The Purpose

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
version, means self-fulfillment and is
given to those who use it to the fullest,
                                              whatever talents God or luck or fate
                                            has bestowed on them.

                                                Lee Rosten
