Around 9:00 PM last Saturday night on my way into work, I stopped by a familiar chain coffee house for double shot of my favorite alkaloid delivered with steamed milk and hazelnut flavoring to help keep me awake and focused on the evening’s task. Printed on the side of the cup was a quote that began-
Many people search blindly for the “meaning of life.” What they don’t seem to understand is that life does not have meaning…
After some Internet searching I found where this quote is frequently discussed in blogdom so I thought I would contribute to the conversation and see if others are interested. (you can search for the remainder of the quote and who said it if you are curious – or you can go search thru the coffee house trash bins until you find the right one) Based on who uttered the statement I think taking it out of context is OK simply because in general I don’t (or haven’t yet) agreed with all that person has to say, except of course that life has no meaning.
Wait a moment…maybe talking about the lack of meaning somehow gives life some meaning! (but of course you have to have a life for any meaning to be possible)
