Add font awesome icons as placeholder text in inputs

An old one i found on codepen, works with only the old version of font awesome i think. Not tested on the later versions.

HTML

<link href="//netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.1.0/css/font-awesome.min.css" rel="stylesheet">

<textarea placeholder='&#xf075; Add Comment'></textarea>

<br>

<input type='text' placeholder='&#xf02b; Some Input Text'></input>

CSS

textarea, input {
  padding:10px;
	font-family: FontAwesome, "Open Sans", Verdana, sans-serif;
    font-style: normal;
    font-weight: normal;
    text-decoration: inherit;
}

The problem with hoarding is you end up living off your reserves. Eventually, you’ll become stale. If you give away everything you have, you are left with nothing. This forces you to look, to be aware, to replenish. . . . Somehow the more you give away, the more comes back to you.
