The Purpose of life


What are you here for? What is the purpose of your life? Apparently very few children ever think of asking themselves this question. Indeed many people will go through their whole lives from birth to death and it will never occur to them to consider the matter at all. The result is that there is no development at all. They have allowed everything to happen to them instead of they, themselves, making things happen for themselves. Only very few have realized that the purpose of life is growth, progress from ignorance to enlightenment and from unhappiness to happiness. - K. Sri Dhammananda 

To comprehend the purpose and meaning of life, one must above all love life and become totally submerged in the turmoil of living... he who understands the sheer experience of living, will, by the same token, understand the theory of life. - Kostya Ryabtsev

The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience. - Eleanor Roosevelt

The purpose of life is to accomplish your dreams and goal – make the most of what you have and have made a difference while you are here. - Unknown
