I simply reply that no one ever asks me why I play tennis. Or read philosophy. So why should martial arts be any different?
I couldn't resist another old quote:

"Battle doesn't need a purpose; the battle is its own purpose. You don't ask why a plague spreads or a field burns. Don't ask why I fight."
