What is the Noble Life leading to Nibbana?

A certain Bhikkhu once asked the Blessed Buddha:
Venerable Sir, the Noble Life, the Noble Life, is it often said.
What, Sir, is this Noble Life? And what is the final goal of this Noble Life?
This Noble 8-fold Way, Bhikkhu, is the Noble Life; namely:

Right View  (sammā-ditthi)
Right Motivation  (sammā-sankappa)
Right Speech  (sammā-vācā)
Right Action  (sammā-kammanta)
Right Livelihood  (sammā-ājīva)
Right Effort  (sammā-vāyāma)
Right Awareness  (sammā-sati)
Right Concentration  (sammā-samādhi)

The destruction of greed, the destruction of hate, and the destruction
of ignorance: This is the final goal of the Noble Life.
