Purpose quotes
Purpose
I cannot believe that the purpose of life is (merely) to be happy. I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate. I think it is above all to matter, to count, to stand for something. To have it make some difference that you lived at all.

- Leo Rosten
Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction.

- Kennedy, John F.
As her sons have seen her: the mother in patriarchy: controlling, erotic, castrating, heart-suffering, guilt-ridden, and guilt-provoking; a marble brow, a huge breast, an avid cave; between her legs snakes, swamp-grass, or teeth; on her lap a helpless infant or a martyred son. She exists for one purpose: to bear and nourish the son.

- Rich, Adrienne
To be President of the United States, sir, is to act as advocate for a blind, venomous, and ungrateful client; still, one must make the best of the case, for the purposes of Providence.

- Updike, John
Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government's purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.

- Justice Louis D. Brandeis
Everything happens for a reason and a purpose, and it serves you.

- Robbins, Anthony
She knows what is the best purpose of education: not to be frightened by the best but to treat it as part of daily life.

- John Mason Brown
Party leads to vicious, corrupt and unprofitable legislation, for the sole purpose of defeating party.

- Cooper, James F.
We are no longer in a state of growth; we are in a state of excess. We are living in a society of excrescence. The boil is growing out of control, recklessly at cross purposes with itself, its impacts multiplying as the causes disintegrate.

- Baudrillard, Jean
Man becomes greater in proportion to knowing himself and his faculties. Let him become conscious of what he is and he will soon also learn what he should be.

- Schelling, Felix E.
Fork, n. An instrument used chiefly for the purpose of putting dead animals into the mouth.

- Ambrose Bierce
The great and glorious masterpiece of man is how to live with purpose.

- Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
The presence of a long-term, conscious goal has helped me maintain stability through the ubiquitous changes of over half a century.

- Craig Mary
Culture is the tacit agreement to let the means of subsistence disappear behind the purpose of existence. Civilization is the subordination of the latter to the former.

- Kraus, Karl
The purpose of man is in action not thought.

- Carlyle, Thomas
It's not so much how busy you are, but why you are busy. The bee is praised. The mosquito is swatted.

- O'Connor, Mary
Why harass with eternal purposes a mind to weak to grasp them?

- Horace
My philosophy, in essence, is the concept of man as a heroic being, with his own happiness as the moral purpose of his life, with productive achievement as his noblest activity, and reason as his only absolute.

- Ayn Rand
Without knowing what I am and why I am here, life is impossible.

- Tolstoy, Count Leo
We know not of the future, and cannot plan for it much. But we can hold our spirits and our bodies so pure and high, we may cherish such thoughts and ideals, and dream such dreams of lofty purpose, that we can determine and know what manner of men we will be whenever and wherever the hour stricks that calls to noble action..., No man becomes suddenly different from his habit and cherished thought.

- Joshua L. Chamberlain
