“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
It isn’t just about happy feelings or who ends up with the most toys.
It’s about thinking of others first, pitching in and sometimes—getting a little dirty.
