Life: Meaning, Definition, Purpose, Art


“Life swarms with innocent monsters–and also calculated ones.”

Jean Anouilh, French playwright:

“Life is very nice, but it lacks form. It’s the aim of art to give it some.”


“The only absolute knowledge attainable  by man  is that life is meaningless.”


“From a certain point onward, there is no turning back; that is the point that must be reached.”

Margaret K, Rawlings, The Yearling:

“Life knocks a man down and he gets up, and it knocks him down again.”

Hjalmar Soderberg:

“The only absolutes in life  are the desire of the flesh and the incurable loneliness of the soul.”
