QUOTE(S) OF THE DAY: The Meaning of Life?
Two views of what some see as life’s great question:
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.”
