Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Margaret Guenther
#1. It was a happy day when I discovered that in the English of Chaucer's day - which was also the time of the Black Death - the word "silly" meant "blessed." I am not sure when we strayed away from its original meaning, when blessedness took on a churchy aura and silliness became the realm of Monty Python and fourth-grade eschatological humor. As hard-working adults we too often lose the gift for letting go, for delight in simply being. We persuade ourselves that every moment must be lived productively; like the busy little bee, we feel a holy obligation to improve each shining hour. We would do well to take very small children or big silly dogs as our teachers. I have learned much about holy uselessness form Perry, the dog... #Quote by Margaret Guenther
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Tom King
#2. So rather than spending my golden years searching for the meaning of my life, I rather believe I'll just keep on trying to make some meaning out of my life right up until I pitch over nose first into the dirt for that little nap. - Tom King (I Ain't Afraid of No Grim Reaper) #Quote by Tom King
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Charles M. Schulz
#3. I don't know the meaning of life. I don't know why we are here. I think life is full of anxieties and fears and tears. It has a lot of grief in it, and it can be very grim. And I do not want to be the one who tries to tell somebody else what life is all about. To me it's a complete mystery. #Quote by Charles M. Schulz
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Stephen Jay Gould
#4. Life is a copiously branching bush, continually pruned by the grim reaper of extinction, not a ladder of predictable progress. #Quote by Stephen Jay Gould
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Soroosh Shahrivar
#5. Fear of death. Buried deep
Living inside of me

Reaper never knocks more than once
That thump is scaring me

Pulmonary veins
They're suddenly filled with ecstasy
Sing and dance in praise
I hope it's God that's sent for me #Quote by Soroosh Shahrivar
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Cornell Woolrich
#6. The cemetery watchman left the room and returned with a tray holding three small skulls and a large one. I could feel the short hairs on the back of my neck standing up of their own accord. None of them were real though; they were wood or celluloid imitations. They all had flaps that opened at the top; one was a jug and the other three steins.

The man behind the desk named the toast. 'To our Friend!' I thought he meant myself at first; he meant that shadowy enemy of all mankind, the Grim Reaper.

'We are called The Friends of Death,' he explained to me when the grisly containers had been emptied. 'To outline our creed and purpose briefly, it is this: That death is life, and life is death. We have mastered death, and no member of the Friends of Death need ever fear it. They 'die,' it is true, but after death they are buried in special graves in our private cemetery - graves having air vents, such as you discovered. Also, our graves are equipped with electric signals, so that after the bodies of our buried members begin to respond to the secret treatment our scientists have given them before internment, we are warned. Then we come and release them - and they live again. Moreover, they are released, freed of their thralldom; from then on death is an old familiar friend instead of an enemy. They no longer fear it. Do you not see what a wonderful boon this would be in your case, Brother Bud; you who have suffered so from that fear?' ("Graves For The Living") #Quote by Cornell Woolrich
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Hermann Hesse
#7. Fate was not kind, life was capricious and terrible, and there was no good or reason in nature. But there is good and reason in us, in human beings, with whom fortune plays, and we can be stronger than nature and fate, if only for a few hours. And we can draw close to one another in times of need, and live to comfort each other.

And sometimes when the black depths are silent, we can do even more. We can then be gods for moments, stretch out a commanding hand and create things which were not there before and which, when they are created, continue to live without us. Out of sounds, words and other frail and worthless things, we can construct playthings--songs and poems full of meaning, consolation and goodness, more beautiful and enduring than the grim sport of fortune and destiny. #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Ernest Cline
#8. Everybody uses pop culture as a shorthand. You might make an obscure reference to Monty Python or Iron Eagle that only some people will get, but if they do it conveys a world of meaning. #Quote by Ernest Cline
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Jack Kerouac Atop An Underwood Early Stories And Other Writings
#9. The Grim Reaper isn't grim at all; he's a life-saver. He isn't grim because he isn't anything ... he is nothing. And nothing is a hell of a lot better than anything. So long, boys. #Quote by Jack Kerouac Atop An Underwood Early Stories And Other Writings
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Kedar Joshi
#10. The meaning of life is 'the ultimate questioner's vanity.' #Quote by Kedar Joshi
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Laura Weakley
#11. Torah is not just a book, not just a bunch of laws, and not just a history, but so much more. The Torah is a way ofd life to learn and live, and when studied, a spiritual way to understand life as well as providing instructions on getting closer to Adonai (God). When we treat others kindly, fairly, and lovingly, both in our home, social, and business lives, we are living Torah. The "truth" is the Torah is many things simultaneously. #Quote by Laura Weakley
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Billy Graham
#12. This "I" was made in the image of God for fellowship with God. Without God it is miserable, empty, confused, and frustrated. Without God life has no meaning; but with God at its center there is life, an inner strength and peace, a deep satisfaction, an unfading joy known only to those who know Jesus Christ. #Quote by Billy Graham
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Joshua Wolf Shenk
#13. Lincoln's story confounds those who see depression as a collection of symptoms to be eliminated. But it resonates with those who see suffering as a potential catalyst of emotional growth. "What man actually needs," the psychiatrist Victor Frankl argued,"is not a tension-less state but rather the striving and struggling of a worthwhile goal." Many believe that psychological health comes with the relief of distress. But Frankl proposed that all people-- and particularly those under some emotional weight-- need a purpose that will both draw on their talents and transcend their lives. For Lincoln, this sense of purpose was indeed the key that unlocked the gates of a mental prison. This doesn't mean his suffering went away. In fact, as his life became richer and more satisfying, his melancholy exerted a stronger pull. He now responded to that pull by tying it to his newly defined sense of purpose. From a place of trouble, he looked for meaning. He looked at imperfection and sought redemption. #Quote by Joshua Wolf Shenk
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Bongha Lee
#14. 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
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Roshan Sharma
#15. The most important aspect of life is not the creation, but the creator in you and the process of creation. Once you realize the flow of cosmic energy inside, along with its source, you understand the creator of the universe, and its cosmic order. #Quote by Roshan Sharma
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Stephen Batchelor
#16. The meaning of man's life, as we have seen, is not measured by what he has, but by what he is. No matter how many possessions we have amassed, how much wealth we have accrued, how respected and secure our position is in society, how numerous the pieces of information we have accumulated, in moments of lucidity we may still abruptly perceive the dreadful futility of it all, the overwhelming emptiness and pointlessness of such a life. #Quote by Stephen Batchelor
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by David Gemmell
#17. All things that live must die. Man alone it seems lives all his life in the knowledge of death. And yet there is more to life than merely waiting for death. For life to have meaning, there must be a purpose. A man must pass something on – otherwise he is useless. For most men, that purpose revolves around marriage and children who will carry on his seed. For others it is an ideal – a dream, if you like. Each of us here believes in a concept of honor: that it is a man's duty to do that which is right and just; that might alone is not enough. We have all transgressed at some time. We have stolen, lied, cheated – even killed – for our own ends. But ultimately we return to our beliefs. We judge ourselves more harshly than others can judge us. We know that death is preferable to betrayal of that which we hold dear. #Quote by David Gemmell
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Jordan B. Peterson
#18. Say what you mean, so that you can find out what you mean. Act out what you say, so you can find out what happens. Then pay attention. Note your errors. Articulate them. Strive to correct them. That is how you discover the meaning of your life. That will protect you from the tragedy of your life. How could it be otherwise? #Quote by Jordan B. Peterson
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Bentley Little
#19. Real life ... it was an ambiguous world, where actions sometimes had no meaning, where chaos reigned and no one was allowed to see the big picture, only their small portion of it. #Quote by Bentley Little
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Debasish Mridha
#20. What you are looking for is not out there. It is inside of you. You just have to reveal it. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Joseph Campbell
#21. 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
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Ernst F. Schumacher
#22. To say that life is nothing but a property of certain peculiar combinations of atoms is like saying that Shakespeare's Hamlet is nothing but a property of a peculiar combination of letters. #Quote by Ernst F. Schumacher
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Lao-Tzu
#23. Darkness within darkness. The gateway to all understanding #Quote by Lao-Tzu
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Barbara Marciniak
#24. Part of this experience involves your being able to say to a person who is dying, You are loved. You are beautiful. You are like a newborn babe, going into another realm. Release now anyone, and everything, that is a burden to you. Release everything and know that you have lived your life to the fullest. There is no judgment on you. Go in peace, put a smile on your face, and release any judgments you hold. Relax, and allow your life to have meaning as you embark on the next phase of your identity. #Quote by Barbara Marciniak
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Sam Taylor
#25. I look back at the thousands of days through which I have lived, and feel awed by their inconsequentiality. My life resembles the writing in my diary (or perhaps it's the other way around): the days, like the sentences, each making a kind of superficial sense of their own, but in the context of the surrounding sentences and days, creating not a narrative or a meaning, but the very opposite: a riddle without solutions, a labyrinth without exits. A chaos. #Quote by Sam Taylor
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Dan Barker
#26. The preachers have got it completely backward. If life is eternal, then life is cheap. Value does not come from surplus; it comes from rarity. Prices rise as supply drops. The reality that our lives are brief is what makes them precious. The fact that they will end makes them more meaningful. "Ultimate purpose" is no purpose at all: it is the surrender of purpose. It is the pretense that faith equals meaning. #Quote by Dan Barker
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Caitlin Doughty
#27. Death might appear to destroy the meaning in our lives, but in fact it is the very source of our creativity. As Kafka said, "The meaning of life is that it ends." Death is the engine that keeps us running, giving us the motivation to achieve, learn, love, and create. #Quote by Caitlin Doughty
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Charles C. Ryrie
#28. It is more important to be than to do, for if I am what God wants me to be, then I will do what He wants me to do. If I try to promote a program, however well-meaning, without personal holiness, it will be tainted by the defects of my life. It may lack the direction of full knowledge of the Word, or the discernment of maturity, or the direction that comes through unclouded fellowship with the Lord. Primarily we do not need to develop programs, but people. #Quote by Charles C. Ryrie
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Michel Houellebecq
#29. You too, you took an interest in the world. That was long ago. I want you to cast your mind back to then. The domain of the rules was no longer enough for you; you were unable to love any longer in the domain of the rules; so you had to enter into the domain of the struggle. I ask you to go back to that precise moment. It was long ago, no? Cast your mind back: the water was cold.
You are far from the edge, now. Oh yes! How far from the edge you are! You long believed in the existence of another shore; such is no longer the case. You go on swimming, though, and every movement you make brings you closer to drowning. You are suffocating, your lungs are on fire. The water seems colder and colder to you, more and more galling. You aren't that young anymore. Now you are going to die. Don't worry. I am here. I won't let you sink. Go on with your reading. #Quote by Michel Houellebecq
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Richard Bode
#30. If every man and woman were to take the meaning of their life and pursue it passionately, they would alter the social landscape overnight. In fact, that's how lasting revolutions are made- not by the raised arm of the masses, not by the military seizure of power, not by the political coup d'etat, but by individuals asserting who they are one at a time. #Quote by Richard Bode
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#31. View life as a series of movie frames, the ending and meaning may not be apparent until the very end of the movie, and yet, each of the hundreds of individual frames has meaning within the context of the whole movie. #Quote by Viktor E. Frankl
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Claire North
#32. I am frightened now. I am frightened that when he fades from my memory, a piece of me will die too. The feelings, the things I have learned, the ideas I have had today, so many ideas, so many feelings, they will die with my memory. I fear that loss. But more, a terror that I must share with my future self. I fear what this means for me. If you forget the joy of this day, then what joy you give to others will also be forgotten, and your life has no consequence, no meaning, no worth. I am a shadow, blasted away by the sun, a meaningless occlusion of light that fades with the day. #Quote by Claire North
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Igor Sikorsky
#33. 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
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Bram Stoker
#34. The tomb in the daytime, and when wreathed with fresh flowers, had looked grim and gruesome enough; but now some days afterwards, when the flowers hung lank and dead, their whites turning to rust and their greens to browns; when the spider and the beetle had resumed their accustomed dominance; when time-discoloured stone, and dust-encrusted mortar, and rusty, dank iron, and tarnished brass and clouded silver-plating gave back the feeble glimmer of a candle, the effect was more miserable and sordid than could have been imagined. It conveyed irresistibly the idea that life - animal life - was not the only thing that could pass away. #Quote by Bram Stoker
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by S.L.J. Shortt
#35. So, what's the story?"
"No story. Just a nightmare."
"Meaning, heavy compression lines in his cartilage, severe bruising on his kidneys, liver and lower intestines. Fracture marks on his collar bone, tibia, radius, humerus, scapular, femur and every single one of his ribs have been broken. Don't even get me started on the concussive damage to his skull and brain tissue. Twenty-three percent of this boys body is scared for life. And yet, every organ is functioning normally and his neurological activity is above average. He's eighteen years old and he weights about two bills but remove the scar tissue and he'd weigh about a buck-ten. All in all, I say he lived inside a hydraulic car press, went through the Napoleonic wars and was on board the Hindenburg when it went down in flame and yet he's okay ... this boy just refuses to die. #Quote by S.L.J. Shortt
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Jane Austen
#36. Louisa seemed the principal arranger of the plan; and, as she went a little way with them, down the hill, still talking to Henrietta, Mary took the opportunity of looking scornfully around her, and saying to Captain Wentworth,
'It is very unpleasant, having such connexions! But I assure you, I have never been in the house above twice in my life.'
She received no answer, other than an artificial, assenting smile, followed by a contemptuous glance, as he turned away, which Anne perfectly knew the meaning of. #Quote by Jane Austen
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Alan McCluskey
#37. Instead of writing backwards over what had happened, giving structure and meaning to his story, he wrote forwards, slipping into troubling futures. #Quote by Alan McCluskey
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Paulo Coelho
#38. They are so very cultivated, so very rich and so utterly charming. At the end of each day, they all ask themselves: 'Is it time I stopped?' And they all reply: 'If I did, there would be no meaning to my life.'
As if they actually knew what the meaning of life was. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Jasleen Kaur Gumber
#39. Sometimes, some of times in life are Lifetime! #Quote by Jasleen Kaur Gumber
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Abigail George
#40. I've become obsessed with my weight. How I look in clothes (do they fit well or not at all). I'm unhappy on so many levels. How do I look today, or in the photograph, am I smiling nicely with my teeth or unsmiling with no show of teeth. Am I well (meaning happy, content with my lot in life) or am I not well (in need of rest, renewal and rejuvenation). Have I made a new friend today or have I lost someone towards the journey to truth and light. #Quote by Abigail George
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Lindsay Buroker
#41. He doesn't take anything seriously, and he has the work ethic of a ... a ... well, an indolent son of the privileged caste. I've worked my entire life, and I ... " "Take everything seriously?" Amaranthe suggested. Evrial crossed her arms. "Maybe. So, what? Life isn't a joke." "No, but it's easier to enjoy if you can find the humor in even the grim moments. Perhaps it'd be healthy for you to let someone bring a little levity into your life. #Quote by Lindsay Buroker
Monty Python Meaning Of Life Grim Reaper quotes by Richard Dawkins
#42. Imagine a world in which people told lies as a matter of principle, where lying was regarded as a good and moral thing to do. In such a world, lying itself would cease to have any meaning. Lying needs a presumption of truth for its very definition. If a moral principle is something we should wish everybody to follow, lying cannot be a moral principle because the principle itself would break down in meaninglessness. Lying, as a rule for life, is inherently unstable. More generally, selfishness, or free-riding parasitism on the goodwill of others, may work for me as a lone selfish individual and give me personal satisfaction. But I cannot wish that everybody would adopt selfish parasitism as a moral principle, if only because then I would have nobody to parasitize. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
