If you don't stand up for something, you may fall for anything.
Best Quotes about Purpose
What we must try to be, of course, is ourselves and wholeheartedly. We must find out what we really are and what we really want.
A pilgrim is a wanderer with purpose.
What is my life if I am no longer useful to others.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
The first thing to do in life is to do with purpose what one purposes to do.
Anyone can live heroically and successfully for one day. The man who achieves a high purpose makes that day the pattern for all the days of his life.
There is no better test of a man's work than time, which also reveals the thoughts which lay hidden in his breast.
Great minds have purposes; others have wishes.
All men should strive to learn before they die, what they are running from, and to, and why.
A just cause is not ruined by a few mistakes.
You, betrayed by time and space, Seek and find your proper place.
Wizard, Her Majesty's
Each of our acts makes a statement as to our purpose.
The one who adapts his policy to the times prospers, and likewise that the one whose policy clashes with the demands of the times does not.
The capacity for hope is the most significant fact of life. It provides human beings with a sense of destination and the energy to get started.
Winners are people with definite purpose in life.
Mix a conviction with a man and something happens.
Powell, Adam Clayton
Better to die of something than to die in old age of nothing.
Battle doesn't need a purpose; the battle is its own purpose.
It is essential that we enable young people to see themselves as participants in one of the most exciting eras in history, and to have a sense of purpose in relation to it.
Only conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ; so that whether I come and see you or remain absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel. [Philippians 1:27]
Bring me men to match my mountains: Bring me men to match my plains: Men with empires in their purpose and new eras in their brains.
Foss, Sam Walter
The crowning blessing of life is to be born with a bias to some pursuit.
Tallentyre, S. G.
The great and glorious masterpiece of man is how to live with purpose.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Above all be of single aim; have a legitimate and useful purpose, and devote yourself unreservedly to it.
I just wake up and say, You're a bum, go do something worthwhile today.
People should follow their own energy.
The purpose in life is to collaborate for a common cause; the problem is nobody seems to know what it is.
Every man is occasionally visited by the suspicion that the planet on which he is riding is not really going anywhere; that the Force which controls its measured eccentricities hasn't got anything special in mind. If he broods on this somber theme long enough he gets the doleful idea that the laughing children on a merry-go-round or the thin, fine hands of a lady's watch are revolving more purposely than he is.
Many people flounder about in life because they do not have a purpose, an objective toward which to work.
Don't become a wandering generality. Be a meaningful specific.
To the person with a firm purpose all men and things are servants.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
What we determine we often break. Purpose is but the slave to memory.
Knowing our personal mission further enhances the flow of mysterious coincidences as we are guided toward our destinies. First we have a question, then dreams, daydreams, and intuitions lead us toward the answers, which usually are synchronistically provided by the wisdom of another human being.
No one sat me down with a piece of paper and said, ?This is what is expected of you. But I?m lucky enough in the fact that I have found my role I love being with people.?
Diana, Princess of Wales
It is your work in life that is your ultimate seduction.
The sense of paralysis proceeds not so much out of the mammoth size of the problem but out of the puniness of the purpose.
Our chief usefulness to humanity rests on our combining power with high purpose. Power undirected by high purpose spells calamity, and high purpose by itself is utterly useless if the power to put it into effect is lacking.
Blessed are the single-hearted, for they shall enjoy much peace. If you refuse to be hurried and pressed, if you stay your soul on God, nothing can keep you from that clearness of spirit which is life and peace. In that stillness you will know what His will is.
Multitudes of people, drifting aimlessly to and fro without a set purpose, deny themselves such fulfillment of their capacities, and the satisfying happiness which attends it. They are not wicked, they are only shallow. They are not mean or vicious; they simply are empty -- shake them and they would rattle like gourds. They lack range, depth, and conviction. Without purpose their lives ultimately wander into the morass of dissatisfaction. As we harness our abilities to a steady purpose and undertake the long pull toward its accomplishment, rich compensations reward us. A sense of purpose simplifies life and therefore concentrates our abilities; and concentration adds power.
Men achieve a certain greatness unawares, when working to another aim.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The purpose of a man's heart are deep waters, but a man of understanding draws them out. [Proverbs 20:5]
The soul which has no fixed purpose in life is lost; to be everywhere, is to be nowhere.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end
The only failure a man ought to fear is failure in cleaving to the purpose he sees to be best.
Your purpose is to make your audience see what you saw, hear what you heard, feel what you felt. Relevant detail, couched in concrete, colorful language, is the best way to recreate the incident as it happened and to picture it for the audience.
For I say unto you in all sadness of conviction that to think great thoughts you must be heroes as well as idealists. Only when you have worked alone -- when you have felt around you are a black gulf of solitude more isolating than that which surrounds the dying man, and in hope and despair have trusted to your own unshaken will -- then only can you gain the secret isolated joy of the thinker, who knows that a hundred years after he is dead and forgotten men who have never heard of him will be moving to the measure of his thought -- the subtle rapture of postponed power, which the world knows not because it has no external trappings, but which to his prophetic vision is more real than that which commands an army. And if this joy should not be yours, still it is only thus you can know that you have done what lay in you to do -- can say that you have lived, and be ready for the end.
Holmes Jr., Oliver Wendell
The longest journey is the journey inwards. Of him who has chosen his destiny, Who has started upon his quest for the source of his being.
I know of no such unquestionable badge and ensign of a sovereign mind as that of tenacity of purpose...
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Ordinary people think merely of spending time. Great people think of using it.
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.
Purpose is what gives life a meaning.
Parkhurst, Charles H.
