Purpose Quotes

Quote of the Day

Art for art's sake, with no purpose, for any purpose perverts art. But art achieves a purpose which is not its own.
View quotes by Benjamin Constant

The highest purpose is to have no purpose at all. This puts one in accord with nature, in her manner of operation.
View quotes by John Cage

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.
View quotes by Thomas Carlyle

It is well that we have hobbies and crafts, not only do they give a sense of purpose but they have a purpose of themselves, too.

We have arrived at the point where the public are right in thinking that John Prescott no longer serves a purpose in governing the country, only a purpose in trying to hold together the fragile peace in the Labour Party
View quotes by Andrew Lansley

I do think there is a sense of Tony Blair having lost his sense of purpose and direction, so my advice to him is to recover that sense of purpose and direction and that remains the best option
View quotes by Charles Clarke

God is working His purpose out as year succeeds to year,
Gid os working His purpose out and the time is drawing near;
Nearer and nearer draws the time, the time that shall surely be,
When the earth shall be filled with the glory of God as the waters cover the sea. [Hymn]

View quotes by David Letterman

View quotes by Henry Adams

A lie with a purpose is one of the worst kind, and the most profitable.
View quotes by Finley Dunne

In crossing a heath, suppose I pitched my foot against a stone, and were asked how the stone came to be there: I might possibly answer, that for any thing I know to the contrary, it had lain there for ever: nor would it perhaps be very easy to show the absurdity of this answer. But suppose I had found a watch upon the ground, and it should be inquired how the watch happened to be in that place; I should hardly think of the answer which I had before given, that for any thing I knew, the watch might have always been there. Yet why should not this answer serve for the watch, as well as for the stone? why is it not as admissable in the second case as in the first? For this reason, and for no other, viz., that when we come to inspect the watch, we perceive (what we could not discover in the stone) that its several parts are framed and put together for a purpose . . . This mechanism being observed . . . the inference, we think, is inevitable, that the watch must have had a maker; that there must have existed, at some time, and at some place of other, an artificer or artificers, who formed it for the purpose which we find it actually to answer; who comprehended its construction, and designed its use.
