“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.”

-Helen Keller

Inspiration is the process of infusing faith in someone to encourage him or her to do the things they are meant to do. A lot of people do things simply out of the compassion in their heart and do not realize they are inspiring others around them.

There arises a stage in everyone’s life when all is gone and the future seems depressing. We always look for a godlike intervention that would help us in our hard times and push us towards the precise path. In my case, this godlike intervention came in the form of an inspiration when I came across these incredible movies that make me look at life in a different way:

  1. Life is Beautiful

a6Life is beautiful is an inspirational story about a father and his son in a Nazi concentration camp. It is a story of courage and faith. The spirit shown by the father, trying to make life beautiful for his little boy living in a hostile environment is remarkable and truly heart-breaking. He uses humor to shield his young son from the grim realities of war by convincing him that their time in the concentration camp is just a game.

  1. Death Poet Society

a5One of the best inspirational movies ever made but also one of my personal favorites.

The movie, starring Robin Williams, in one of his finest role as John Keating, an English teacher who encourages his students to break free from the rules and norms, go against the status quo and live defiantly.

  1. Schindler’s List.

a4Schindler’s list is a very powerful holocaust movie about a German industrialist named Oskar Schindler, who saves his Jewish employees from being prosecuted and taken into death camps. Directed by Spielberg, the movie is brilliantly acted, written, directed.

  1. The Pursuit of Happiness.

a3A simple, sentimental, inspiring movie about a broken father who tries to take care of his son after his wife leaves him when he loses all his money in a product he invested.

  1. 127 Hours.

a2  127 Hours is a thriller movie about Aron Ralston, who gets trapped in a crevice in the wilds of Utah for 5 days, with limited food and water, he takes drastic steps to survive, to see his family again. His story is a vivacious drama that offers a positive moral for survival against all the odds.

  1. Rocky.

a1  Rocky tells the story of Rocky Balboa, an uneducated but kind-hearted working class Italian-American, who gets a shot at the world heavyweight championship. The movie is an inspiration for all, it’s about a downtrodden man, finding the drive to become something more and that no matter what, there’s always a chance in life, as it shows that nothing can be achieved without hardworking and sacrifices.
