Qoute - passions and Prejudices

'I cannot believe that the purpose of life is to be "happy." I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all, to matter and to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all.'

Passions and Prejudices

Leo Calvin Rosten (April 11, 1908 - February 19, 1997)

  1. Agree!
    Rich Mullins zei het ook heel mooi:
    I believe what I believe is what makes me what I am.
    I did not make it, no it is making me.
    It is the very Truth of God and not the invention of any man.
    Ons leven is ons dus niet gegeven om alleen maar 'gelukkig' te zijn, dat is niet hèt doel..
    Wel in Zijn liefde léven en door te geven aan de mensen om ons heen, in elke situatie. Geloof, genade, hoop en liefde.

  2. I believe that the purpose of life is to put God first, gain Wisdom, and share our Saviour. Then the rest will just come.
