Who do you find to have inspired you most to succeed in life? Who would you call your "idol"? We've all got a favourite guitarist/sports star/person in general, so I'm just interested in who the pit finds to be inspirational to them.

Admittedly, this is the pit I'm asking, so I accept that serious answers are going to be few and far between.

Personally, one of my greatest inspirations in life is Muhammad Ali, for not giving up in what he believed in, and refusing to enlist in the army during the Vietnam war, even if it did mean giving up his title belt.

Kurt Cobain.

He had such a positive outlook on life.

Hmm.. Maybe John Frusciante. His guitarplaying is amazing and everything, but his view on life, hating the whole masculinity and macho-bullshit just inspires me. And basically he has an interesting view on life.
Ghandi is also one. He is who inspired me not to use violence whatever happens and trying to use words in a more meaningful way.

My parents, my boyfriend, my friends. They are all there for me, they're my support.
Her friends are gazing on her,
And on her gaudy bier,
And weep!-oh! to dishonor
Dead beauty with a tear!
They loved her for her wealth-
And they hated her for her pride-
But she grew in feeble health,
And they love her-that she died.

Eric Clapton... read his book and he just might be your hero too!
They credited us with the birth of that sort of heavy metal thing. Well, if that's the case, there should be an immediate abortion.

Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.
