Great Quotes from Rick Warren’s Book, " The Purpose Driven Life"

“Familiarity breeds complacency.”
“We are the product of our past but we dont have to be prisoners of it.”
“Experience is not what happens to you. It is what you do with what happens to you. Don’t waste your pain; use it to help others.”
“Resentment always hurts you more than it does the person you resent. While your offender has probably forgotten the offense and gone on with life, you continue to stew in your pain, perpetuating the past. Listen: those who hurt you in the past cannot continue to hurt you now unless you hold on to the pain through resentment. Your past is past! Nothing will change it. You are only hurting yourself with your bitterness. For your own sake, learn from it, and then let it go.”
“Other people are going to find healing in your wounds. Your greatest life messages and your most effective ministry will come out of your deepest hurts.”
“Time is your most precious gift because you only have a set amount of it. You can make more money, but you can’t make more time. When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you’ll never get back. Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time. It is not enough to just say relationships are important; we must prove it by investing time in them. Words alone are worthless. “My children, our love should not be just words and talk; it must be true love, which shows itself in action.” Relationships take time and effort, and the best way to spell love is 
“T-I-M-E.”
“The only really happy people are those who have learned how to serve.”
“Life is a gift…
Life is a test…
Life is temporary assignment….”
“If you have felt hopeless, hold on! Wonderful changes are going to happen in your life as you begin to live it on purpose.”
“Life minus love equals zero.”
“It’s not what you do, but how much love you put into it that matters.”
“Why is this happening to me? Why am I having such a difficult time? One answer is that life is supposed to be difficult! It’s what enables us to grow. Remember, earth is not heaven!”
“Humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less. Humility is thinking more of others. Humble people are so focused on serving others, they don’t think of themselves.”
“The truth is, almost everything we do is done poorly when we first start doing it – that’s how we learn.”
“The purpose of life is far greater than your own personal fulfillment, your peace of mind, or even your happiness.  It’s far greater than your family, your career, or even your wildest dreams and ambitions.”
“…life is about letting God use you for his purposes, not your using him for your own purpose.”
“The easiest way to discover the purpose of an invention is to ask the creator of it.  The same is true of discovering your life’s purpose: Ask God.”
“God has not left us in the dark to wonder and guess.  He has clearly revealed his five purposes for our lives through the Bible.  It is our owner’s manual, explaining why we are alive, how life works, what to avoid, and what to expect in the future.”
“You discover your identity and purpose through a relationship with Jesus Christ.“The purpose of your life fits into a much larger, cosmic purpose that God has designed for eternity.”
“Listen: Those who have hurt you in the past cannot continue to hurt you now unless you hold on to the pain through resentment.  Your past is past! Nothing will change it.  You are only hurting yourself with your bitterness.  For your own sake, learn from it, and then let it go.”
“Fear is a self-imposed prison that will keep you from becoming what God intends for you to be.  You must move against it with the weapons of faith and love.”
“Without a purpose, life is a motion without meaning, activity without direction, and events without reason.  Without a purpose, life is trivial, petty, and pointless.”
“The greatest tragedy is not death, but life without purpose.”
“Your purpose becomes the standard you use to evaluate which activities are essential and which aren’t.  You simply ask, “Does this activity help me fulfill one of God’s purposes for my life?”
“Without a clear purpose you have no foundation on which you base decisions, allocate your time, and use your resources.  You will tend to make choices based on circumstances, pressures, and your mood at the moment.”
“It is impossible to do everything people want you to do.  You have just enough time to do God’s will.  If you can’t get it all done, it means you’re trying to do more than God intended for you to do.”
“Purpose-driven life leads to a simpler lifestyle and a saner schedule.”
“If you want your life to have impact, focus it!  Stop dabbling.  Stop trying to do it all.  Do less.  Prune away even good activities and do only that which matters most.  Never confuse activity with productivity.  You can be busy without a purpose, but what’s the point?”
“It is usually meaningless work, not overwork that wears us down, saps our strength, and robs our joy.”
“You weren’t put on earth to be remembered.  You were put here to prepare for eternity.”
“God won’t ask about your religious background or doctrinal views.  The only thing that will matter is, did you accept what Jesus did for you and did you learn to love and trust him? What did you do with what I gave you?  What did you do with your life – your gifts, talents, opportunities, energy, relationships, and resources God gave you?  Did you spend them on yourself, or did you use them for the purposes God made for you?”
“When you fully comprehend that there is more to life than just here and now, and you realize that life is just preparation for eternity, you will begin to live differently.  You will start living in light of eternity, and that will color how you handle every relationship, task, and circumstance… The closer you live to God the smaller everything else appears.”
