Will you show me the definition in Longman D?

Yes, "it" refers to the "pressure."

Whether it's a good idea about what should be done, is not known. The inspiration is to do something, but how "good" that something is, is not known. "Suddenness" is irrelevant here, I think.



Thanks a lot.

I got the definition from Longman Dictionary.
Kindly help me find out the definition of it in Longman dictionary because I have the translation version of the dictionary, by reading which I may know the word better.

An online dictionary states "inspire" means to "fill (someone) with the urge or ability to do or feel something, especially to do something creative."

I think that fits your context well.

I'll leave the rest of your question to others.


Thanks a lot. And will you help me to confirm it is

a good idea about what you should do, write, say etc, especially one which you get suddenly?


It gave me the inspiration to win.[/b]
One more question, does "It" refer to "the pressure"?

or something else?

Thanks.
