~ The Meaning of Life ~

There is no use in one person attempting to tell another what the meaning of life is. It involves too intimate an awareness. A major part of the meaning of life is contained in the very discovering of it. It is an ongoing contact with reality.

To speak as though it were an objective knowledge, like the date of the war of 1812, misses the point altogether. The meaning of life is indeed objectivive when it is reached, but the way to it is by a path of subjectivities.

The meaning of life cannot be told; it has to happen to a person.
