here. Thanks!
