From the Sages ~ What is the Meaning of Life?

Read on about the meaning of life from some of the greatest minds.

"Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart.
Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakens." ~Jung

"The sole meaning of life is to serve humanity by contributing to the establishment of the kingdom of God, which can only be done by the recognition and profession of the truth by every man."~Leo Tolstoy

"Vain are the beliefs and teachings that make man miserable, and false is the goodness that leads him into sorrow and despair, for it is man's purpose to be happy on this earth and lead the way to felicity and preach its gospel wherever he goes.
He who does not see the kingdom of heaven in this life will never see it in the coming life."

~Khalil Gibran

"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."

~Martin Luther King

"You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it.
That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies, that is why you must sing and dance, and write poems, and suffer, and understand, for all that is life."

~Jiddu Krishnamurti

"As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well used brings happy death."~Leonardo da Vinci

"Your work is to discover your work and then with all your heart to give yourself to it."~Buddha
