Explore the value of Purpose
If you can't figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. For your passion will lead you right into your purpose.
The longer I live, the more I am certain that the great difference between the great and the insignificant, is energy—invincible determination—a purpose once fixed, and then death or victory.
Sir Thomas Buxton
You are only as strong as your purpose, therefore let us choose reasons to act that are big, bold, righteous and eternal.
Joan of Arc
We have all known the long loneliness and we have learned that the only solution is love and that love comes with community.
Every piece of the universe, even the tiniest little snow crystal, matters somehow. I have a place in the pattern, and so do you.
Commitment means that it is possible for a man to yield the nerve center of his consent to a purpose or cause, a movement or an ideal, which may be more important to him than whether he lives or dies.
George T. Hewitt
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
I cannot believe that the purpose of life is to be happy. I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all.
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
When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE
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.
