Oveta Culp Hobby

  • Give me my sword.

    • Oveta Culp Hobby
  • A purpose gives meaning to life. It is like the hub in a wheel — with every spoke fitted into it to make a strong and perfect circle. Without such a hub, spokes will not radiate evenly and your wheel will lack strength, will tend to break apart on the first good bump it hits. Given a strong hub, a strong purpose, a person can take a surprising number of shocks and bumps on the outside rim without sustaining permanent damage.
