Well there's one that actually tells the meaning of life from a Christian's point of view anyway.
“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter fear God and keep his commandments for this is the whole duty of man.” That's Ecclesiastics 12:13 King James Version I think. Another one is
“Let thy conversations be without covetousness and be content with such things yea have for he have said 'I will never leave thy nor forsake thy.'” That's Hebrews 13:5. Also King James Version.

I like Hebrews 4:15. It's nice to know that Jesus understands the struggles we have in our flesh.
For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as {we are, yet} without sin.

Mine would have to be this:
Matthew 11:25-26 wrote:25At that time Jesus said, "I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. 26Yes, Father, for this was your good pleasure.
I always try to read and understand scripture from a child's eye for Jesus also said:
Matthew 18:1-4 wrote:1At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, "Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?" 2He called a little child and had him stand among them. 3And he said: "I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
and of course, this:
Matthew 19:13-15 wrote:13Then little children were brought to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked those who brought them. 14Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." 15When he had placed his hands on them, he went on from there.

The universe was formed at God's command, so that what was seen was not made out of what was visible. (Hebrews 11:3)

the earth proclaims the glory of God and the work of his hands. (Psalm 19)

I like how these work together as a strong implication of how not only did God create our universe from his existence, but that our earth shows it. it's like, it reminds me that there are beauty here, but it's a beauty lacking, uncomplete...

I found that by being an annoying person you're less annoyed by people.

--Psalm 14:1--
"The fool has said in his heart 'there is not God'."

[i know that its not the full verse, but its still my favorite]

also,

--Psalm 27:1--
"The LORD is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall i fear?
The LORD is the strength of my life;
Of whom shall i be afraid?"
Therefore, submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. James 4:7

it is all about submitting before God, then, and only then, will we have the promise given in Luke 10:19

I Cor. 13:4-8a:

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails...

Difficult to chose, but I love this one:
Jer 8:9 The wise are ashamed, they are terrified, and are captured. Lo, they have turned away from the Word of Jehovah; and what wisdom is in them?

John 9:24-25 :o

"Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner.

He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see."

It is just that everything seemed so dark and meaningless before I met Christ. Now, through Him, I see. 8)
