Let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit.
Life finds its purpose and fulfillment in the expansion of happiness.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
Marriage, like everything else in the world, is holy or unholy depending on the purpose the mind ascribes to it.
Mastering our emotions has nothing to do with asceticism or repression, for the purpose is not to break the emotions or deny them but to 'break in' the emotions, making them teachable because they are tamed.
My purpose is to teach and demonstrate what is possible. To demonstrate love of God and good. Remember what my role is as a woman: to be... good. My role as a mother: to teach, support and nurture my offspring. My role as a grandmother: to remind everybody - right where you are, God is.
No man or woman is an island. To exist just for yourself is meaningless. You can achieve the most satisfaction when you feel related to some greater purpose in life, something greater than yourself.

P. J. O'Rourke

Dwight L. Moody
Singleness of purpose is one of the chief essentials for success in life, no matter what may be one's aim.
John D. Rockefeller
So though there are many things I would have done differently, I submit to God's sovereignty and His purpose in my life and I thank Him that He brought me the way He brought me and gave me what He gave me when He thought I could handle it.
T. D. Jakes
