“All we need is love…”, tells us a romantic song. And I`ll tell you every web developer needs motivation and inspiration. Which are not so romantic as it may seem for the first sight.
Those two naughty sisters (motivation and inspiration) sometimes leave us violently, giving no chance to be creative and productive. During a tough standstill period, you try to find at least something, that will get yourself together and pull out of a jam.
Therefore, I`ve got 21 tiny pills, which cure me while stagnation is attacking my creativity and productivity. This is a list of inspiration quotes I like the most. Hope they will provide you with an emergency help in the situation like that…

I`ll prefer to stop here. Sure the list can infinitely grow and grow. But I offer you to continue it on your own.
Why 21? Because we live in the 21st century now and have to keep up with the time.
