Meaning Of Life quotes by Avijeet Das
#2. There is nothing else to life. To have a passion and die for it! #Quote by Avijeet Das
Meaning Of Life quotes by Steven Pinker

Your regrets, vengeance and faith will no longer serve you #Quote by Celia Belt
Meaning Of Life quotes by John Corey Whaley
#6. When I asked him the meaning of life, Dr. Webb got very quiet and then told me life has no one meaning, it only has whatever meaning each of us puts on our own life. I'll tell you now that I still don't know the meaning of mine. And Lucas Cader, with all his brains and talent, doesn't know the meaning of his, either. But I'll tell you the meaning of all this. The meaning of some bird showing up and some boy disappearing and you knowing all about it. The meaning of this was not to save you, but to warn you instead. To warn you of confusion and delusion and assumption. To warn you of psychics and zombies and ghosts of your lost brother. To warn you of Ada Taylor and her sympathy and mothers who wake you up with vacuums. To warn you of two-foot-tall birds that say they can help, but never do. #Quote by John Corey Whaley
Meaning Of Life quotes by Avijeet Das
#7. I believe that conversations with the right persons are really important in life. #Quote by Avijeet Das
Meaning Of Life quotes by Slavoj Zizek

Meaning Of Life quotes by Denzel Washington
#12. I think that we all at some point are in search of something - a higher power, whatever you want to call it, the meaning of life. I know I was, especially at even my son's age in my 20s, and dabbling in Eastern philosophies and yoga and Buddhism and Christianity and Islam. I kind of touched them all, you know, just trying to figure out the meaning of life or if nothing else, figure myself out. #Quote by Denzel Washington
Meaning Of Life quotes by Denis Johnson
#13. Generally the closest I ever came to wondering about the meaning of it all was to consider that I must be the victim of a joke. #Quote by Denis Johnson
Meaning Of Life quotes by Wendy Mass
#14. I blame my dad for my sweet tooth. His motto was 'Life is short; eat dessert first.' How can I argue with that? #Quote by Wendy Mass
Meaning Of Life quotes by Sukant Ratnakar
#15. We all see the same thing, but interpretive it differently. #Quote by Sukant Ratnakar
Meaning Of Life quotes by Eric Micha'el Leventhal
#16. Our instrumental part in the symphony of life is to allow love to create a space within our own awareness, through which the undreamed mystery may emerge as a knowable reality. #Quote by Eric Micha'el Leventhal
Meaning Of Life quotes by Deepak Chopra
#17. A child raised with spiritual skills will be able to answer the most basic questions about how the universe works; she will understand the source of creativity both within and outside herself; she will be able to practice nonjudgment, acceptance, and truth, which are the most valuable skills anyone can possess for dealing with other people; and she will be free from the crippling fear and anxiety about the meaning of life that is the secret dry rot inside the hearts of most adults, whether they can admit it or not. The deepest nurturing you can give your child is spiritual nurturing. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Meaning Of Life quotes by Ivan Goncharov
#18. Ah! This is retribution for Promethean fire! Besides being patient, you must also love this sadness and respect your doubts and questions. They are an abundant excess, a luxury of life, and they appear more at the summits of happiness, when you have no crude desires. They are not born in the midst of mundanity. They have no place where there is grief and want. The masses go along without knowing the fog of doubts or the anguish of questions. But for anyone who has encountered them at the right time they are dear visitors, not a hammer.'

'But there's no coping with them. They bring anguish and indifference to nearly everything.' she added indecisively.

'But for how long? Afterward they refresh life,' he said. 'They lead to an abyss from which nothing can be gained, and they force you to look again at life, with even greater love. They summon up your tested powers to struggle with it, as if expressly to let them sleep afterward.'

'This fog and these specters torment me!' she complained. 'Everything is bright and all of a sudden a sinister shadow is cast over life! Are there no means against this?'

'What do you mean? Your buttress is in life! Without it, life is sickening, even without any questions!'

Meaning Of Life quotes by Wendy Mass
#19. Mr. Rudolph reaches out and lifts the flower out of its vase. "To a flower, this photograph means nothing. So when you ask what is the meaning of life, there can be no answer that will apply to everyone and everything. What is a photograph, or a sunset, to a flower? We all bring our own perceptions, needs, and experiences to everything we do. We will all interpret an event, or a sunset, differently."

He pauses, and I am trying to keep up with him. "Basically," I (Jeremy) say slowly, concentrating on my words. "What you're saying is that it's all relative. The meaning of the sunset, or of life itself, is different for everyone?"

Exactly," he says.

... As we head slowly into the big room, I turn to him and ask, "But even if the sunset has different meanings for everyone, it still has meaning, right?"

"That's a tricky question to answer," Mr. Rudolph says, stopping to replace the frame back on the wall. "That sunset will still shine just as surely, just as colorfully, whether it is shining on a wedding or a war. So it would seem that the sunset itself doesn't have inherent meaning; it is just doing its job. If the sunset doesn't have meaning apart from what we give it, does a rock? Or a fish? Or life itself? But just because a park bench, for instance, doesn't have meaning, that doesn't mean it doesn't have worth."

... We have reached the door now, and I'm not sure I'm any closer to understanding what's in the box. My shou #Quote by Wendy Mass
Meaning Of Life quotes by Eric Micha'el Leventhal
#20. Synchronicity is the soul's reminder of authorship. #Quote by Eric Micha'el Leventhal
Meaning Of Life quotes by Kenny Loggins
#21. My trust in a higher power that wants me to survive and have love in my life, is what keeps me moving forward. #Quote by Kenny Loggins
Meaning Of Life quotes by Jay Woodman
#22. What we think affects our life so much that life is for each of us just what we think it is. So the question of what life means has individual answers for each of us. #Quote by Jay Woodman
Meaning Of Life quotes by Paulo Coelho
#23. The ordinary man thinks that yielding to doubts and worries is a sign of sensibility, of spirituality. Acting thus, he remains distant from the true meaning of life, for his reduced reasoning turns him into the saint or monster he imagines he is, and before he realizes it, he is caught in the trap he has set himself. This type of person loves being told what he should do, but even more than that, he loves not following sound advice - simply in order to anger the generous soul who, at a certain moment, was concerned about him. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Meaning Of Life quotes by Eleesha
#24. As we celebrate the evolution of the life of one so special, we embrace the meaning of life, itself. #Quote by Eleesha
Meaning Of Life quotes by Avijeet Das
#25. Nothing compares to the feeling that you get when you are in love. #Quote by Avijeet Das
Meaning Of Life quotes by Emil Cioran
#26. The fact that life has no meaning is a reason to live
moreover, the only one. #Quote by Emil Cioran
Meaning Of Life quotes by Renée Chae
#27. The radically phenomenal thing about the truth is once you find it, you can dig and dig and you're just going to reveal more and more. There is no end when one starts digging in the direction of the truth. It's the ultimate life adventure. #Quote by Renée Chae
Meaning Of Life quotes by J. Edward Vance
#28. What is the meaning of life?" asked man.
"Seek and ye shall find," said God. "That was my method."
The man replied, "How might I do that?"
"Take a setting," instructed God. "Add some dirt and water, mold it into something likeable. Let there be light to break up the darkness. Plant some trees and fruit. Don't forget to put in a few animals. Then create a few wild things that are as curious in thought as you, and let them figure the damned thing out. #Quote by J. Edward Vance
Meaning Of Life quotes by Niels Bohr
#29. The meaning of life consists in the fact that it makes no sense to say that life has no meaning. #Quote by Niels Bohr
Meaning Of Life quotes by Wendy Mass
#30. We are here because over billions of years, countless variables fell into place, any of which could have taken another path. We are essentially a beautiful fluke, as are the millions of other species with which we share this planet. Our cells are composed of atoms and dust particles from distant galaxies, and from the billions of living organisms that inhabited this planet before us. #Quote by Wendy Mass
Meaning Of Life quotes by Ray Bradbury
#31. Why then you're as mad as me. No, madder. For I distrust 'reality' and its moron mother, the universe, while you fasten your innocence to fallible devices which pretend at happy endings. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Meaning Of Life quotes by Wendy Mass
#32. Sometimes people think they are looking for the meaning of life, when really they are looking for an understanding of why they are here. What their purpose is, the purpose of life in general. And that's a much easier question to answer than the meaning of life. #Quote by Wendy Mass
Meaning Of Life quotes by Muditha Champika
#33. One day with knowing the reality is better than hundred years without knowing the reality. #Quote by Muditha Champika
Meaning Of Life quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#34. To be what we are, and to become what we are capable of becoming, is the only end of life. #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
Meaning Of Life quotes by Michio Kaku
#35. Beyond work and love, I would add two other ingredients that give meaning to life. First, to fulfill whatever talents we are born with. However blessed we are by fate with different abilities and strengths, we should try to develop them to the fullest, rather than allow them to atrophy and decay. We all know individuals who did not fulfill the promise they showed in childhood. Many of them became haunted by the image of what they might have become. Instead of blaming fate, I think we should accept ourselves as we are and try to fulfill whatever dreams are within our capability.
Second, we should try to leave the world a better place than when we entered it. As individuals, we can make a difference, whether it is to probe the secrets of Nature, to clean up the environment and work for peace and social justice, or to nurture the inquisitive, vibrant spirit of the young by being a mentor and a guide. #Quote by Michio Kaku
Meaning Of Life quotes by Kosho Uchiyama
#36. KODO SAWAKI: Studying originally meant aspiring to discover the meaning of life. These days studying has become all about getting a job. #Quote by Kosho Uchiyama
Meaning Of Life quotes by Chuck Klosterman
#37. The only people who think the Internet is a calamity are people whose lives have been hurt by it; the only people who insist the Internet is wonderful are those who need it to give their life meaning. #Quote by Chuck Klosterman
Meaning Of Life quotes by Diana Dentinger
#38. There's a way and a place for everyone to contribute to the greater good. Stop going no where fast and go "your where". #Quote by Diana Dentinger
Meaning Of Life quotes by Jose Ortega Y Gasset
#39. [L]ife, individual or collective, personal or historic, is the one entity in the universe whose substance is compact of danger, of adventure. It is, in the strict sense of the word, drama ... [T]he primary, radical meaning of life appears when it is employed in the sense not of biology, but of biography. For the very strong reason that the whole of biology is quite definitely only a chapter in certain biographies, it is what biologists do in the portion of their lives open to biography. #Quote by Jose Ortega Y Gasset
Meaning Of Life quotes by Suzana Trifkovic
#40. I'm an avalanche, waiting to fall on you, to awaken your deepest emotions, your fears, desires, longings, dreams. It is my purpose. I am your dream, through night and day, but if you wish to own me, you will find empty hands and understand that I am just as much an illusion as I am your delusions reality. I can not be owned. I'm real and unreal. I'm everything you love and hate, I'm here to be opposite of you to shape you, because I am your lesson, and my lesson is you. #Quote by Suzana Trifkovic
Meaning Of Life quotes by Rafael   Garcia
#41. ..:When we are more vulnerable, we are more down to earth and more close to our feelings and emotions. We get to see things by what they truly are and what they truly mean. It's then that tears that come down from our eyes clean up our sight. They help us see more clearly and with more compassion and passion. It's in that moment that we truly get to understand the meaning of life and being mercyful. Why? Coz is there that we get to taste it first hand as well:.. #Quote by Rafael Garcia
Meaning Of Life quotes by Eliza Farnham
#42. The ultimate aim of the human mind, in all its efforts, is to become acquainted with Truth. #Quote by Eliza Farnham
Meaning Of Life quotes by Avijeet Das
#43. Something has to be incomplete in our life to make us understand life. Only when we miss something do we realize the importance of that something in our life.

We don't begin to live life when we have everything. We begin to live life when we have something missing and still we find meaning in that existence! #Quote by Avijeet Das
Meaning Of Life quotes by Douglas Adams
#44. The chances of finding out what's really going on in the universe are so remote, the only thing to do is hang the sense of it and keep yourself occupied. #Quote by Douglas Adams
Meaning Of Life quotes by Ilchi Lee
#45. Life is a long journey meant for leaping beyond loneliness to find unchanging freedom and truth. #Quote by Ilchi Lee
Meaning Of Life quotes by Avijeet Das
#46. We meet so many people in life, but we connect to the heart of very few! #Quote by Avijeet Das
Meaning Of Life quotes by Ian McEwan
#47. Self-aware existence. I'm lucky to have it, but there are times when I think that I ought to know better what to do with it. What it's for. Sometimes it seems entirely pointless. #Quote by Ian McEwan
Meaning Of Life quotes by Alexander Den Heijer
#48. Don't spend your entire life building a ship, without ever tasting the salt of the ocean. #Quote by Alexander Den Heijer
Meaning Of Life quotes by Anubhav Mishra
#49. When people say they try to find themselves, their inner self, to understand the meaning of life I smile and I say, instead why don't you create yourself and give a new meaning to your life #Quote by Anubhav Mishra
Meaning Of Life quotes by Thea Bowman
#50. I try to make sense of life. I try to keep myself open to people and to laughter and to love and to have faith. #Quote by Thea Bowman
Meaning Of Life quotes by Anonymous
#51. He has shown you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? But to act justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God. #Quote by Anonymous
Meaning Of Life quotes by Michael Shermer
#52. The question itself [of UFOs] I think is legitimate. It's interesting, it's fascinating. It's mythic in scale and one of the grand questions. It's like the God question or, you know, the meaning-of-life question. It's one of those, on that scale. So you'd have to be made of wood not to be interested and, you know, have they come here? Are they up there? #Quote by Michael Shermer
Meaning Of Life quotes by Victor Frankl
#53. To invoke an analogy, consider a movie: it consists of thousands upon thousands of individual pictures, and each of them makes sense and carries a meaning, yet the meaning of the whole film cannot be seen before its last sequence is shown. However, we cannot understand the whole film without having first understood each of its components, each of the individual pictures. Isn't it the same with life? Doesn't the final meaning of life, too reveal itself, if at all, only at its end, on the verge of death? And doesn't this final meaning, too, depend on whether or not the potential meaning of each single situation has been actualized to the best of their respective individual's knowledge and belief? #Quote by Victor Frankl
Meaning Of Life quotes by Aristotle.
#54. What is the highest good in all matters of action? To the name, there is almost complete agreement; for uneducated and educated alike call it happiness, and make happiness identical with the good life and successful living. They disagree, however, about the meaning of happiness. #Quote by Aristotle.
Meaning Of Life quotes by Steve Kamb
#55. A basic framework for happiness:

- Time spent daily, hopefully in a job that challenges us, but also in our after-hours hobbies.

- An ability to show ourselves that we are making consistent progress and improvements toward a specified goal.

- Energy and attention dedicated each day to an activity that puts us in the zone. #Quote by Steve Kamb
Meaning Of Life quotes by Anthony Liccione
#56. We are soon approaching a refined holiday, "Merry Mas," where Christ will be taken out of its context. #Quote by Anthony Liccione
Meaning Of Life quotes by Chris Kluwe
#57. I normally don't initiate conversations with guys unless they want to talk about certain things - when I'm at the facility, I'm there to play football. If you want to talk about the meaning of life, games, whatever, I'm more than happy to, but when I'm in that building, I'm being paid to play football. Conversely, when I'm not at the facility, that's my life to live. #Quote by Chris Kluwe
Meaning Of Life quotes by Frank Herbert
#58. Life cannot find reasons to sustain it, cannot be a source of decent mutual regard, unless each of us resolves to breathe such qualities into it. #Quote by Frank Herbert
Meaning Of Life quotes by Anonymous
#59. When will I have sufficient leisure/wealth to sit on hay-bale watching moon rise, while in luxurious mansion family sleeps? At that time, will have chance to reflect deeply on meaning of life etc., etc. Have a feeling and have always had a feeling that this and other good things will happen for us! #Quote by Anonymous
Meaning Of Life quotes by Daniel Marques
#60. There are many ways to achieve the same end, and that's the meaning of life - to explore our individuality and joy in living what matches our level of understanding, wisdom and honesty. #Quote by Daniel Marques
Meaning Of Life quotes by Avijeet Das
#61. Cherish every relationship in your life. There are certain things in life that can't be fixed if broken! #Quote by Avijeet Das
Meaning Of Life quotes by Graham Chapman
#62. Oh Lord please don't burn us don't kill or toast your flock. Don't put us on the barbecue or simmer us in stock. Don't bake or baste or boil us or stir-fry us in a wok. #Quote by Graham Chapman
Meaning Of Life quotes by Rajneesh
#63. Life in itself is so beautiful that to ask the question of the meaning of life is simply nonsense. #Quote by Rajneesh
Meaning Of Life quotes by Tarun Lohani
#64. Isn't it the inevitability of death that gives life its meaning and purpose? #Quote by Tarun Lohani
Meaning Of Life quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#65. Life is less a burden without an absolute quest for material possessions #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Meaning Of Life quotes by Ernst Junger
#66. It is a great priviledge to hear from the mouth of an initiate what struggles we are ensnared in and what the meaning is of the sacrifices we are required to make before veiled images. Even if we should hear something evil, it would still be a blessing to see our task as something beyond a senseless cycle of recurrence. #Quote by Ernst Junger
Meaning Of Life quotes by Natasha Pulley
#67. He was not poor - he could afford ten candles & two baths a week. He wasn't going to throw himself in the Thames for the misery of it all and God knew most of London was worse off. All the same, he had a feeling life should not have been about ten candles and two baths a week. #Quote by Natasha Pulley
Meaning Of Life quotes by Avijeet Das
#68. Just being a writer allows one the maturity to have random conversations with random strangers! #Quote by Avijeet Das
Meaning Of Life quotes by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
#69. For some reason, I never felt the need to have kids. My wife feels the same. We don't feel a void. I don't think they would give my life meaning. I do think of the books as my children, though. Whatever is inside of me, I put into my books. #Quote by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Meaning Of Life quotes by Avijeet Das
#70. I don't care about wearing branded clothes or flaunting brands. But I do care about the books that I read and the music that I listen to. #Quote by Avijeet Das
Meaning Of Life quotes by Max Weber
#71. Tolstoi has given the simplest answer, with the words: 'Science is meaningless because it gives no answer to our question, the only question important for us: "What shall we do and how shall we live?"' That science does not give an answer to this is indisputable. The only question that remains is the sense in which science gives 'no' answer, and whether or not science might yet be of use to the one who puts the question correctly. #Quote by Max Weber
Meaning Of Life quotes by Avijeet Das
#72. And you will keep breaking my heart a thousand times. And I will keep joining the pieces back a thousand times. #Quote by Avijeet Das
Meaning Of Life quotes by Abraham Joshua Heschel
#73. In our own lives the voice of God speaks slowly, a syllable at a time. Reaching the peak of years, dispelling some of our intimate illusions and learning how to spell the meaning of life-experiences backwards, some of us discover how the scattered syllables form a single phrase. #Quote by Abraham Joshua Heschel
Meaning Of Life quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#74. About once or twice every month I engage in public debates with those whose pressing need it is to woo and to win the approval of supernatural beings. Very often, when I give my view that there is no supernatural dimension, and certainly not one that is only or especially available to the faithful, and that the natural world is wonderful enough - and even miraculous enough if you insist - I attract pitying looks and anxious questions. How, in that case, I am asked, do I find meaning and purpose in life? How does a mere and gross materialist, with no expectation of a life to come, decide what, if anything, is worth caring about?

Depending on my mood, I sometimes but not always refrain from pointing out what a breathtakingly insulting and patronizing question this is. (It is on a par with the equally subtle inquiry: Since you don't believe in our god, what stops you from stealing and lying and raping and killing to your heart's content?) Just as the answer to the latter question is: self-respect and the desire for the respect of others - while in the meantime it is precisely those who think they have divine permission who are truly capable of any atrocity - so the answer to the first question falls into two parts. A life that partakes even a little of friendship, love, irony, humor, parenthood, literature, and music, and the chance to take part in battles for the liberation of others cannot be called 'meaningless' except if the person living it is also an existential #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Meaning Of Life quotes by Charles Williams
#75. Why was this bloody world created?"
"As a sewer for the stars," a voice in front of him said. "Alternatively to know God and to glorify Him forever."
" [ ... ] The two answers are not, of course, necessarily alternative. #Quote by Charles Williams
Meaning Of Life quotes by Marie Coulson
#76. I will never be through with you, ever. I don't know what I have to do to get you to realize that you're my
everything. I exist to love you, you're my meaning of life, my reason to be, you were made for me and I was made to make you mine. What we have
is too important to me to just throw away because of a picture and an incorrect quote. But you have got to have some faith in me Layla. I would
never hurt you, you have to know that. I may get angry, lose my temper and storm away but I will always calm down and I will always come back. I
could never leave you behind. I'd be lost without you. #Quote by Marie Coulson
Meaning Of Life quotes by Oliver North
#77. An easy life is rarely meaningful and a meaningful life rarely easy. #Quote by Oliver North
Meaning Of Life quotes by Jerry A. Coyne
#78. How can you derive meaning, purpose, or ethics from evolution? You can't. Evolution is simply a theory about the process and patterns of life's diversification, not a grand philosophical scheme about the meaning of life. It can't tell us what to do, or how we should behave. And this is the big problem for many believers, who want to find in the story of our origins a reason for our existence, and a sense of how to behave. #Quote by Jerry A. Coyne
Meaning Of Life quotes by Lisa Cypers Kamen
#79. Life is the journey of coming home to ourselves. #Quote by Lisa Cypers Kamen
Meaning Of Life quotes by Amy Miller
#80. We, animal and human, come to this time and space to have an experience embedded with our own divine purpose. #Quote by Amy Miller
Meaning Of Life quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#81. If you do not know your place in the world and the meaning of your life, you should know there is something to blame; and it is not the social system, or your intellect, but the way in which you have directed your intellect. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Meaning Of Life quotes by Orhan Pamuk
#82. In our household doubts more troubling than these were suffered in silence. The spiritual void I have seen in so many of Istanbul's rich, Westernised, secularist families is evident in these silences. Everyone talks openly about mathematics, success at school, football and having fun, but they grapple with the most basic questions of existence - love,compassion, religion, the meaning of life, jealousy, hatred - in trembling confusion and painful solitude. They light a cigarette, give their attention to the music on the radio, return wordlessly to their inner worlds. #Quote by Orhan Pamuk
Meaning Of Life quotes by Bongha Lee
#83. Our objective as a realist is to maximize our worth, and our objective as a romanticist is to be foolishly youthful. #Quote by Bongha Lee
Meaning Of Life quotes by Haruki Murakami
#84. Writing, to me, is the meaning of life. My life became something special because of writing. My desk is for me what the phone booth is for Clark Kent: Here I become Superman. I can do anything I want when I'm writing. I'm not afraid anymore. I can take anything from my imagination. I can save the world when I'm writing. But as soon as I leave the desk, I become Clark Kent again. Trust me, I am the most ordinary person in the world. I'm a good husband, I don't yell at anyone, never lose it. But I don't have a single idea for my literature in everyday life. When I run, cook or relax on the beach, there is absolutely nothing on my mind. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Meaning Of Life quotes by Lorin Morgan-Richards
#85. The dream is over only when you have become complacent. #Quote by Lorin Morgan-Richards
Meaning Of Life quotes by Virginia Woolf
#86. The gruff murmur, irregularly broken by the taking out of pipes and the putting in of pipes which had kept on assuring her, though she could not hear what was said (as she sat in the window which opened on the terrace), that the men were happily talking; this sound, which had lasted now half an hour and had taken its place soothingly in the scale of sounds pressing on top of her, such as the tap of balls upon bats, the sharp, sudden bark now and then, "How's that? How's that?" of the children playing cricket, had ceased; so that the monotonous fall of the waves on the beach, which for the most part beat a measured and soothing tattoo to her thoughts and seemed consolingly to repeat over and over again as she sat with the children the words of some old cradle song, murmured by nature, "I am guarding you––I am your support," but at other times suddenly and unexpectedly, especially when her mind raised itself slightly from the task actually in hand, had no such kindly meaning, but like a ghostly roll of drums remorselessly beat the measure of life, made one think of the destruction of the island and its engulfment in the sea, and warned her whose day had slipped past in one quick doing after another that it was all ephemeral as a rainbow––this sound which had been obscured and concealed under the other sounds suddenly thundered hollow in her ears and made her look up with an impulse of terror. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Meaning Of Life quotes by Matt Haig
#87. Is happiness the aim?"
"I don't know. I suppose I want my life to mean something. I want to do something good, #Quote by Matt Haig
Meaning Of Life quotes by Lee Child
#88. Some old guy once said that the meaning of life is that it ends. #Quote by Lee Child
Meaning Of Life quotes by Peg O'Connor
#89. Above all else, philosophy ought to aim for clarification - of the self, one's place in the world, and the ways we make meaning. Philosophy, when practiced well, can be useful. It can enable us to grapple in productive ways with questions about the meaning of life and who I am and how I want to be in the world. #Quote by Peg O'Connor
Meaning Of Life quotes by Franz Kafka
#90. The meaning of life is that it ends. #Quote by Franz Kafka
Meaning Of Life quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#91. If we truly knew all the answers in advance as to the meaning of life and the nature of God and the destiny of our souls, our belief in all that would not be a leap of faith and it would not a courageous act of humanity; it would just be ... a prudent insurance policy. I'm not interested in the insurance industry. I am tired of being a skeptic, I'm irritated by spiritual prudence and I feel bored and parched by empirical debate. I don't want to hear it anymore. I couldn't care less about evidence and proof and assurances. I just want God. I want God inside me. I want God to play in my bloodstream the way light amuses itself on water. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Meaning Of Life quotes by Deepak Chopra
#92. There is one experience that brings joy or happiness to every living being. The experience of love. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Meaning Of Life quotes by Debasish Mridha
#93. Life loses its meaning when you forget your purpose. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Meaning Of Life quotes by Avijeet Das
#94. Love is a strange feeling! And you cannot understand what happens to you when it does happen to you. #Quote by Avijeet Das
Meaning Of Life quotes by Utpal Vaishnav
#95. A meaningful life is the life full of meaningful relationships. Create yours. #Quote by Utpal Vaishnav
Meaning Of Life quotes by Tim Sandlin
#96. RC blinked a couple more times and admired the freckles on either side of [Honey's] nose. He would have enjoyed connecting them dot-to-dot with a felt-tip pen. In his fantasy, he would discover the meaning of life spread across her cheekbones. #Quote by Tim Sandlin
Meaning Of Life quotes by Kevin Wilson
#97. Was this how trauma worked? she wondered. Those closest to it remained dumbfounded by the fact that those who weren't present could derive meaning from it? #Quote by Kevin Wilson
Meaning Of Life quotes by Ze Frank
#98. Remember, we're all just tubes with some fancy bits attached, looking for stuff to put in the front, and finding places to put whatever comes out the other side. #Quote by Ze Frank
Meaning Of Life quotes by Dean Koontz
#99. Billy Pilgrim had a theory about diaries.
Women were more likely than men to think that their lives had sufficient meaning to require recording on a daily basis. It was not for the most part a God-is-leading-me-on-a-wondrous-journey kind of meaning, but more an I've-gotta-be-me-but-nobody-cares sentimentalism that passed for meaning, and they usually stopped keeping a diary by the time they hit thirty, because by then they didn't want to ponder the meaning of life anymore because it scared the crap out of them. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Meaning Of Life quotes by Ken Robinson
#100. Human resources are like natural resources; they're often buried deep. You have to go looking for them, they're not just lying around on the surface. You have to create the circumstances where they show themselves. #Quote by Ken Robinson

Meaning Of Life quotes by Haruki Murakami
#108. I don't think it's a question of liking or disliking it," Tengo said ... "It was the one thing he was best at." "Hmm. I see," Kumi said. She pondered this. "But that might very well be the best way to live your life. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Meaning Of Life quotes by Jean Jaures
#109. In our narrow, confined existence, we tend to forget the essence of life ... All of us, whatever our occupation or class, are equally guilty: the employer is lost in the running of his business; the workers, sunk in the abyss of their misery, raise their heads only to cry in protest; we, the politicians, are lost in daily battles and corridor intrigues. All of us forget that before everything else, we are men, ephemeral beings lost in the immense universe, so full of terrors. We are inclined to neglect the search for the real meaning of life, to ignore the real goals - serenity of the spirit and sublimity of the heart ... To reach them - that is the revolution. #Quote by Jean Jaures
Meaning Of Life quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#110. So when I think of, what is the meaning of life, to me, that's not an eternal unanswerable question. To me it is in arms reach of me every day. #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Meaning Of Life quotes by Dalai Lama
#111. The meaning of life is happiness. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Meaning Of Life quotes by Haim Shapira
#112. Ordinary people who live their lives peacefully, whose days gently resemble each other, may happen one day to stop and wonder why and what for do they do the things they do and have been doing for so many years? #Quote by Haim Shapira
Meaning Of Life quotes by Avijeet Das
#113. If you think people will remember and do for you what you did for them then you have not seen the reality of life. The majority of people don't even remember the words that they said to another. So forget about them keeping their promises. Most people change their words according to the situations that they face in life. They keep changing their convictions all the time. You will meet a majority of such people. Do not get affected by these people. They don't even know what they stand for in life! #Quote by Avijeet Das
Meaning Of Life quotes by Massimo Marino
#114. It made our presence in the world meaningful; we still served a purpose. #Quote by Massimo Marino
Meaning Of Life quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#115. It was long before I could believe that human learning had no clear answer to this question. For a long time it seemed to me, as I listened to the gravity and seriousness wherewith Science affirmed its positions on matters unconnected with the problem of life, that I must have misunderstood something. For a long time I was timid in the presence in learning, and I fancied that the insufficiency of the answers which I received was not its fault, but was owing to my own gross ignorance, but this thing was not a joke or a pastime with me, but the business of my life, and I was at last forced, willy-nilly, to the conclusion that these questions of mine were the only legitimate questions underlying all knowledge, and that it was not I that was in fault in putting them, but science in pretending to have an answer for them. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Meaning Of Life quotes by Diana Dentinger
#116. Your life purpose is about you. It is a tangible, practical, everyday way to be that evolves over time as you mature. It is not just a new age, cheesy, flaky, peace and love statement. It is the greatness of who you are taking meaningful action. This is how you stay healthy and happy. Then and only then does your energy ripple out to make the world a better place. #Quote by Diana Dentinger

#119. Jesus was not a carpenter forever. #Quote by Chris Matakas
Meaning Of Life quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#120. The clear awareness of having been born into a losing struggle need not lead one into despair. I do not especially like the idea that one day I shall be tapped on the shoulder and informed, not that the party is over but that it is most assuredly going on - only henceforth in my absence. (It's the second of those thoughts: the edition of the newspaper that will come out on the day after I have gone, that is the more distressing.) Much more horrible, though, would be the announcement that the party was continuing forever, and that I was forbidden to leave. Whether it was a hellishly bad party or a party that was perfectly heavenly in every respect, the moment that it became eternal and compulsory would be the precise moment that it began to pall. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Meaning Of Life quotes by John Sean Doyle
#121. [At] times we have to grab life with both hands, and twist and squeeze and wrench just to extract one sweet drop from this world: But oh how sweet, how nourishing and wholesome, when we discover that even a drop of joy and beauty and hope is possible. #Quote by John Sean Doyle
Meaning Of Life quotes by Jordan B. Peterson
#122. We experience much of our positive emotion in relation to goals. We are not happy, technically speaking, unless we see ourselves progressing - and the very idea of progression implies value. Worse yet is the fact that the meaning of life without positive value is not simply neutral. Because we are vulnerable and mortal, pain and anxiety are an integral part of human existence. We must have something to set against the suffering that is intrinsic to Being. We must have the meaning inherent in a profound system of value or the horror of existence rapidly becomes paramount. Then, nihilism beckons, with its hopelessness and despair. #Quote by Jordan B. Peterson
Meaning Of Life quotes by Lawrence Durrell
#123. Art - the meaning of the pattern of our common actions in reality. The cloth-of-gold that hides behind the sackcloth of reality, forced out by the pain of human memory. #Quote by Lawrence Durrell
Meaning Of Life quotes by Mwanandeke Kindembo
#124. Observe well how the word 'narcissism' is often used into marriages. The victims are often those who have separated with their significant other, rather than being on good terms with them. Therefore, we must dig deeper to the core of the word and discover its true meaning. In return, we will get a glimpse of our mentality and the main attributes that drive us to label each other with that conflicted word. #Quote by Mwanandeke Kindembo
Meaning Of Life quotes by Dora J. Arod
#125. This book is full of empty love quotes. If you are looking for the meaning of life and love, then this book is for you. You won't find the answers here, of course, but you'll be more encouraged than ever to keep on looking. Or maybe you'll be discouraged. Either way, I'll have your money, and you'll have no answers. Sounds like a fair deal to me. #Quote by Dora J. Arod
Meaning Of Life quotes by Durian Sukegawa
#126. All experience adds up to a life lived as only you could. I feel sure the day will come when you can say: this is my life. You may never become a writer or a master cook, but I do believe there will be a time when you can stand tall as yourself in your own unique way. #Quote by Durian Sukegawa
Meaning Of Life quotes by Andrew Potter
#127. The object of their desire, the "essential" core of life, is something called authenticity, and finding the authentic has become the foremost spiritual quest of our time. It is a quest fraught with difficulty, as it takes place at the intersection of some of our culture's most controversial issues, including environmentalism and the market economy, personal identity and the consumer culture, and artistic expression and the meaning of life. #Quote by Andrew Potter
Meaning Of Life quotes by Jean-Luc Nancy
#128. There is no meaning if meaning is not shared, and not because there would be an ultimate or first signification that all beings have in common, but because meaning is itself the sharing of Being. #Quote by Jean-Luc Nancy
Meaning Of Life quotes by Alan Alda
#129. So that's it. I've told you everything I know. Think clearly and think for yourself. Learn to use language to express those thoughts. Love somebody with all your heart. And with everyone, whether you love them or not, find out if you can be helpful. But really, it's even simpler than that. After all this time, and all these talks in public and in private, I think I get it now. If I were taking my friend Arnold's suggestion and spoke from my deathbed, I think I know what I'd say. I see now that I had my meaning all along, I just had to notice it. The meaning of life ... is life. Not noticing life is what's meaningless, even down to the last second. #Quote by Alan Alda
Meaning Of Life quotes by Joseph Campbell
#130. You really can't follow a guru. You can't ask somebody to give The Reason, but you can find one for yourself; you decide what the meaning of your life is to be. People talk about the meaning of life; there is no meaning of life
there are lots of meanings of different lives, and you must decide what you want your own to be. #Quote by Joseph Campbell
Meaning Of Life quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#131. How could drops of water know themselves to be a river? Yet the river flows on. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Meaning Of Life quotes by Aron Ralston
#132. People say that we're searching for the meaning of life. I don't think that's it at all. I think that what we're seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances within our own innermost and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive. #Quote by Aron Ralston
Meaning Of Life quotes by Igor Sikorsky
#133. Our concerns sink into insignificance when compared with the eternal value of human personality - a potential child of God which is destined to triumph over lie, pain, and death. No one can take this sublime meaning of life away from us, and this is the one thing that matters. #Quote by Igor Sikorsky
Meaning Of Life quotes by Temple Grandin
#134. When I was younger, I was looking for this magic meaning of life. #Quote by Temple Grandin

#135. Plato says that the unexamined life is not worth living. But what if the examined life turns out to be a clunker as well? #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Meaning Of Life quotes by Er Gen
#136. What is the meaning of life?"
"Snow will only appear during winter," he said quietly, "and can only exist in the cold wind. Therefore, its life exists only during the depths of winter." He pulled his hand back into the carriage and held it next to the copper oven. The snow began to melt, turning into water, which flowed through the creases of his palm.
"Snow can only live in the winter. When it nears a fire, it dies. That is its life. It may yearn for summer, but… it can only desire it. In my hand, the snow becomes water, because this is not its world…. #Quote by Er Gen

Meaning Of Life quotes by Tom Althouse
#139. We are all children in the dark, finding our way together to the light. Many define the light before the light is reached and fix on their defining. There in the dark they clamor for others to embrace their defining, demanding its elevation, and giving it names they claim as sacred. But all are still in the dark, distracted by so many claims to the one way out, all unseen, and fix their take with fear and penalty if not likewise elevated as the one and only way. Whereas I leave it open to what the opening will reveal. Layered writing is my tool to enable the opening to widen, and it is our consciousness, not our physical form that has trouble squeezing through the passageway to the way out of the dark, while so many call out in the dark they know the way, rather than allowing the way to reveal itself. Watch the silent ones, calm in demeanor, who are experienced at leaving ways open, in order to find it. They listen and feel their way, in different ways and on different levels. These have no following to create the clamor, nor seek the glamour the clamor brings. They are simply wise because they leave it open to what the opening may become, rather than what they have been fed from birth, they birth in solitude what might be, allowing layers of ways to formulate and in that way follow in their minds and hearts a revealed and reveled light yet unseen. #Quote by Tom Althouse
Meaning Of Life quotes by Moutasem Algharati
#140. Time may be defined as " dimension governed by activity." Dimension diminishes with inactivity so does the value of time. #Quote by Moutasem Algharati

#141. Life is half spent before we know what it is. #Quote by George Herbert
Meaning Of Life quotes by Avijeet Das
#142. A writer needs solitude : moments that he can spend in introspection and in reflection. These moments make him pensive and thoughtful and help him write his thoughts with clarity. A life of devotion to one's passion gives us meaning to our life. #Quote by Avijeet Das

Meaning Of Life quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#144. No person can claim to be anything more or anything less than his or her individual assimilation of a lifelong symposium of inimitable physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual occurrences. Simply put, we each place our own individualized stamp upon the meaning of life. How we live, how we struggle, and how we die reflects what life means to each of us. We are all students of life, we are a product of what we pay attention to, what we observe, and experience, and what subjects arrest our minds. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Meaning Of Life quotes by Eric Micha'el Leventhal
#145. The fact of your heart's enfoldment in mine is evidence enough that there is, underneath it all, some hidden order to this world. #Quote by Eric Micha'el Leventhal

#146. And we will keep searching for our footsteps in the sands of time... #Quote by Avijeet Das
Meaning Of Life quotes by Donald Van De Mark
#147. Not only is there often a right and wrong, but what goes around does come around, Karma exists, chickens do come home to roost, and as my mother, Phyllis, liked to say, "There is always a day of reckoning." The good among the great understand that every choice we make adds to the strength or weakness of our spirits - ourselves, or to use an old fashioned word for the same idea, our souls. That is every human's life work: to construct an identity bit by bit, to walk a path step by step, to live a life that is worthy of something higher, lighter, more fulfilling, and maybe even everlasting. #Quote by Donald Van De Mark
Meaning Of Life quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#148. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life. #Quote by Viktor E. Frankl
Meaning Of Life quotes by Mani S. Sivasubramanian
#149. You see, Adrian, we do many things. We assign meaning to some, and think of others as lacking it. But who's to tell when we're right - and when we're wrong? #Quote by Mani S. Sivasubramanian
Meaning Of Life quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#150. Consider a movie: it consists of thousands upon thousands of individual pictures, and each of them makes sense and carries a meaning, yet the meaning of the whole film cannot be seen before its last sequence is shown. However, we cannot understand the whole film without having first understood each of its components, each of the individual pictures. Isn't it the same with life? Doesn't the final meaning of life, too, reveal itself, it at all, only at its end, on the verge of death? #Quote by Viktor E. Frankl
Meaning Of Life quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#151. Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather must recognize that it is he who is asked. In a word, each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible. #Quote by Viktor E. Frankl
Meaning Of Life quotes by John Shelby Spong
#152. Prayer is rather the activity that enables each of us to be givers to and receivers from one another of the deepest meaning of life - a meaning I call God. #Quote by John Shelby Spong
Meaning Of Life quotes by Mark Batterson
#153. It's not about success and failure. It's not about good days and bad days. It's not about wealth or poverty. It's not about health or sickness. It's not even about life or death. It's about glorifying God in whatever circumstance you find yourself in. #Quote by Mark Batterson

Meaning Of Life quotes by G.M. Jackson
#156. Science could potentially do a better job explaining the meaning of life if scientists devise experiments that can weed out the best answers from the worst. The principle difference between religion and science is as follows: the religious make stuff up to explain what they don't understand. Scientists do the same, but scientists run their ideas through a very rigorous filter that consists of logic, experimentation and peer review. Such a filter eliminates the worst ideas and preserves the best.
So if a scientist answers the question, "What is the meaning of life," his answer, at the very worst, is no less valid than an answer that comes from the highest witchdoctor or priest. #Quote by G.M. Jackson
Meaning Of Life quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#157. man is not he who poses the question, What is the meaning of life? but he who is asked this question, for it is life itself that poses it to him. And man has to answer to life by answering for life; he has to respond by being responsible; in other words, the response is necessarily a response-in-action. #Quote by Viktor E. Frankl
Meaning Of Life quotes by Kristen Ashley
#158. The good he got from the people who cared about him set him up to return it, maybe not to them, but to people who deserved it. And that was what it was all about. The meaning of life. Why every person on the planet was there. They got what they gave and then they gave what they got, and it was the measure of you if you could endure the shit that came with life and still find it in you to focus on the good and put that out there. #Quote by Kristen Ashley
Meaning Of Life quotes by Deborah Day
#159. You will have fewer regrets in life if you start focusing and taking responsiblity for where you are and where you want to be. #Quote by Deborah Day
Meaning Of Life quotes by Janet Morris
#160. The meaning of life, Nikodemos, is to live life with meaning. The purpose of life is merely to live it, perhaps to give it. #Quote by Janet Morris
Meaning Of Life quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
#161. As far as we can tell from a purely scientific viewpoint, human life has absolutely no meaning. Humans are the outcome of blind evolutionary processes that operate without goal or purpose. Our actions are not part of some divine cosmic plan, and if planet earth were to blow up tomorrow morning, the universe would probably keep going about its business as usual. As far as we can tell at this point, human subjectivity would not be missed. Hence any meaning that people inscribe to their lives is just a delusion. #Quote by Yuval Noah Harari
Meaning Of Life quotes by Fyodor Dostoevsky
#162. Yes, that's right ... love should come before logic ... Only then will man come to understand the meaning of life. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoevsky

#163. Never ever stop dreaming. You will make it big one day. What is life without our struggles? Our struggles give us insight and depth into life. #Quote by Avijeet Das
Meaning Of Life quotes by Jean-Dominique Bauby
#164. I carefully read each letter myself. Some of them are serious in tone, discussing the meaning of life, invoking the supremacy of the soul, the mystery of every existence. And by a curious reversal, the people who focus most closely on these fundamental questions tend to be people I had known only superficially. Their small talk had masked hidden depths. Had I been blind and deaf, or does it take the harsh light of disaster to show a person's true nature? Other #Quote by Jean-Dominique Bauby
Meaning Of Life quotes by Richard Matheson
#165. There seemed no answer. He wasn't resigned to anything, he hadn't accepted or adjusted to the life he'd been forced into. Yet here he was, eight months after the plague's last victim, nine since he's spoken to another human being, ten since Virginia had died. Here he was with no future and a virtually hopeless present. Still plodding on.
Instinct? Or was he just stupid? Too unimaginative to destroy himself? Why hadn't he done it in the beginning when he was in the very depths? What had impelled him to enclose the house, install a freezer, a generator, an electric stove, a water tank, build a hothouse, a workbench, burn down the houses on each side of his, collect records and books and mountains of canned supplies, even - it was fantastic when you thought about it - even put a fancy mural on the wall?
Was the life force something more than words, a tangible, mind-controlling potency? Was nature somehow, in him, maintaining its spark against its own encroachments?
He closed his eyes. Why think, why reason? There was no answer. His continuance was an accident and an attendant bovinity. He was just too dumb to end it all, and that was about the size of it. #Quote by Richard Matheson
Meaning Of Life quotes by Bongha Lee
#166. Nonconformists, we are, unsolicited, unpredictable, unencumbered, unvested, daring and iconoclastic but not for the sake of destructive ruins but construction toward a better truth, a substantial truth, and innovation. Too much of independence of the nonconformists of unique mind is considered unfitting to the establishment of existing norms and institutions because they cannot be useful functionaries for social reinforcement. Yet, poetic outcasts are reframing the stretch of imagination toward metaphysical beauty and permanence - the greatness. We deliberately detach ourselves from the exasperations and desperations of the moment of mankind. We find it particularly useful to have a burning heart and causes for misgivings and finality…to fill the unlistening void and to chastise a comfortable livelihood. #Quote by Bongha Lee
Meaning Of Life quotes by Old Tom Morris
#167. The meaning of life is creative love. Not love as an inner feeling, as a private sentimental emotion, but love as a dynamic power moving out in the world and doing something original. #Quote by Old Tom Morris

#170. I don't miss the Moon, because I have you. #Quote by Avijeet Das
Meaning Of Life quotes by Milan Kundera
#171. I thought of the fate of Descartes' famous formulation: man as 'master and proprietor of nature.' Having brought off miracles in science and technology, this 'master and proprietor' is suddenly realizing that he owns nothing and is master neither of nature (it is vanishing, little by little, from the planet), nor of History (it has escaped him), nor of himself (he is led by the irrational forces of his soul). But if God is gone and man is no longer master, then who is master? The planet is moving through the void without any master. There it is, the unbearable lightness of being. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Meaning Of Life quotes by Elliot Perlman
#172. What else is life from the time you were born but a struggle to matter, at least to someone? #Quote by Elliot Perlman

Meaning Of Life quotes by Attar Of Nishapur
#174. The hoopoe said: 'Your heart's congealed like ice;
When will you free yourself from cowardice?
Since you have such a short time to live here,
What difference does it make? What should you fear?
The world is filth and sin, and homeless men
Must enter it and homeless leave again.
They die, as worms, in squalid pain; if we
Must perish in this quest, that, certainly,
Is better than a life of filth and grief.
If this great search is vain, if my belief
Is groundless, it is right that I should die.
So many errors throng the world - then why
Should we not risk this quest? To suffer blame
For love is better than a life of shame.
No one has reached this goal, so why appeal
To those whose blindness claims it is unreal?
I'd rather die deceived by dreams than give
My heart to home and trade and never live.
We've been and heard so much - what have we learned?
Not for one moment has the self been spurned;
Fools gather round and hinder our release.
When will their stale, insistent whining cease?
We have no freedom to achieve our goal
Until from Self and fools we free the soul.
To be admitted past the veil you must
Be dead to all the crowd considers just.
Once past the veil you understand the Way
From which the crowd's glib courtiers blindly stray.
If you have any will, leave women's stories,
And even if this search for hidden glories
Proves bla #Quote by Attar Of Nishapur

Meaning Of Life quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
#176. The liberal story instructs me to seek freedom to express and realise myself. But both the 'self' and freedom are mythological chimeras borrowed from the fairy tales of ancient times. Liberalism has a particularly confused notion of 'free will'. Humans obviously have a will, they have desires, and they are sometimes free to fulfil their desires. If by 'free will' you mean the freedom to do what you desire – then yes, humans have free will. But if by 'free will' you mean the freedom to choose what to desire – then no, humans have no free will. #Quote by Yuval Noah Harari
Meaning Of Life quotes by Miriam Toews

Meaning Of Life quotes by Ayi Kwei Armah
#188. Unless, of course, one chose to join the increasing numbers who had decided they were so deep in despair that there was nothing worse to fear in life. These were men who had finally, and so early, so surprisingly early seen enough of something in their own ives and in the lives around them to convince them of the final futility of efforts of efforts to break the mean monthly cycle of debt and borrowing, borrowing and debt. #Quote by Ayi Kwei Armah

Meaning Of Life quotes by Blake Crouch
#190. In the world we came from, our existence was so easy. And so full of discontent because it was so easy. How do you find meaning when you're one of seven billion? When food, clothing, everything you need is just one Walmart away? When we numb our minds to sleep on all manner of screens and HD entertainment, the meaning of life, of our existence and purpose, becomes lost. #Quote by Blake Crouch

Meaning Of Life quotes by Mike Ramsdell
#197. One of the greatest gifts that God gives to each of us is the love we share with our family, friends, and fellowmen. It is this divine gift of love that enriches us, gives meaning and purpose to life, and makes it all worth living. Everything else in life is secondary. Everything. And when our time here on earth is over, our lives will not be measured by the riches we accumulate, the honors we receive, the degrees we acquire, or the professional success we achieve, but by our capacity to love and be loved. #Quote by Mike Ramsdell
Meaning Of Life quotes by Abraham Hicks
#198. The basis of your life is absolute freedom, the goal is joy, and the result of that perfect combination is motion forward, or growth. Your goal is to find objects of attention that let your cork raise. #Quote by Abraham Hicks
Meaning Of Life quotes by Avijeet Das
#199. We will come out of this storm. In the coming days, we have to stay calm and confident. And for sure, we will overcome this moment of despair. How long this will last cannot be ascertained. But the one thing that we can be sure of is that we will not be the same anymore. Hopefully, we would have changed for the better. This is the way of life This is how life teaches us its lessons. #Quote by Avijeet Das
Meaning Of Life quotes by Peggy Noonan
#200. Each of us struggles through primary and essential questions that we cannot avoid once we reach or approach maturity. Why was I born? What is the meaning of life, and its purpose? Where and how can I find happiness? Why is life so full of pain and difficulty? How should we live, by what model or principles or arrangements?
A great mystery embraces our lives, John Paul said. Then he added something that has been to me deeply inspiring:
These questions we ask do not come only from your restless mind, and are not just products of your very human anxiety. They come from God. They are the beginning of the process by which you find them. God prompts them. He made you ask.
The questions are, in fact, a kind of preparation for God, a necessary preamble to the story he wants to write on your heart. And the moment you ask them, your freedom has been set in motion. You become more sharply aware that there are choices.
This, in a way, is the beginning of morality, because there is no morality without freedom. Only in freedom can you turn toward what is good. (p. 127) #Quote by Peggy Noonan
Meaning Of Life quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#201. Your mind will be like its habitual thoughts; for the soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts. #Quote by Marcus Aurelius

Meaning Of Life quotes by Alan Moore

Meaning Of Life quotes by Nii Norton

in suicidal notes she's a coward; too fragile to stand love and disaster;
i am on the verge of taking life and being on what is better left to God #Quote by Nii Norton
Meaning Of Life quotes by Paula McLain
#207. There are many days when I want to throw my computer out the window, when I tell myself I'd be better off selling shoes at the mall. But I always keep at it, because I have to. Writing is completely part of who I am. Even if I never published another book, I would keep at it - because it feeds my life and makes it richer. #Quote by Paula McLain

Meaning Of Life quotes by Katherine M. Aldridge
#211. ...when the bullets fly and sundry erratic fragments of shell are seeking
a fellowʼs life, and he has to lay low in the pits to keep his light from being snuffed
out, then is a good opportunity to reckon up and balance accounts with the world
in general and a fellowʼs near relatives and family in particular. Many, many,
many a time have I thought of the careless word or deed never recalled, or
amended, and during those midnight hours would I have given almost life itself to
have the opportunity of making amends for them. Not through fear of what is
beyond this life, but in order that after my flesh had turned to dust, and my bones
to traces of white lime, those that knew me in life could say, "Charlie is gone, and
though his life was full of inconsistencies, still he was a good hearted fellow, and
if he did not amount to much as man, still he done no one any harm." Charlie Biddlecom January 22, 1865 #Quote by Katherine M. Aldridge
Meaning Of Life quotes by Lawrence Weschler
#212. Genetically, I have tons of musical background in my life. My mother's father was a famous Weimar-era composer, Ernst Toch. My father's mother was the head of the Vienna Conservatory's piano department. It all canceled out in my case. I'm completely hopeless in music. #Quote by Lawrence Weschler

#213. No tie is as strong as family, making it the hardest one to break. #Quote by David Crow
Meaning Of Life quotes by Thomas Szasz
#214. Autonomy ... is freedom to develop one's self - to increase one's knowledge, improve one's skills, and achieve responsibility for one's conduct. And it is freedom to lead one's own life, to choose among alternative courses of action so long as no injury to others results. #Quote by Thomas Szasz

Meaning Of Life quotes by Kristen Stewart
#216. I really, specifically, love acting, and I think it's a really cool thing to be really indulgent and follow that. I have a lot of ambitions in life, but for the next few years, I just want to be an actor. That's a lucky opportunity, and that drives me to want to be good at that. #Quote by Kristen Stewart
Meaning Of Life quotes by Zack Love
#217. At one point, I began to think that I had a divine doorman. Lenny was the most unlikely incarnation of God I could imagine, and yet, I kept drifting irresistibly towards this absurd conclusion. Despite my staunchly atheistic inclinations, I couldn't explain Lenny any other way. But eventually I came to my senses and realized that he was just one of those game show freaks with an encyclopedic memory. That didn't make him God, did it? Would God proclaim so regularly how much he likes Patsy's Pizza? #Quote by Zack Love
Meaning Of Life quotes by Thomas Aquinas
#218. Being taken simply, as including all perfection of being, surpasses life and all that follows it; for thus being itself includes all these. And in this sense Dionysius speaks. But if we consider being itself as participated in this or that thing, which does not possess the whole perfection of being, but has imperfect being, such as the being of any creature; then it is evident that being itself together with an additional perfection is more excellent. Hence in the same passage Dionysius says that things that live are better than things that exist, and intelligent better than living things. Reply Obj. 3: Since the end corresponds to the beginning; this argument proves that the last end is the first beginning of being, in Whom every perfection of being is: Whose likeness, according to their proportion, some desire as to being only, some as to living being, some as to being which is living, intelligent and happy. And this belongs to few. #Quote by Thomas Aquinas

Meaning Of Life quotes by Gene Stratton-Porter
#220. To my way of thinking and working, the greatest service a piece of fiction can do any reader is to leave him with a higher ideal of life than he had when he began. If in one small degree it shows him where he can be ... gentler, saner, cleaner, kindlier ... it is a wonder-working book. If it opens his eyes to one beauty in nature he never saw for himself and leads him one step toward the God of the Universe, it is a beneficial book ... #Quote by Gene Stratton-Porter

Meaning Of Life quotes by Alice Munro
#223. Doing this was like
wading and then throwing yourself into the lake for the first icy swim, in June. A sickening shock at first, then amazement that
you were still moving, lifted up on a stream of steely devotion
calm above the surface of your life, surviving, though the pain of
the cold continued to wash into your body. #Quote by Alice Munro

#228. This is very nice, cozy. You got a nice cozy place, Lublin."
"Cramped," Rosa said.

"Life is short, we all got to lie. #Quote by Cynthia Ozick
Meaning Of Life quotes by Vladimir Sergeyevich Solovyov
#229. Truth as a living power that takes possession of the internal being of a human and actually rescues him from false self-assertion is termed Love. Love as the actual abrogation of egoism is the real justification and salvation of individuality. Love is greater than rational consciousness, yet without the latter it could not act as an internal saving power, elevating and not abrogating individuality. Only thanks to a rational consciousness (or, what is the same thing, a consciousness of the truth) can a human being discriminate his very self, i.e., his true individuality, from his egoism, and therefore sacrifice this egoism, and surrender himself to love. In doing so he finds not merely a living, but also a life-giving power, and does not forfeit his individual being together with his egoism, but on the contrary makes it eternal. #Quote by Vladimir Sergeyevich Solovyov
Meaning Of Life quotes by Jocelyn Moorhouse
#230. When I was a teenager, I used to love the Bronte books, 'Wuthering Heights' and 'Jane Eyre.' In those books, the women do usually manage to heal the men, but in life, I've found it's often the woman gets wounded. Instead of healing a man, she gets affected by his cruelty. #Quote by Jocelyn Moorhouse
Meaning Of Life quotes by Idries Shah
#231. They asked Abboud of Omdurman: 'Which is better, to be young or to be old?' He said: 'To be old is to have less time before you and more mistakes behind. I leave you to decide whether this is better than the reverse. #Quote by Idries Shah
Meaning Of Life quotes by Katie Ashley
#232. When you fell into my life, I was shattered beyond repair. But as the shining angel of redemption, you didn't seem to care. While the tempest swirled around me, you led me to solid ground. You're the purest, deepest love a man like me has ever found. There is a fire that burns within me that only you can ignite. You're the light that fills my soul in the darkest, bleakest night. You're the balm that cures the wound; the lifeline in the storm. You are the song of my heart, the music of my soul. #Quote by Katie Ashley
Meaning Of Life quotes by Shiv Khera
#233. You look at the life histories of most successful people or organisations, who have 1) Succeeded, 2) sustained success and 3) maintained goodwill, they have all lived by this one principle: I shall always give more than I get, to my family, organisation and my society. #Quote by Shiv Khera
Meaning Of Life quotes by Steve Wozniak
#234. What Steve Jobs and I did-and at the same time Bill Gates and Paul Allen did-we had no savings accounts, no friends that could loan us money. But we had ideas, and I wanted all my life to be a part of a revolution. #Quote by Steve Wozniak

Meaning Of Life quotes by Noel Marie Fletcher
#238. I've often thought about how all these different life forms occupy the same space as me during a given moment and how easy it can be to get so wrapped up in your own world you forget you're part of something larger and marvelous. #Quote by Noel Marie Fletcher
Meaning Of Life quotes by Thomas Paine
#239. Socrates poisoned, Aristides ostracized, Aristotle fleeing for his life, Jesus crucified, Paul beheaded, Peter crucified head downward, Savonarola martyred, Spinoza hunted, tracked and cursed, and an order issued that no man should speak to him not supply him food or shelter, Bruno burned, Galileo imprisoned, Huss, Wyclif, Latimer and Tyndale used for kindling - all this in the name of religion, institutional religion, the one thing that has caused more misery, heartaches, bloodshed, war, than all other causes combined. #Quote by Thomas Paine
Meaning Of Life quotes by Alice James
#240. What one reads, or rather all that comes to us, is surely only of interest and value in proportion as we find ourselves therein,
form given to what was vague, what slumbered stirred to life. #Quote by Alice James
