Purpose Quotes

Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love.


The secret to success is constancy to purpose.

Benjamin Disraeli

Millions long for immortality who do not know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon.


Above all be of single aim; have a legitimate and useful purpose, and devote yourself unreservedly to it.

James Allen

What mankind wants is not talent; it is purpose.

Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton

The man without a purpose is like a ship without a rudder -- waif, a nothing, a no man. Have a purpose in life, and, having it, throw such strength of mind and muscle into your work as God has given you.

Thomas Carlyle

The first thing to do in life is to do with purpose what one purposes to do.

Pablo Casals

Great minds have purposes; others have wishes.

Washington Irving

Only the consciousness of a purpose that is mightier than any man and worthy of all men can fortify and inspirit and compose the souls of men.

Walter Lippmann

The soul which has no fixed purpose in life is lost; to be everywhere, is to be nowhere.

Michel Eyquem De Montaigne

There is no road to success but through a clear strong purpose. Nothing can take its place. A purpose underlies character, culture, position, attainment of every part.

Thornton T. Munger

Strong lives are motivated by dynamic purposes; lesser ones exist on wishes and inclinations.

Kenneth Hildebrand

Find a purpose in life so big it will challenge every capacity to be at your best.

David O. McKay

Having thus chosen our course, without guile and with pure purpose, let us renew our trust in God, and go forward without fear and with manly hearts.

Abraham Lincoln

Is it not good to know what follows from what, even if it is not necessarily FAPP? [FAPP is Bell's suggested abbreviation of "for all practical purposes."] Suppose for example that quantum mechanics were found to resist precise formulation. Suppose that when formulation beyond FAPP was attempted, we find an unmovable finger obstinately pointing outside the subject, to the mind of the observor, to the Hindu scriptures, to God, or even only Gravitation? Would that not be very, very interesting?

John Stewart Bell
