    Re: inquire from him/inquire him

    The first one is grammatical but unnatural. The second one is wrong.
    Just say "I think I should ask John if he is coming over for dinner".
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer
