Great minds have purposes, others have wishes.
Washington Irving

I would rather be ashes than dust; I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brillant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot; I would rather be in a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow than in a sleepy and permanent planet; the proper function of man is to live, not to exist; I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them; I shall USE my time.
Jack London

To have a grievance is to have a purpose in life.
Alan Coren
The Sanity Inspector.

In men whom men condemn as ill,
I find so much of goodness still,
In men whom men pronounce divine,
I find so much of sin and blot,
I do not dare to draw a line
Between the two, where God has not.
Joaquin Miller

To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else.
Emily Dickinson
