Who inspires you? Who is your role model ?

There are many people who inspire us. As a child, we think of being an astronaut searching for kryptonite, a biologist searching for rare spieces or a physicist who aims to decipher the rules of universe or an artist redoing Mona Lisa. Behind each such dream there are heros, real world heros. I hope I would not be wrong, if I say that Feynmann singlehandedly inspired a whole generation of (then to be) physicts. Books of Stephan J. Gould and Richard Dawkins made arcane rules of nature understandable and logical. Who are your heros and how did they inspire you ?

    May 17 2011: Yi Sun-sin, who was the Korean navy admiral in the Joseon Dynasty. Why does inspire me? He had never ever been defeated in the war. At the battle of Myeongryang, he had defeated more than 133 enemy ships with only 13 ships. Many people think this battle just a legend but this is a historical fact.
