Chapter 5, Page 11, Book 15

The purpose of life is to listen - to yourself, to your neighbor, to your world and to God and, when the time comes, to respond in as helpful a way as you can find... from within and without.

Fred 'McFeely' Rogers, 1928-2003
Also know as 'Mr. Rogers

May 11 - Love chooses wisely

If you're really listening
If you're awake to the poignant beauty of the world,
your heart breaks regularly.
In fact, your heart is made to break,
it's purpose is to burst open again and again
so that it can hold evermore wonder.

Andrew Harvey

I think that when you show love, you are fulfilling your purpose in life.  Living a life of purpose reflects who you are deep inside, your beliefs, values and passion for living. It is about following your heart and doing what you love to do with passion and purpose

There are many wonderful things that will never be done if you do not do them. 

Charles D. Gill

Life minus love equals zero.  The best expression of love is time. The most desired gift of love is…focused attention.

Don’t wait for other people to be loving, giving, compassionate, grateful, forgiving, generous, or friendly... lead the way!

Steve Maraboli 

Living on purpose is the only way to really live.  Everything else is just existing. To fulfill your life purpose - love more. 

Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life. Meaning does not lie in things. Meaning lies in us.

Marianne Williamson

Go after a life of love as if your life depended on it—because it does!

God's definition of what matters is pretty straightforward. He measures our lives by how we love.

Francis Chan

So beautifully put by Marianne Williamson, "Meaning does not lie in things. Meaning lies in us."
