The Meaning Of Life

What is the meaning of life, the universe and everything ... as far as we know humans are unique in thinking about this and its been one of the major motivating forces in our history shaping art, religion, politics, philosophy, science as well as being behind many conflicts and wars.

“The Ultimate Answer to Life, The Universe and Everything is...42!” ~  Douglas Adams

Success, fame, fortune, love, happiness ... winning, getting ahead .... the answer to the meaning of life is as varied as the people who ask it but the meaning of life is less about knowing the answer than in being able to ask the question at all.

"So remember when you're feeling very small and insecure How amazingly unlikely is your birth" 
~ Monty Python - Galaxy Song

In many ways life is like a game but its not a game to win or lose it's a game to appreciate  - its taking part that matters ... don't let it be that "life is wasted on the living".

“The meaning of life is whatever you ascribe it to be. Being alive is the meaning.” 
~ Joseph Campbell

“Live each day as if your life had just begun.”  
~Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
