Every quote has it's place in comprehending existence in its totality, therefore, no one quote can be any more inspiring than any other so long as they are encouraging one to comprehend life and its purpose. However, Romans 1:20 combined with Hebrews 11:1 and the definition of "word" in John 1:1-3's meaning of "a verbal means of explaining or expressing" tells me that an objective comprehension of the things we see reveals existence.
I like Romans 8:28 in the Bible which says, "All things work for the good of those who love God and fit into his plans." It gives me great optimism to think that nothing in my life is wasted, even the bad things will over time serve a purpose that will enrich my life and others. Also, my birthday is August 28 so it's like 8:28:).
I love quotes. I will have to post several if you don't mind.

“Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.”
"We are apt to be very pert at censuring others, where we will not endure advice our selves. And nothing shows our weakness more than to be so sharp-sighted at spying other men’s faults, and so pure blind about our own." William Penn
"Have Ithaka always in your mind. Your arrival there is what you are destined for. But don't in the least hurry the journey. Better it last for years, so that when you reach the island you are old, rich with all you have gained on the way, not expecting Ithaka to give you wealth. Ithaka gave you a splendid journey. Without her you would not have set out. She hasn't anything else to give you."
I do not know why this 'speaks' to me but in a way I see in it a metaphor for life, it is from the poem - Ithaca by C.P.Cavafy
