משנה אבות ג:א - Ethics of our Fathers/Mishnah Avot 3:1 "Know where you came from and where you are going, and before whom you are to report and to stand for judgment."

A powerful statement that encapsulates a spiritual life. If you study the answers to these 3 questions and you have the Torah (Bible) as your guidebook through the journey then you are creating a fulfilling and meaningful life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I read this beautiful commentary on this verse as well: Through humility you will also come to fear God. It will cause you to always think about (3:1) "where you came from and where you are going," and that while alive you are only like a maggot and a worm as after death, and before Whom you will eventually stand for judgment, the Glorious King. ⠀
