Great Quotes

Helen Keller:

"Many people have a wrong idea of what constitutes true
happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification,
but through fidelity to a worthy purpose."

Robert Burns:

"The purpose of life is a life of purpose."

Victor Frankl:

"What man actually needs is not a tensionless state but
rather the striving and struggling for some goal worthy of
him. What he needs is not the discharge of tension at any
cost, but the call of a potential meaning waiting to be
fulfilled by him."

Here's a quote from James Allen's classic book 'As A Man

"Until thought is linked with purpose there is no
intelligent accomplishment. They who have no central
purpose in their life fall easy prey to worries, fears,
troubles, and self pityings, all of which are indications
of weakness, which lead, just as surely as deliberately
planned sins, to failure, unhappiness, and loss, for
weakness cannot persist in a power evolving universe."
