Posts Tagged ‘The Meaning Of Life’

It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us.  We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life — daily and hourly.  Our answer must consist, not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct.  Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual.

You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of.  You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.
    —    Albert Camus
[When I was in my late 30’s, I lived and worked in Liverpool, England.  One day, I was standing at a urinal (doing what you do there) and an elderly (formerly retired) executive stepped to the urinal next to me.  As he was relieving himself, he let loose with a passage which I would politely describe as “a rolling ball of thunder”.
He half-notched his head towards me and said:  “Young man, when you get older you’ll find out that happiness is a dry fart.”
I’m still not sure about the meaning of life, but I can add that these days, my wife (who does our laundry) and I agree with him.    —    KMAB]
