The Purpose of Life

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.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Being rich isn’t about money. Being rich is a state of mind. Some of us, no matter how much money we have, will never be free enough to take time to stop and eat the heart of the watermelon. And some of us will be rich without ever being more than a paycheck ahead of the game.” — Harvey B. Mackay

“Success is a process that continues not a status that you reach. If you are alive, there are lessons to be learned.” — Denis Waitley

“The reading of all good books is indeed like a conversation with the noblest men of past centuries who were the authors of them, nay a carefully studied conversation, in which they reveal to us none but the best of their thoughts.” — Rene Descartes

“In helping others, we shall help ourselves, for whatever good we give out completes the circle and comes back to us.” — Flora Edwards

“There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.” — John Andrew Holmes

“Goodness is a special kind of truth and beauty. It is truth and beauty in human behavior.” — H. A. Overstreet

Materialistic knowledge can only provide a type of happiness that is dependent upon physical conditions. It cannot provide happiness that springs from inner development.
