Life isn't about the big win. Life is in all the small moments. - movie, read the movie review at bit.ly/PearlyGates42

Is the meaning of life found in its moments, or the larger picture?

The main benefit from an encounter with superior beings would be the opportunity to ask them the fundamental question that had been bothering us for ages: “What’s the meaning of life?” I hope to live long enough and be around for their answer, stemming from numerous millennia of acquired scientific knowledge. But at the same time, I worry that the response will be dead silence because they have not figured out the answer yet. -

At some point, you recognize the reason we are all here is to help someone else. That is the sole reason we are here. Once you get that in your head, life gets so much simpler. It gets so much simpler.       -

I think that language may betray us a bit on this great question and that there is no meaning of life. Rather, the meaning is life.

If we no longer have to work, where else in life can we find meaning?

If we go 80 years into the future and look back, it’s actually a blessing that our routine jobs are being taken care of by machines, so we can do what we’re good at, what we love. We can think about the meaning of life and so on.  

Your purpose in life is to find your purpose and give your whole heart and soul to it. - Unknown

Do we become the servants as we age and do we lose meaning as we age?

When I look back at that freedom of childhood, which is in a way infinite, and at all the joy and the intense happiness, now lost, I sometimes think that childhood is where the real meaning of life is located, and that we, adults, are its servants - that that's our purpose. -

I have been thinking a lot about what something is and what something means. And I don't know what any of this is… but I do think if there's a meaning to any of it, it has something to do with not pressing the reset button, even if things get really rough. - The Discovery, Netflix Original

Roy McBride: He captured strange and distant worlds in greater detail than ever before. They were beautiful, magnificent, full of awe and wonder. But beneath their sublime surfaces, there was nothing. No love or hate. No light or dark. He could only see what was not there, and missed what was right in front of him. - Ad Astra Movie

To protect life, we need to love it. Today, the serious threat in more developed countries is to lose the meaning of living. -
