"Inspire" seems to have two meanings, one of which is "make someone want to do something", and the meaning of the underlined here.
It seems to mean "make someone hit upon a creative idea". So do you think the two meanings are distinctly different or similar?
2)Nature has always been the source for new inventions. For example, birds inspired the design of airplanes.

I think probably this definition matches the second meaning. What do you think?
5. To be the cause or source of; bring about: an invention that inspired many imitations.
Note that the quotation (and thread title) should read '...birds inspired the design...'
