Purpose quotes by Rick Warren
#1. The search for the purpose of life has puzzled people for thousands of years. That's because we typically begin at the wrong starting point - ourselves. We ask self-centered questions like What do I want to be? What should I do with my life? What are my goals, my ambitions, my dreams for my future? But focusing on ourselves will never reveal our life's purpose. #Quote by Rick Warren
Purpose quotes by Kimberly Giles
#2. Your life will always be the perfect classroom journey for you and every experience that shows up in your journey is here to serve you. There is meaning and purpose behind everything that happens. There are no accidents which means your suffering through difficulties is never for nothing. Your life matters and everything you experience matters. Your trials are there to help you become a better person and trusting this is truth will take some of the sting out of them. Suffering becomes more bearable if it at least counts for something. #Quote by Kimberly Giles
Purpose quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#3. When a complex is acquired, personal development is stopped and the person even being an adult, sometimes behaves in a childish and immature way #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Purpose quotes by Malachi Thompson III
#4. Touch a day you will never see. #Quote by Malachi Thompson III
Purpose quotes by Paul Hoffman
#5. People treat the present moment as if it is just a stopping point on the way to some great goal that will happen in the future, and then they are surprised that the long day closes; they look back on their life and see that the things they let go by so unregarded, the small pleasures they dismissed so easily were in fact the true significance of their lives- all the time these things were the great and wonderful successes and purpose of their existence. #Quote by Paul Hoffman
Purpose quotes by Robin S. Sharma
#6. Never regret your past. Rather,
embrace it as the teacher that it is. #Quote by Robin S. Sharma
Purpose quotes by Antonella Molfino
#7. The purpose of life, is to find a purpose every step you go. #Quote by Antonella Molfino
Purpose quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#8. I believe that nothing that happens to me is meaningless and that it is good for us all that it should be so, even if it runs counter to our own wishes. As I see it, I'm here for some purpose, and I only hope I may fulfill it. #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Purpose quotes by Wendell Berry
#9. The Economy was studying the purpose of The War, which is to purchase and not have. The customers of The War (all of us, that is) purchase life at a great cost and yet lose it. And The War was just as busily studying the purpose of The Economy, which is to cause people to purchase what they do not need or do not want, and to receive patiently what they did not expect. Having paid for life, we receive death. By now, in this nineteen hundred and eighty-sixth Year of Our Lord, we all have purchased how many shares in death? How many bombs, shells, mines, guns, grenades, poisons, anonymous murders, nameless sufferings, official secrets? But not the controlling share. Death cannot be marketed in controlling shares. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Purpose quotes by E'yen A. Gardner
#10. Understanding your importance does not minimize those around you, it brings fulfillment to everyone. #Quote by E'yen A. Gardner
Purpose quotes by George Albert Smith
#11. Our feet have been planted upon this sacred soil for a wise purpose. This land has been dedicated for the blessing of mankind. The Constitution and the laws that have been enacted under its provisions are calculated to insure liberty, not license, to all who dwell here. This church with which we are identified stands, if it stands for anything, for the perpetuation of the liberties of all mankind. We should not listen to those who find pleasure in teaching sedition. Neither should we follow those who claim to be citizens of this land, who go about violating the laws that govern it. There are many who are failing to do their duty as citizens who have the right of franchise, but who are unworthy of that blessing that has come to those who live in this wonderful country. #Quote by George Albert Smith
Purpose quotes by Jim Butcher
#12. All power is the same. Magic. Physical strength. Economic strength. Political strength. It all serves a single purpose-it gives its possessor a broader spectrum of choices. It creates alternative courses of action. #Quote by Jim Butcher
Purpose quotes by Mark Dever
#13. Friend, the church finds its life as it listens to the Word of God. It finds its purpose as it lives out and displays the Word of God. The church's job is to listen and then to echo. #Quote by Mark Dever
Purpose quotes by Darrel Ray
#14. Throughout adolescence, Muslim men receive strong messages about male dominance in Marriage. The Koran is highly male-focused, with women being of little importance. Mohammed married as many women as he wanted, even a nine-year-old girl. Polygamy was acceptable and women were given in marriage with little consideration. Rules and punishments for women are far harsher than for men. [ ... ] Women are told that their purpose is to please the man and have children. Men are taught that sex with an in infidel woman, especially in another country, is not a sin against Allah. For a Muslim woman, sex with any man except her husband is a crime. #Quote by Darrel Ray
Purpose quotes by Simon Sebag Montefiore
#15. Faced with Russian menace and Ottoman collapse, Britain and France threatened war. Nicholas stubbornly called their bluff because, he explained, he was "waging war for a solely Christian purpose, under the banner of the Holy Cross." On 28 March 1853, the French and British declared war on Russia. Even though most of the fighting was far away in the Crimea, this war placed Jerusalem at the centre of the world stage where she has remained ever since.f #Quote by Simon Sebag Montefiore
Purpose quotes by Paul Carus
#16. The truth us that other systems of geometry are possible, yet after all, these other systems are not spaces but other methods of space measurements. There is one space only, though we may conceive of many different manifolds, which are contrivances or ideal constructions invented for the purpose of determining space. #Quote by Paul Carus
Purpose quotes by Rudolf Steiner
#17. Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives. The need for imagination, a sense of truth, and a feeling of responsibility - these three forces are the very nerve of education. #Quote by Rudolf Steiner
Purpose quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#18. My Lolita had a way of raising her bent left knee at the ample and springy start of the service cycle when there would develop and hang in the sun for a second a vital web of balance between toed foot, pristine armpit, burnished arm and far back-flung racket, as she smiled up with gleaming teeth at the small globe suspended so high in the zenith of the powerful and graceful cosmos she had created for the express purpose of falling upon it with a clean resounding crack of her golden whip. #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Purpose quotes by Francis Bacon
#19. Nevertheless if any skillful Servant of Nature shall bring force to bear on matter, and shall vex it and drive it to extremities as if with the purpose of reducing it to nothing, then will matter (since annihilation or true destruction is not possible except by the omnipotence of God) finding itself in these straits, turn and transform itself into strange shapes, passing from one change to another till it has gone through the whole circle and finished the period. #Quote by Francis Bacon
Purpose quotes by H.L. Mencken
#20. It is the invariable habit of bureaucracies, at all times and everywhere, to assume ... that every citizen is a criminal. Their one apparent purpose, pursued with a relentless and furious diligence, is to convert the assumption into a fact. They hunt endlessly for proofs, and, when proofs are lacking, for mere suspicions. The moment they become aware of a definite citizen, John Doe, seeking what is his right under the law, they begin searching feverishly for an excuse for withholding it from him. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Purpose quotes by Jennifer Gilmore
#21. I had the worst feeling, when I hung up, that I had missed the purpose of our conversation, that we both had. We had been apart for so long and no longer knew how to speak, other than as strangers. How are you feeling? we said, but what we meant was, Where are you? who are you now? Are you still in there? #Quote by Jennifer Gilmore
Purpose quotes by Norman Vincent Peale
#22. Trouble is here. It is for a purpose. Use it for the purpose for which it was intended - to help you grow. Thank God for your troubles. #Quote by Norman Vincent Peale
Purpose quotes by Gabrielle Zevin
#23. No one travels without purpose. Those who are lost wish to be lost. #Quote by Gabrielle Zevin
Purpose quotes by William Shakespeare
#24. The devil can site scripture for his own purpose! An evil soul producing holy witness is like a villain with a smiling cheek. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Purpose quotes by Ronald Reagan
#25. Deep religious beliefs stemming from the Old and New Testaments of the Bible inspired many of the early settlers of our country, providing them with the strength, character, convictions, and faith necessary to withstand great hardship and danger in this new and rugged land. These shared beliefs helped forge a sense of common purpose among the widely dispersed colonies - a sense of community which laid the foundation for the spirit of nationhood that was to develop in later decades. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Purpose quotes by George Patterson
#26. This was typical of Topgyay. Unlike most Tibetan officials, he was interested in these Khambas, the fiercest and most populous of all the Tibetan peoples, as individuals and not as mere tools to serve his purpose. They loved him for it, as much as they respected him for his fighting record. #Quote by George Patterson
Purpose quotes by Benjamin Suulola
#27. Two categories of people can be found in the world today. There are those who make things happen and there are those who watch things happen. A spectator watch things happen while a player make things happen. In the same vein, history writers watch things happen and history makers make things happen. This is why history writers are always at the mercy of history makers. #Quote by Benjamin Suulola
Purpose quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#28. It is necessary to understand who you are #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Purpose quotes by Jamie Freveletti
#29. Last Saturday night I was in a club on the South Side of Chicago listening to live rock music and talking to a guitar playing veteran of the music scene in the city. He looked and talked like the musicians that I recall from my childhood; he was a thin, cigarette smoking, avant garde and interesting guy. We got to talking about a life in the relatively risky creative arts and he said, "Look, you could get that safe job and spend your whole life that way, but what are you waiting for? When you're ninety-six years old and have three days left? Is that when you decide to do what you love? #Quote by Jamie Freveletti
Purpose quotes by Lisa Langseth
#30. My films require that the spectator ask the big existential questions. If you're not interested of turning inwards for answers, my films won't fulfill their whole purpose. #Quote by Lisa Langseth
Purpose quotes by Nikesh Shukla
#31. There is a dream, a grand idealism, that mixed-race people are the hope for change, the peacekeepers, we are the people with an other understanding, with an invested interest in everyone being treated equally as we have a foot and a loyalty in many camps, with all shades. We are like love bombs planted in the minefield of black and white. It is as if our parents intended to make us, with courage, and on purpose, as vessels of empathy, bridges for the cultural divide and diplomats for diversity and equality." (from "The Good Immigrant" by Nikesh Shukla) #Quote by Nikesh Shukla
Purpose quotes by John F. Kennedy
#32. Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Purpose quotes by Simon Winchester
#33. According to an equally lovingly preserved English translation of the prospectus, the purpose of Ibuka's firm was "to establish an ideal factory that stresses a spirit of freedom and open-mindedness, and where engineers with sincere motivation can exercise their technological skills to the highest level." We shall, he pledged, "eliminate any unfair profit-seeking exercises" and "seek expansion not only for the sake of size." Further, "we shall carefully select employees ... we shall avoid to have [sic] formal positions for the mere sake of having them, and shall place emphasis on a person's ability, performance and character, so that each #Quote by Simon Winchester
Purpose quotes by Patrick Rothfuss
#34. I am at your service, my lady, I said, standing and releasing her hand. For the first time in my life I understood the true purpose of this sort of formal greeting. It gives you a script to follow when you have absolutely no idea what to say. #Quote by Patrick Rothfuss
Purpose quotes by Prem Jagyasi
#35. If the idea doesn't drive us crazy and make us restless, it basically belongs to that cluster of ideas that keeps hovering in our mind sans any purpose. #Quote by Prem Jagyasi
Purpose quotes by D.H. Lawrence
#36. Myth is an attempt to narrate a whole human experience, of which the purpose is too deep, going too deep in the blood and soul, for mental explanation or description. #Quote by D.H. Lawrence
Purpose quotes by Francois Rabelais
#37. I am going to seek a great purpose, draw the curtain, the farce is played. #Quote by Francois Rabelais
Purpose quotes by Herman Melville
#38. The path to my fixed purpose is laid with iron rails whereon my soul is grooved to run #Quote by Herman Melville
Purpose quotes by Avijeet Das
#39. There is nothing else to life. To have a passion and die for it! #Quote by Avijeet Das
Purpose quotes by Michael Meade
#40. Each life involves an essential errand; not simply the task of survival, but a life-mission embedded in the soul from the beginning. #Quote by Michael Meade
Purpose quotes by Lisa Bevere
#41. Satan had made it his aim to distract you from who you really are and what the purpose of your life really is. It is his focused objective to lure you out of the path of strength, life, and authority and into a course of intentional destruction. #Quote by Lisa Bevere
Purpose quotes by Thomas Harris
#42. Occasionally, on purpose, Dr. Lecter drops a teacup to shatter on the floor. He is satisfied when it does not gather itself together. For many months now, he has not seen Mischa in his dreams.
Someday perhaps a cup will come together. Or somewhere Starling may hear a crossbow string and come to some unwilled awakening, if indeed she even sleeps. #Quote by Thomas Harris
Purpose quotes by Alexis Carrel
#43. Men grow when inspired by a high purpose, when contemplating vast horizons. The sacrifice of oneself is not very difficult for one burning with the passion for a great adventure. #Quote by Alexis Carrel
Purpose quotes by Jarod Kintz
#44. I walk with a purpose. And a limp. (The limp helps serve my purpose, which is to gain sympathy.) #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Purpose quotes by Brendan Fraser
#45. I guess darkness serves a purpose: to show us that there is redemption through chaos. I believe in that. I think that's the basis of Greek mythology. #Quote by Brendan Fraser
Purpose quotes by Hotta Kiichi
#46. Well, it's not like I ignore them on purpose. It's just that no one's voice resounds in my heart.

- Asaba Yuuki, (Kimi to Boku, #1) #Quote by Hotta Kiichi
Purpose quotes by Sunday Adelaja

Purpose quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#49. God is able to turn your vision into reality #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Purpose quotes by Scott Cohen
#50. There is nothing like understanding that your work has touched somebody. That is the sole purpose of acting. To be able to move and inspire. If I can do that for one person it is already changing the world and that makes me feel accomplished. #Quote by Scott Cohen
Purpose quotes by Jeff Cooper
#51. The purpose of the pistol is to stop a fight that somebody else has started, almost always at very short range. #Quote by Jeff Cooper
Purpose quotes by Wallace Stegner
#52. Ruth believes that boys are not found around stables because what they like is taking things apart and putting them together again, and for this purpose horses are not so satisfactory as cars, motorcycles, and even bicycles, while girls adore horses because they are biological and have functions. #Quote by Wallace Stegner
Purpose quotes by Jonathan Stroud
#53. A typical master. Right to the end, he didn't give me a chance to get a word in edgeways. Which is a pity, because at that last moment I'd have liked to tell him what I thought of him. Mind you, since in that split second we were, to all intents and purposes, one and the same, I rather think he knew anyway. #Quote by Jonathan Stroud
Purpose quotes by Harry Turtledove
#54. People you don't like are pigheaded. Your friends are stubborn, or hold to their purpose.~Victor Radcliff #Quote by Harry Turtledove
Purpose quotes by Beyonce Knowles
#55. I feel more beautiful than I've ever felt because I've given birth. I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth. The best thing about having a daughter is having a true legacy. The word love means something completely different now. #Quote by Beyonce Knowles
Purpose quotes by Morolayo Anne Owoputi
#56. To die fulfilled is to have discovered self and purpose and to achieve all that comes in these two packages #Quote by Morolayo Anne Owoputi
Purpose quotes by Osho
#57. Each person comes into this world with a specific destiny
he has something to fulfill, some message has to be delivered, some work has to be completed. You are not here accidentally
you are here meaningfully. There is a purpose behind you. The whole intends to do something through you. #Quote by Osho
Purpose quotes by William Cowper
#58. He that has seen both sides of fifty has lived to little purpose if he has no other views of the world than he had when he was much younger. #Quote by William Cowper
Purpose quotes by Carlos Bulosan
#59. We do not take democracy for granted. We feel it grow in our working together - many millions of us working toward a common purpose. If it took us several decades of sacrifice to arrive at this faith, it is because it took us that long to know what part of America is ours.
Our faith has been shaken many times, and now it is put to question. Our faith is a living thing, and it can be crippled or chained. It can be killed by denying us enough food or clothing, by blasting away our personalities and keeping us in constant fear. Unless we are properly prepared the powers of darkness will have good reason to catch us unaware and trample our lives. #Quote by Carlos Bulosan
Purpose quotes by Ameen Rihani
#60. I state the threefold purpose of my travels in Arabia: to see the country, to write about it and to be of some service to its people and their cause - that is what brought me from beyond the seas, from America. #Quote by Ameen Rihani
Purpose quotes by Jawaharlal Nehru
#61. Our lives are encumbered with the dead wood of this past; all that is dead and has served its purpose has to go. But that does not mean a break with, or a forgetting of, the vital and life-giving in that past. We can never forget the ideals that have moved our race, the dreams of the Indian people through the ages, the wisdom of the ancients, the buoyant energy and love of life and nature of our forefathers, their spirit of curiosity and mental adventure, the daring of their thought, their splendid achievements in literature, art and culture, their love of truth and beauty and freedom, the basic values that they set up, their understanding of life's mysterious ways, their toleration of other ways than theirs, their capacity to absorb other peoples and their cultural accomplishments, to synthesize them and develop a varied and mixed culture; nor can we forget the myriad experiences which have built up our ancient race and lie embedded in our sub-conscious minds. We will never forget them or cease to take pride in that noble heritage of ours. If India forgets them she will no longer remain India and much that has made her our joy and pride will cease to be. #Quote by Jawaharlal Nehru
Purpose quotes by Bee Wilson
#62. Here's a quick translation: spork = a spoon with added tines; splayd = a knife, fork, and spoon in one, consisting of a tined spoon with a sharpened edge; knork = a fork with the cutting power of a knife; spife = a spoon with a knife on the end (an example would be the plastic green kiwi spoons sold in kitchenware shops); sporf = an all-purpose term for any hybrid of spoon, fork, and knife. #Quote by Bee Wilson
Purpose quotes by Bidemi Mark-Mordi
#63. One stroke out of sync may alter the picture, but it doesn't cancel purpose; it may slow you down but doesn't disqualify you. #Quote by Bidemi Mark-Mordi
Purpose quotes by Iain Cameron Williams
#64. A life void-of-purpose is no life at all #Quote by Iain Cameron Williams
Purpose quotes by Craig Groeschel
#65. Sex joins two people spiritually and emotionally as well as physically. This is its purpose-to bond a couple together. Sex connects and fuses people together. #Quote by Craig Groeschel
Purpose quotes by Gordon Brown
#66. I have just accepted the invitation of Her Majesty The Queen to form a Government. This will be a new Government with new priorities and I have been privileged to have been granted the great opportunity to serve my country and at all times I will be strong in purpose, steadfast in will, resolute in action in the service of what matters to the British people, meeting the concerns and aspirations of our whole country. #Quote by Gordon Brown
Purpose quotes by Francis George
#67. Racism, whether personal, social, institutional or structural, contradicts the purpose of the incarnation of the Word of God in the womb of the Virgin Mary. Racism contradicts God's will for our salvation. #Quote by Francis George
Purpose quotes by Linda Evangelista
#68. I was a hoarder, and I got rid of everything. Now nothing comes in my home unless it has a purpose. And decor is not a purpose. Home is New York apartment with a table, a bed and sofas. That's it. Everything else is gone. #Quote by Linda Evangelista
Purpose quotes by Thomas Wolfe
#69. Perhaps this is our strange and haunting paradox here in America
that we are fixed and certain only when we are in movement. At any rate, that is how it seemed to young George Webber, who was never so assured of his purpose as when he was going somewhere on a train. And he never had the sense of home so much as when he felt that he was going there. It was only when he got there that his homelessness began. #Quote by Thomas Wolfe
Purpose quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#70. I have spent much of my studies searching for the right question by which I might fully understand the breach between the world and me. I have not spent my time studying the problem of 'race' - 'race' itself is just a restatement and retrenchment of the problem. You see this from time to time when some dullard - usually believing himself white - proposes that the way forward is a grand orgy of black and white, ending only when we are all beige and thus the same 'race.' But a great number of 'black' people are already beige. And the history of civilization is littered with dead 'races' (Frankish, Italian, German, Irish) later abandoned because they no longer serve their purpose - the organization of people beneath, and beyond, and the umbrella of rights. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Purpose quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#71. Uplifting God's Kingdom on earth should be our life's mandate as believers #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Purpose quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#72. People with victim mentality often do not have life purpose, because they do not know how to acquire them unless someone plans their future for them #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Purpose quotes by Charles Hodge
#73. It is only when men associate with the wicked with the desire and purpose of doing them good, that they can rely upon the protection of God to preserve them from contamination. #Quote by Charles Hodge
Purpose quotes by Charles Dance
#74. Because [writers] Dan Weiss and David Benioff have done such a great job in adapting them, that's what we work with. It serves no purpose to anybody for actors to come onto a set with a well-thumbed copy of the source material and start querying why this or that line has been left out of the script. It's probably been left out for a good reason. #Quote by Charles Dance
Purpose quotes by Alain De Botton
#75. Taking architecture seriously therefore makes some singular strenuous demands upon us. It requires that we open ourselves to the idea that we are affected by our surroundings even when they are made of vinyl and would be expensive and time-consuming to ameliorate. It means conceding that we are inconveniently vulnerable to the color of our wallpaper and that our sense of purpose may be derailed by an unfortunate bedspread. At the same time, it means acknowledging that buildings are able to solve no more than a fraction of our dissatisfactions or prevent evil from unfolding under their watch.

Architecture, even at its most accomplished, will only ever constitute a small, and imperfect (expensive, prone to destruction, and morally unreliable), protest against the state of things. More awkwardly still, architecture asks us to imagine that happiness might often have an unostentatious, unheroic character to it, that it might be found in a run of old floorboards or in a wash of morning light over a plaster wall - in undramatic, frangible scenes of beauty that move us because we are aware of the darker backdrop against which they are set. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Purpose quotes by John Green
#76. I saw that I would never know. I would never know her well enough to know her thoughts in those last minutes, would never know if she left us on purpose. But the not-knowing would not keep me from caring, and I would always love #Quote by John Green
Purpose quotes by Janvier Chouteu-Chando
#77. We still need to give our best to life even if we do not understand the purpose of our existence on earth. #Quote by Janvier Chouteu-Chando
Purpose quotes by Felix Gonzalez-Torres
#78. Above all else, it is about leaving a mark that I existed: I was here. I was hungry. I was defeated. I was happy. I was sad. I was in love. I was afraid. I was hopeful. I had an idea and I had a good purpose and that's why I made works of art. #Quote by Felix Gonzalez-Torres
Purpose quotes by Elif Batuman
#79. While it's true that, as Tolstoy observed, every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way, and everyone on planet Earth, vale of tears that it is, is certainly entitled to the specificity of his or her suffering, one nonetheless likes to think that literature has the power to render comprehensible different kinds of unhappiness. If it can't do that, what's it good for? #Quote by Elif Batuman
Purpose quotes by Darrell Scott
#80. I would encourage people to see through rather than look at their circumstances. If you see through your circumstances to the person you want to be, then your life and it's tragedies will have purpose. If you look at your circumstances, then you will despair and give up. #Quote by Darrell Scott
Purpose quotes by James Hudson Taylor
#81. Depend on it. God's work done in God's way will never lack God's supply. He is too wise a God to frustrate His purposes for lack of funds, and He can just as easily supply them ahead of time as afterwards, and He much prefers doing so. #Quote by James Hudson Taylor
Purpose quotes by Debasish Mridha
#82. The purpose of life is to be happy and then spread the fragrance of happiness to enhance the beauty of life. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Purpose quotes by Hal Elrod
#83. The A-B-C's of Living Life's Purpose: A=Accept all things you can't change. B=Be Grateful for all that you have. C=Constantly create progress towards to your goals & dreams. #Quote by Hal Elrod
Purpose quotes by Tony Hsieh
#84. Having a higher purpose is more than just about profits. You actually end up making more profits in the long run because employees really are a lot more engaged and customers see the higher purpose in the company. #Quote by Tony Hsieh
Purpose quotes by Neale Donald Walsch
#85. The purpose of meditation is to create focus. It is about focusing your attention on your experience. The reason for focus: it allows you to be here now. Your only reality is This Moment, right here, right now. Peace is found in such awareness. #Quote by Neale Donald Walsch
Purpose quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#86. If a man realizes who he is, he cannot be hurt, humiliated or offended #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Purpose quotes by Dan Buettner
#87. Having a purpose and knowing exactly what your values are will add additional years to your life. #Quote by Dan Buettner
Purpose quotes by David McCullough
#88. Meanwhile, an article in the September issue of the popular McClure's Magazine written by Simon Newcomb, a distinguished astronomer and professor at Johns Hopkins University, dismissed the dream of flight as no more than a myth. And were such a machine devised, he asked, what useful purpose could it possibly serve? #Quote by David McCullough
Purpose quotes by Mollie Marti
#89. The utmost form of respect is to give sincerely of your presence. #Quote by Mollie Marti
Purpose quotes by Miles McPherson
#90. Christmas is a time when God showed His love for us, and we're ready to show God's love in the communities where we live and serve. That's the purpose of the church. #Quote by Miles McPherson
Purpose quotes by Bode Miller
#91. Join the bold, the brazen, the unintimidated. Join not having excuses. Join the idea that fun is the source of all joy. Join the unwillingness to give up. Join doing things your way. Join not joining. Join that purpose is stronger than outcome. Join your gut. Join the constant challenge of seeking greatness. Join play. Join the hunger to find what makes you happy. Join karma and nature and the effect you have on your world. Join your philosophy. Join something bigger than you. Join what you believe. #Quote by Bode Miller
Purpose quotes by Noah James Hittner
#92. Your purpose is not your purpose for being here. Your experience of the feeling of purpose is your purpose for being here! #Quote by Noah James Hittner
Purpose quotes by Anna Kournikova
#93. You don't think people would go on about my looks if I was No. 500 in the world instead of No.12, do you? Anyway, as I keep telling everyone, you can't blame me for looking like this on purpose. #Quote by Anna Kournikova
Purpose quotes by George R R Martin
#94. Jon, could there be honor in a lie, if it were told for a ... good purpose? - Samwell #Quote by George R R Martin
Purpose quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#95. When you believe the truth about yourself, the truth that people are created to solve problems and overcome the limitations of their nature you make a name for yourself #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Purpose quotes by Ikechukwu Joseph
#96. Elijah found his substitute Elisha in his purpose doing work in the field #Quote by Ikechukwu Joseph
Purpose quotes by Ivan Alexander Pozo-Illas
#97. For those who seek a lifestyle of meaning served by purpose than listen well. To live rightly is a grace from
God(dess) of the Most High. Albeit it is not meant to be an easy feat either in its pursuit. To live a life of well being one must find a balance that is appropriate to one's own purpose in life. Once found and understood correctly, then one can live by such a hallmark of fortitude. Otherwise one will wander far and wide in a haze of confusion not valuing themselves truly. Find your balance and it will lead you back to yourself and God(dess) awaiting you with open arms. Amen. #Quote by Ivan Alexander Pozo-Illas
Purpose quotes by Josh Mandel
#98. We need to do a top/bottom review of the federal government and for every agency administration bureaucracy that is not called for in the United States Constitution, we have to really ask the question what is its purpose, how many people work there, how much does it cost the taxpayers and what is the value to our society. #Quote by Josh Mandel
Purpose quotes by Anonymous
#99. Unlike information, it cannot be dispensed via blogs and Internet chatter. Since we are drowning in an ocean of information, the most precious commodity in modern society is wisdom. Without wisdom and insight, we are left to drift aimlessly and without purpose #Quote by Anonymous
Purpose quotes by Jen Hatmaker
#100. I don't want my kids safe and comfortable. I want them BRAVE ... I don't want to be the reason my kids choose safety over courage. I hope I never hear them say, 'Mom will freak out,' or 'My parents will never agree to this.' May my fear not bind their purpose here. Scared moms raise scared kids. Brave moms raise brave kids. Real disciples raise real disciples. #Quote by Jen Hatmaker
Purpose quotes by Jamin Goggin
#101. How we handle our disappointment with God reveals the heart of our idolatry. But that is the very point! The dryness God ushers in to our lives is for the very purpose of bringing these idolatries to the surface. This is why dryness is not a problem to be fixed. This is not a season to work through. This is the high calling of God to be present with him wherever he leads, and to utilize this season to be with him who is always with us, even when we feel like he has abandoned us. #Quote by Jamin Goggin
Purpose quotes by Bill Johnson
#102. J ESUS PRIMARY MISSION IS summed Up In This One Line: "For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil" (1 John 3:8). That was Jesus' assignment; it was the disciples' assignment, and it is your assignment as well. God's purpose in saving you was not simply to rescue you and keep you busy until He shipped you off to Heaven. His purpose was much bigger; He commissioned you to demonstrate the will of God, "on earth as it is in heaven," helping to transform this planet into a place that is radiant and saturated with His power and presence. This is the very backbone of the Great Commission, and it should define your life and mine. #Quote by Bill Johnson

Purpose quotes by Roger Angell
#104. Any baseball is beautiful. No other small package comes as close to the ideal design and utility. It is a perfect object for a man's hand. Pick it up and it instantly suggests its purpose; it is meant to be thrown a considerable distance - thrown hard and with precision. #Quote by Roger Angell

Purpose quotes by Paul David Tripp
#107. We all face things that appear to make little sense and don't seem to serve any good purpose. So rest is never found in the quest to understand it all. No, rest is found in trusting the One who understands it all and rules it all for his glory and our good. #Quote by Paul David Tripp
Purpose quotes by Ellen Kaplan
#108. A Puritan twist in our nature makes us think that anything good for us must be twice as good if it's hard to swallow. Learning Greek and Latin used to play the role of character builder, since they were considered to be as exhausting and unrewarding as digging a trench in the morning and filling it up in the afternoon. It was what made a man, or a woman -- or more likely a robot -- of you. Now math serves that purpose in many schools: your task is to try to follow rules that make sense, perhaps, to some higher beings; and in the end to accept your failure with humbled pride. As you limp off with your aching mind and bruised soul, you know that nothing in later life will ever be as difficult.

What a perverse fate for one of our kind's greatest triumphs! Think how absurd it would be were music treated this way (for math and music are both excursions into sensuous structure): suffer through playing your scales, and when you're an adult you'll never have to listen to music again. And this is mathematics we're talking about, the language in which, Galileo said, the Book of the World is written. This is mathematics, which reaches down into our deepest intuitions and outward toward the nature of the universe -- mathematics, which explains the atoms as well as the stars in their courses, and lets us see into the ways that rivers and arteries branch. For mathematics itself is the study of connections: how things ideally must and, in fact, do sort together -- beyond, around, #Quote by Ellen Kaplan

#110. It pretty much defeats the purpose of bedtime reading if you fall asleep before the kids do. And you tend to wake up with a matchbox stuck on the end of your nose and/or a potty on your head. #Quote by Mal Peet
Purpose quotes by Michael Gove
#111. I think the principal purpose of education is to allow each of us, when we become adults, to shape our own future. #Quote by Michael Gove
Purpose quotes by Jeff Myers
#112. When the people of a nation stop communicating, they lose the common purpose that made them great. Their cities become ghost towns. People live aimlessly because they have no cause for which they are willing to die. The cry of the populace is 'Just leave me alone'. Perhaps the ultimate hell is that the wish will be granted. It is not unlikely that our own nation will collapse not through an explosive roar, but through a deafening silence. This silence must be broken in our generation. We may never get another chance. #Quote by Jeff Myers
Purpose quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#113. The world does not know how to concentrate on working. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Purpose quotes by Sigmund Freud
#114. We have long observed that every neurosis has the result, and therefore probably the purpose, of forcing the patient out of real life, of alienating him from actuality. #Quote by Sigmund Freud
Purpose quotes by Fernando Pessoa
#115. We may know that the work we continue to put off doing will be bad. Worse, however, is the work we never do. A work that's finished is at least finished. It may be poor, but it exists, like the miserable plant in the lone flowerpot of my neighbour who's crippled. That plant is her happiness, and sometimes it's even mine. What I write, bad as it is, may provide some hurt or sad soul a few moments of distraction from something worse. That's enough for me, or it isn't enough, but it serves some purpose, and so it is with all of life. #Quote by Fernando Pessoa
Purpose quotes by Bill Watterson
#116. Calvin: I used to hate writing assignments, but now I enjoy them. I realized that the purpose of writing is to inflate weak ideas, obscure poor reasoning, and inhibit clarity. With a little practice, writing can be an intimidating and impenetrable fog! Want to see my book report?
Hobbes: (Reading Calvin's paper) "The Dynamics of Interbeing and Monological Imperatives in Dick and Jane: A Study in Psychic Transrelational Gender modes."
Calvin: Academia, here I come! #Quote by Bill Watterson
Purpose quotes by Kurt Cobain
#117. We were just amazed we were putting out a record. We were, and are, still learning. But we've never cared much for professionalism as long as the energy was there. Like our live shows: We're out of tune and use a lot of feedback. That's not on purpose or because we don't care, we're just musically and rhythmically retarded and we play so hard that we can't tune our guitars fast enough. #Quote by Kurt Cobain

#120. You find your purpose when your love for someone else becomes bigger than your fears. #Quote by A.L. Jackson
Purpose quotes by Samad Behrangi
#121. I might face death any minute now! But I should try not to put myself in harms' way as long as I can live. Of course it is not important if I die, because this is going to happen anyway. I know my purpose, my purpose is: How will my life or death impact the lives of others? #Quote by Samad Behrangi
Purpose quotes by Colin S. Gray
#122. American strategic [nuclear] forces do not exist solely for the purpose of deterring a Soviet nuclear threat or attack against the U.S. itself. Instead, they are intended to support U.S. foreign policy. #Quote by Colin S. Gray
Purpose quotes by Marianne Williamson
#123. Enchanted partnership begins with the conscious understanding, on the part of two people, that the purpose of their relationship is not so much material as spiritual, and the internal skills demanded by it are prodigious. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Purpose quotes by Mavis Staples
#124. I never sang for a Grammy, for money, for fame. That's my whole purpose for singing: for people, for the fans. #Quote by Mavis Staples
Purpose quotes by Robert Greene
#125. If you want to be powerful in life you have to enjoy the process. You have to get pleasure out of making the thing that you're making. There has to be that kind of purpose behind it. If your purpose is simply gaining power, if that becomes your end in life then you end up sort of destroying yourself because you lose the sense of detachment that's very necessary. #Quote by Robert Greene
Purpose quotes by William Shakespeare
#126. What to ourselves in passion we propose, The passion ending, doth the purpose lose. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Purpose quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#127. Secrecy has many advantages, for when you tell someone the purpose of any object right away, they often think there is nothing to it. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Purpose quotes by Hiroshi Hamaya
#128. For years my only purpose was to do documentary photos for magazines, without any idea that they were part of a larger project. It was as if I were carried along by a stream - even though I believed that the current was taking me in the right direction. #Quote by Hiroshi Hamaya
Purpose quotes by Mike Cosper
#129. All human creativity is an echo of God's creativity. When God makes man, he forms him in the dirt, breathes life into him, and sends him out in the world. We've been playing in the dirt ever since. Just as God took something he'd made, shaped it, breathed life and meaning into it, and transformed it into something new, so we set about our own business, taking creation, shaping it, and giving it new meaning and purpose. Clay becomes sculpture. Trees become houses. Sounds are arranged in time to become music. Oils, pigments, and canvas are arranged to become paintings. Various metals, glass, and petroleum products become iPhones. The same is true of stories. There is nothing new under the sun, and our stories - no matter how fresh and new they might feel - are all a way of "playing in the dirt," wrestling with creation, reimagining it, working with it, and making it new. Our stories have a way of fitting into the bigger story of redemption that overshadows all of life and all of history. Because that bigger story is the dirt box in which all the other stories play. #Quote by Mike Cosper
Purpose quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#130. Dr. Jubal Harshaw, professional clown, amateur subversive, and parasite by choice, had long attempted to eliminate "hurry" and all related emotions from his pattern. Being aware that he had but a short time left to live and having neither Martian nor Kansan faith in his own immortality, it was his purpose to live each golden moment as if it were eternity - without fear, without hope, but with sybaritic gusto. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Purpose quotes by Yogi Bhajan
#131. Our purpose in this life is to live in higher consciousness and to teach others to live in higher consciousness. But the best test to that consciousness is humility, selflessness, and sweetness. When you teach, teach with honesty, truthfulness, and straightforwardness. As a teacher, never compromise. As a man, always compromise. The teacher who compromises is an idiot; a person who does not compromise is an idiot. Because the teacher does not teach for himself, but for the higher consciousness. And higher consciousness will never compromise with lower consciousness. This is a straight law and that has to be considered as a law; that has to be observed as a law. #Quote by Yogi Bhajan

#132. Were they, for some purpose almost too cunning for belief, only disguised as themselves? #Quote by T.H. White
Purpose quotes by Steve Martin
#133. I would like a wine. The purpose of the wine is to get me drunk. A bad wine will get me as drunk as a good wine. I would like the good wine. And since the result is the same no matter which wine I drink, I'd like to pay the bad wine price. #Quote by Steve Martin
Purpose quotes by Jacob Needleman
#134. What is [the role of money] in the search for meaning? Is our relationship to it one of the chief factors that keeps us in our prison, or could it also be a tool for breaking out, for awakening to a life filled with intensity of purpose? #Quote by Jacob Needleman

Purpose quotes by Hannah Richell
#137. Who was it who said, 'the most beautiful things in the world are the most useless: peacocks and lilies, for instance'?"
"I think that was Ruskin," says Jack.
"Ha!" laughs Charles. "There's truth in that. Could have included women, too." Charles laughs loudly at his own joke.
"Only if you're to assume a woman's sole purpose in life is to look good," counters Lillian.
"Well of course... there's looking good... and there's child-bearing," adds Charles, still looking ahead at the bird.
Lillian grips the bag in her lap a little more tightly.
If the artist seated behind them is aware of the tension, he deflects artfully. "I think Ruskin misses the point," he says. "Beauty is never useless. It has purpose. Look at us, sitting here. We've ceased all other activity just to pause for a moment and wonder at the sight of this bird. The extraordinary jolts us from the mundane and makes us feel something. It reminds us we're alive."
"Rather like art," says Lillian, after a moment.
Jack meets her gaze in the wing-mirror and nods. "Yes. Art. Music. Love."
Lillian drops her gaze, unexpected heat flooding her cheeks. #Quote by Hannah Richell
Purpose quotes by Nalini Singh

Purpose quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#140. Amelia took a deep breath. "What you didn't mention, Mr. Rohan, was that if a Roma steals a woman from her bed according to tradition, it is with the purpose of marriage in mind. And the so-called stealing is prearranged and encouraged by the bride-to-be."
Cam gave her a charming smile, deliberately dispelling the tension. "It lacks subtlety, but it hastens the proceedings considerably, doesn't it? No asking for the father's permission, no banns, no prolonged betrothal. Very efficient, a Romany courtship. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Purpose quotes by Pete Seeger

Purpose quotes by Edward T. Welch
#142. Depressed people avoid people and church commitments, but they can also complain about abject isolation. The answer is to humbly accept your purpose. "Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching" (Heb. 10:25). Churches are not perfect. How could they be when we are the church? But the Spirit is with the gathering of his people. Church is where you will know more of God's grace. #Quote by Edward T. Welch
Purpose quotes by Martin Heidegger
#143. To this man, who overcomes himself, Nietzsche gives a name which is easily misunderstood. He calls him 'the superman'. But Nietzsche does not mean a type who casts off 'humanity,' to make sheer caprice the law and titanic rage the rule. The superman is the man who first leads the essential nature of existing man over into its truth, and so assumes that truth. Existing man, by being thus determined and secured, in his essential nature, is to be rendered capable of becoming the future master of the earth - of wielding to high purpose the powers that will fall to future man in the nature of the technological transformation of the earth and of human activity. The essential figure of this man, the superman rightly understood, is not a product of an unbridled and degenerate imagination rushing headlong into the void. #Quote by Martin Heidegger
Purpose quotes by Frederic Bastiat
#144. The statement, "The purpose of the law is to cause justice to reign," is not a rigorously accurate statement. It ought to be stated that the purpose of the law is to prevent injustice from reigning. In fact, it is injustice, instead of justice, that has an existence of its own. Justice is achieved only when injustice is absent. #Quote by Frederic Bastiat
Purpose quotes by Daniel Wallace
#145. There is no passion. There is solely obsession.
There is no knowledge. There is solely conviction.

Only me. #Quote by Daniel Wallace
Purpose quotes by Henning Mankell
#146. Although many of his other novels are brilliant there is a power in 'Oliver Twist' that I believe Dickens never managed to retrieve. It is as if he was sent to this earth with the sole purpose of writing this book. #Quote by Henning Mankell
Purpose quotes by Bertrand Russell

Purpose quotes by Douglas Clegg
#148. We kill, kill, kill. Flesh, spirit, whatever gets in our way. It's like our whole purpose is to extinguish life. And for those who live, there's memory, like a curse. We're such a mixture of frailty and cruelty. #Quote by Douglas Clegg
Purpose quotes by Brand Blanshard
#149. Thinking in art and morals and even mathematics is neither the reflection in consciousness of a mechanical order in the brain nor the tracing with the mind's eye of some empirical order in its object, but an endeavour to realize in thought an ideal order which would satisfy an inner demand. The nearer thought comes to its goal, the more it finds itself under constraint by that goal, and dominated in its creative effort by aesthetic or moral or logical relevance. These relations of relevance are not physical or psychological relations. They are normative relations that can enter into the mental current because that current is ... teleological. Their operation marks the presence of a different type of law, which supervenes upon physical and psychological laws when purpose takes control. #Quote by Brand Blanshard
Purpose quotes by August Kubizek
#150. Externally Hitler sill appears a drifting character: he has failed at school, has no employment, has been rejected by the Academy, is in Vienna for no clearly stated purpose, lives on a pittance eked out by painting postcards. But behind this shiftless exterior Kubizek constructs what must have been there, although it was not apparent to casual acquaintances: the character of the man who, from these beginnings, without any other natural advantages besides his own personality, became the most powerful and terrible tyrant and conqueror of modern history. Here we see - along with the incipient monomania, the repetitive cliches, and the Wagnerian romanticism of his later years - the early evidence of that unbreakable will power, that extraordinary self-confidence. We see the penniless, unemployed, unemployable young Hitler, at sixteen, confidently rebuilding in his imagination the city of Linz, as he was afterwards to rebuild it in fact, and never for a moment doubting that he would one day carry out these improbable plans; we see him exercising over an elderly Austrian upholsterer that irresistible hypnotic power with which he was afterwards to seduce a whole nation; we see him, in Vienna, fortifying himself against a corrupt and purposeless society by adopting an iron asceticism, like some ancient crusader guarding himself against corruption in a pagan world. And then turning to detail, we see in Vienna, when Kubizek was closest to him, the working of Hitler's mind as it feels #Quote by August Kubizek
Purpose quotes by Devdutt Pattanaik
#151. Like animals that seek food for their survival, humans yearn for meaning for their sanity: what is our value, our purpose and our identity in this world? As long as we seek validation from the world around us, we are entrapped by aham. As soon as we realize that all meaning comes from within, that it is we who make the world meaningful, we are liberated by atma. #Quote by Devdutt Pattanaik
Purpose quotes by Charles Dickens
#152. "Ghost of the Future," he exclaimed, "I fear you more than any spectre I have seen. But as I know your purpose is to do me good, and as I hope to live to be another man from what I was, I am prepared to bear you company, and do it with a thankful heart. Will you not speak to me?" #Quote by Charles Dickens
Purpose quotes by Michelle Anderson Picarella
#153. If you wish to discuss strong faith, let's begin with those shunned by other faiths as being the bad seed, and still wake up each morning with self-worth and purpose. That is strength in faith. #Quote by Michelle Anderson Picarella

Purpose quotes by John F. MacArthur Jr.
#155. To acknowledge that there are such fundamental differences between the genders, and that men an women were designed for different roles, many not correspond with modern feminist sensibilities, but this is after all, what God's own Word says. God created men and women differently with a purpose, and His plan for them reflects their differences. Scripture is clear in teaching that wives should be subject to the authority of their husbands in marriage and that women are to be under the authority and instruction of men in the church. #Quote by John F. MacArthur Jr.

Purpose quotes by Holly Mosier
#157. The most important reason for your "no" is that you need your downtime so you won't behave like a jerk because you're depleted. And you don't want to battle an appetite spiked by the stress of overcommitment. But that's your secret; others don't need that information. So just smile, say no, thank you, and keep moving. #Quote by Holly Mosier
Purpose quotes by Karin Slaughter
#158. Claire didn't understand the appeal of being drugged. She had thought the purpose was to make you numb, but if anything, she was feeling everything much too intensely. She couldn't shut down her brain. She felt shaky. Her tongue was too thick for her mouth. Maybe she was doing it wrong. #Quote by Karin Slaughter

Purpose quotes by E.W. Jackson
#163. When one hears the word meditation, it conjures an image of Maharishi Yoga talking about finding a mantra and striving for nirvana. The purpose of such meditation is to empty oneself. [Satan] is happy to invade the empty vacuum of your soul and possess it. That is why people serve Satan without ever knowing it or deciding to, but no one can be a child of God without making a decision to surrender to him. Beware of systems of spirituality which tell you to empty yourself. You will end up filled with something you probably do not want, #Quote by E.W. Jackson

Purpose quotes by L.B. Simmons
#165. I'm glad to be alive.

I want to exist just so I can experience her.
I want to live, to feel, to laugh, and to love with her. #Quote by L.B. Simmons
Purpose quotes by Martyn Stanley
#166. Vexis listened, then shook her head, her eyes full of sorrow. 'YOU are the fool! You cannot rob people of their beliefs and expect them to just accept it. Even now, I mourn the death of Avanti every day. Even though I now know she was never real. The idea of Avanti was real. Serving Avanti gave me a purpose, I felt she was guiding and encouraging me. Now I have nothing, I am reduced to simply "making it up as I go along". I hate you Brael. I will never forgive you for what you did.'
Brael took a deep breath. 'You were always making it up as you went along. You just didn't know it. People need to take responsibility for their actions. There is one person guiding me, and that is me. I will live as long as I can and I will try to leave this world a better place for my presence. That is enough purpose for all. #Quote by Martyn Stanley
Purpose quotes by Immanuel Kant

Purpose quotes by William Lane Craig
#170. This is reality in a universe without God: there is no hope; there is no purpose. It reminds me of T.S. Eliot's haunting lines:
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.
What is true of mankind as a whole is true of each of us individually: we are here to no purpose. If there is no God, then our life is not fundamentally different from that of a dog. #Quote by William Lane Craig
Purpose quotes by Kasi Kaye Iliopoulos
#171. Send silent blessings to those that oppose you, so they may also find peace within themselves - and the strength and perseverance to embark on their life path. #Quote by Kasi Kaye Iliopoulos

Purpose quotes by Steve Maraboli

Purpose quotes by George John Romanes
#178. Pleasures and pains must have been evolved as the subjective accompaniment of processes which are respectively beneficial or injurious to the organism, and so evolved the purpose or to the end that the organism should seek the one and shun the other. #Quote by George John Romanes

#179. Success is knowing your God given life purpose and pursuing it Passionately, Persistently, and Consistently until you die. #Quote by Tom Cunningham
Purpose quotes by Garrison Keillor
#180. What keeps faith cheerful is the extreme persistence of gentleness and humor. Gentleness is everywhere in daily life, a sign that faith rules through ordinary things: through cooking and small talk, through storytelling, making love, fishing, tending animals and sweet corn and flowers, through sports, music, and books, raising kids-all the places where the gravy soaks in and grace shines through. Even in a time of elephantine vanity and greed, one never has to look far to see the campfires of gentle people. Lacking any other purpose in life, it would be good enough to live for their sake. #Quote by Garrison Keillor
Purpose quotes by Steve Maraboli
#181. You've been given the innate power to shape your life ... but you cannot just speak change, you have to LIVE change. Intent paired with action builds the bridge to success. You can't just want it; you have to do it, live it ... BE it! Success isn't something you have, it's something you DO! #Quote by Steve Maraboli

Purpose quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#183. The laws keep up their credit, not by being just, but because they are laws; 'tis the mystic foundation of their authority; they have no other, and it well answers their purpose. They are often made by fools; still oftener by men who, out of hatred to equality, fail in equity; but always by men, vain and irresolute authors. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne

Purpose quotes by Neil Postman
#189. Thomas Jefferson ... knew what schools were for
to ensure that citizens would know when and how to protect their liberty ... It would not have come easily to the mind of such a man, as it does to political leaders today, that the young should be taught to read exclusively for the purpose of increasing their economic productivity. #Quote by Neil Postman
Purpose quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#190. How many people have I heard claim their children as the greatest accomplishment and comfort of their lives? It's the thing they can always lean on during a metaphysical crisis, or a moment of doubt about their relevancy - If I have done nothing else in this life, then at least I have raised my children well.

But what if, either by choice or by reluctant necessity, you end up not participating in this comforting cycle of family and continuity? What if you step out? Where do you sit at the reunion? How do you mark time's passage without the fear that you've just fritted away your time on earth without being relevant? You'll need to find another purpose, another measure by which to judge whether or not you have been a successful human being. I love children, but what if I don't have any? What kind of person does that make me?

Virginia Woolf wrote, "Across the broad continent of a woman's life falls the shadow of a sword." On one side of that sword, she said, there lies convention and tradition and order, where "all is correct." But on the other side of that sword, if you're crazy enough to cross it and choose a life that does not follow convention, "all is confusion. Nothing follows a regular course." Her argument was that the crossing of the shadow of that sword may bring a far more interesting existence to a woman, but you can bet it will also be more perilous. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert

#191. I would step into a place of being lined up with a sense of purpose and my inner compass, and everything was going in the same direction. Then I'd get lazy and get off the track. And then things would start to fall apart, and I'd back up and get it together again. #Quote by Kathy Mattea
Purpose quotes by Tahereh Mafi
#192. I don't know what's wrong with me tonight. I feel off, unbalanced. Aching for something. I'm losing sight of my purpose, my sense of direction. I always tell myself that I'm fighting every day for hope, for the salvation of humanity, but every time I survive only to return to yet more loss and devastation, something comes loose inside of me. It's like the people and places I love are the nuts and bolts keeping me upright; without them, I'm just scrap metal. #Quote by Tahereh Mafi
Purpose quotes by Lindy West
#193. Art isn't indiscriminate shit-flinging. It's pure communication, crafted with intention and care. Every comedian on every stage is saying what he's saying on purpose. So shouldn't we be welcome to examine that purpose, contextualize it within our culture at large, and critique what we find? The #Quote by Lindy West
Purpose quotes by Gabor Mate
#194. The purpose is not to justify or rationalize but to understand. Justification is another form of judgment every bit as debilitating as condemnation. When we justify, we hope to win the judge's favour or to hoodwink her. Justification connives to absolve the self of responsibility; understanding helps us assume responsibility. When we don't have to defend ourselves against others or, what's more, against ourselves, we are open to seeing how things are. #Quote by Gabor Mate
Purpose quotes by Ayn Rand
#195. The frustrated wretch who professes love for the inferior and clings to those less endowed, in order to establish his own superiority by comparison. The man whose sole aim is to make money. Now I don't see anything evil in a desire to make money. But money is only a means to some end. If a man wants it for a personal purpose - to invest in his industry, to create, to study, to travel, to enjoy luxury - he's completely moral. But the men who place money first go much beyond that. Personal luxury is a limited endeavor. What they want is ostentation: to show, to stun, to entertain, to impress others. They're second-handers. Look #Quote by Ayn Rand
Purpose quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#196. That divided and rebel mind, that distrust of a sentiment because our arithmetic has computed the strength and means opposed to our purpose, these [158] have not. Their mind being whole, their eye is as yet unconquered, and when we look in their faces we are disconcerted. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Purpose quotes by LaShaun Middlebrooks Collier
#197. You were born with a song in the seat of your soul; let the life that you live be the singing of it. #Quote by LaShaun Middlebrooks Collier
Purpose quotes by Oswald Chambers
#198. I chose you . . ." (John 15:16). Keep these words as a wonderful reminder in your theology. It is not that you have gotten God, but that He has gotten you. God is at work bending, breaking, molding, and doing exactly as He chooses. And why is He doing it? He is doing it for only one purpose - that He may be able to say, "This is My man, and this is My woman." We have to be in God's hand so that He can place others on the Rock, Jesus Christ, just as He has placed us. #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Purpose quotes by Charles M. Schulz
#199. My life has no purpose, no direction, no aim, no meaning, and yet I'm happy. I can't figure it out. What am I doing right? #Quote by Charles M. Schulz
Purpose quotes by Elizabeth George
#200. God's purposes are achieved through the whole of your life, not in fragments of a moment, a day, or a year. #Quote by Elizabeth George
