Explore the value of Purpose
You don't have to preach honesty to men with creative purpose. Let a human being throw the engines of his soul into the making of something, and the instinct of workmanship will take care of his honesty.
When you take the time to actually listen, with humility, to what people have to say, it's amazing what you can learn. Especially if the people who are doing the talking also happen to be children.
Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr
Joan of Arc
The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.
George T. Hewitt
Nothing contributes so much to tranquilize the mind as a steady purpose- a point on which the soul may fix its intellectual eye.
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

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.
