The Purpose of Life


“The purpose of life is not to be happy.
The purpose of life is to matter, to be productive,
to have it make some difference that you lived at all.
Happiness, in the ancient, noble sense, means self-fulfillment—
and is given to those who use to the fullest
whatever talents God or luck or fate bestowed upon them.”
