The meaning of life


“The meaning of life is just to be alive.
It is so plain and so obvious and so simple. And yet, everybody rushes around in a great panic as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves.”

― Alan W. Watts, The Culture of Counter-Culture: Edited Transcripts

-Ah! dit le renard…je pleurerai.
-C’est ta faute, dit le petit prince, je ne te souhaitais point de mal, mais tu as voulu que je t’apprivoise…
-Bien sûr, dit le renard.
-Mais tu vas pleurer! dit le petit prince.
-Bien sûr, dit le renard.
-Alors tu n’y gagnes rien!
-J’y gagne, dit le renard, à cause de la couleur du blé.
