  1. Each quote inspired in their own right, Richard, and in addition to your own insights and quote here I do like the Winston Churchill quote too!

    It is imperative that each of us explores and discovers our own purpose in life, and we do indeed have purpose. Some realize that purpose early in life while others may need greater passage of time before they too recognize their true purpose. Without purposeful motivation in our lives we will likely amble through life and do little for ourselves let alone anyone else…not a very fulfilling life to lead.
