As you know, this is one of my favorite topics.  If you miss your purpose in life you spend years toiling and never fully satisfied.  Even though this is a subject I think about, and write about, a lot, I can often need some inspiration.  Many times I find it in quotes from others.

Below are 9 of my favorite purpose in life quotes.  To me these quotes just sum up my own thoughts so well.  I hope they too inspire you!
