QUOTE(S) OF THE DAY: The Meaning of Life?

Two views of what some see as life’s great question:

_Quote When … anyone …would ask [Joseph] Campbell, ‘Isn’t it basically a meaning of life for which we are all searching?’ Campbell would reply, emphatically, ‘No, that’s not it—it’s deepening and opening the experience of life that we’re really after… Life itself is without meaning. You bring the meaning to it… Being alive is the meaning.”
                   - quoted in  A Fire in the Mind: A Life of Joseph Campbell,
                                           by Stephen & Robert Larsen

And from John Cox’s QuiptoonsQT-reading


  1. Is there any relation there between [Joseph] Campbell and John Campbell from TV3.

  2. Aha! Got you! There IS a meaning of life. I heard it myself. As a matter of fact the meaning of life is 42. It is true that the question is not understood, but the answer is 42. Yes, yes, yes, you depresss me but you can't fool me.
