Well, as far as heros go, William McCool (NASA), John Glenn (USMC), and Bill Nye (Chuck Norris of science).

As I don't (currently) follow a definable religion or beliefs, much is inspired by chivalric wannabe-ing, a belif in justice and a primordial urge to fight for it. Audio stimuli wise, grand movie themes (Duel of the Fates, Bridge of Khazad Dum, The Kraken), Celtic singers and sopranos (Hayley Westenra, Orla Fallon, Lisa Kelly, Celtic Woman), classic rock (Chicago's Don't Wanna Live Without Your Love, Led Zeppelin's Battle of Evermore), Machinae Supremecy (metal?) thanks gmjhowe!!.

Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Lord of the RIngs, and other grand myths of our time also provide inspiration for me. I'm short one love of my life to having one, but I'm always on the look out..

The kids I teach - some of them are utter numpties I would happily feed to the wolverines, but then you get a kid whose parents have split up and found new partners so often, they aren't related to anybody they live with, who don't have a book in the house, or a space to work at home or even a bed they can use alone, who has to feed and clothe themselves because the "adults" at home are too drunk to care, and they still get to school on time, they still get their work done, and they still manage to be enthusiastic in lessons.

They are the ones I go to work for.
Teaching, the noblest profession...a good day to you, Sir.

Without sounding too mushy, my wife inspires me at times ( for instance, she stretched the spring on our newest tape measure, so it wouldn't rewind, and that inspired my latest -ible ;-)

Need I say more?
Nope. I really liked this the first time I saw it (I think someone tagged me with it on FaceBook).
I love that video
That was seriously the most beautiful thing I've seen in a long time. That is why I dance! It makes everyone so happy. Anytime I can get my coworkers loosened up enough to dance we end up having a crazy choreographed giggling party at the buy counter. :D

Well I don't mean to get all soppy, but my gf is a big inspirational element in my life. If your asking more about in a creative sense then it comes from a subconcious amalgomation of every movie I've seen or book I've read or other peoples creativity.
Heehee. I think in a way the whole thread has to get soppy, else it's not genuine.
