What is the purpose of life?
Is it not to learn...
About the universe, other people and, ultimately, about oneself?
You reply, "Ok, but then what?"
But can you not see that there is no 'then what'?
The destination is the journey itself.
Why? Because the truth is, you can never know about all those things,
And so your journey merely continues;
Learning all the time as you go.
And so the purpose of life is this;
Right here, right now.
Simply learn to savour and appreciate
The specialness and uniqueness
Of each and every little moment in life,
For it will all too soon be gone,
Never to be experienced again.

What is the purpose of life?
Is it not to earn...
get a paper-round, deliver pizzas, and a full-time day job.
You reply, "Ok, but then what?"
But can you not see that there is no 'then what'?
The destination is the journey itself.
Why? Because the truth is, you can never have too much money
And so your journey merely continues;
earning all the time as you go.
And so the purpose of life is this;
Right here, right now.
Simply earn and savour and appreciate your money
The specialness and uniqueness
Of each and every little moment in life, earning money.
For it will all too soon be gone,
Never to be experienced again

If you listen to your fears, you will die never knowing what a great friend you might have been/might have made
If you listen to your fears, you will die never knowing what a great relationship you might have had
If you listen to your fears, you will die never knowing what a great person you might have been"

^Ah good one. I've had that thing of trying to get back to the person I used to be while knowing I can't get back there and it's weird and a waste of time. And I wasn't even myself fully while I was that person, so that's ... what it is.

On a similar note: 'Happiness is the lucky pane of glass you carry in your head. It takes all your cunning just to hang onto it, and once it's smashed you have to move into a different sort of life.'

-Carol Shields, Unless

I might be ugly but I have a great personality, just kidding, I have an awful personality too. I might be ugly and have an awful personality but I can cook. Just kidding, I burnt a coffee once. Feck you.
