The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.
The purpose of life is not to be happy, the purpose of life is to matter.
Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.
The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.
You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.
The purpose of our lives is to be happy.
You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.
Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.
To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else.
The great use of life is to spend it for something that will outlast it.
What is the essence of life? To serve others and to do good.
Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
What is the purpose of life? I believe that the purpose of life is to be happy.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
It does not matter how long you are spending on the earth, how much money you have gathered or how much attention you have received. It is the amount of positive vibration you have radiated in life that matters.
The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.
I don't know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who will have sought and found how to serve.
Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life.
Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
