Welcome to Poems On Purpose With Quotations. Everybody feels we should have purpose in life. You all will agree that a purposeless life is no life. Purpose in life means goal in life, to reach destination in life or success in life. Ultimately our main purpose is to get satisfaction, peace of mind and be happy with our achievement.

Through this post, let us understand purpose in life through poems written by me and through Quotations on Purpose.

Before we go ahead and read poems and quotations, let us understand the following from the materials available in internet…..



  • the aim or intention of something

Example – The main purpose of this meeting is to decide what we should do next.

  • something set up as an object or an end to be obtained: intention, resolution, determination: a subject under discussion or an action in course of execution purpose
  • Purpose is the end for which something is done, created or for which it exists. It is part of the topic of intensionality and goal seeking behavior. Related concepts and subjects: goal, a desired result or possible outcome. Intention, the state of intending something or the action intended.

To psychologists, purpose is an abiding intention to achieve a long – term goal that is both personally meaningful and makes a positive mark on the world.

Now, let us read the three poems on Purpose with the following titles ….

If you don’t understand

The purpose of your life

Be sorry dear …..

If you don’t understand purpose of your life

You are missing a lot

You are missing almost everything in your life.

If you don’t have a clear plan

And goal in your life

Be sorry dear ….

You may not reach anywhere.

Let us take utmost care

Let us not feel sorry in our life

Let us strive hard with enjoyment

To understand life and purpose of life.

Let us make our life purposeful to others

Let us make our life very simple

And grab opportunities to enjoy life.

Let us not be stupid

Rather we build good relationship with others

By honestly accomplishing our duties and responsibilities.

Let us find peace in our life

We should never be afraid to commit mistakes

Let us learn from mistakes.


Over – all let us understand and enjoy life

With clear purpose, passion, discipline and dedication



Be Sorry dear….
