“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.”

Mark Twain

“When you stay on purpose and refuse to be discouraged by fear, you align with the infinite self, in which all possibilities exist.”

Dr. Wayne Dyer

“If you can't figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. For your passion will lead you right into your purpose.”

T.D. Jakes

“There is no greater gift you can give or receive than to honor your calling. It's why you were born. And how you become most truly alive.”

Oprah Winfrey

“The heart of human excellence often begins to beat when you discover a pursuit that gives you a sense of meaning, joy, or passion.”

Terry Orlick

“It's not so much how busy you are, but why you are busy.”

Mary Flannery O'Connor

“When you know who you are; when your mission is clear and you burn with the inner fire of unbreakable will; no cold can touch your heart; no deluge can dampen your purpose. You know that you are alive.”

Chief Seattle

“I am not afraid. I was born to do this.”

Joan of Arc

“That thing that you do, after your day job, in your free time, too early in the morning, too late at night. That thing you read about, write about, think about, in fact fantasize about. That thing you do when you’re all alone and there’s no one to impress, nothing to prove, no money to be made, simply a passion to pursue. That’s it. That’s your thing. That’s your heart, your guide. That’s the thing you must, must do.”

Jes Allen

“We don't beat the Grim Reaper by living longer, we beat the Reaper by living well and living fully, for the Reaper will come for all of us. The question is what do we do between the time we are born and the time he shows up.”

Randy Pausch

“A man without a purpose is like a ship without a rudder.”

Thomas Carlyle

“The purpose that you wish to find in life, like a cure you seek, is not going to fall from the sky. ...I believe purpose is something for which one is responsible; it's not just divinely assigned.”

Michael J. Fox

I think that many people are frustrated with the fast pace of today. The lacking value most can't pinpoint is purpose. Is what I am spending my time with useful, meaningful? The answer is individual. Facebook, money, work, friends you chose, etc. Is there purpose in this? Good and bad, there is always purpose.
