Man is simply a being in search of meaning.
Deeply ensconced in the marrow of our bones is the aspiration for significance.
– R. C. Sproul
We’re a species that needs and wants to understand who we are and what life means. Sheep lice don’t share this, which is why they write so little.
– Anne Lamott
Clinics are crowded with people suffering from a new kind of neurosis, a sense of total and ultimate meaninglessness of life.
– Viktor Frankl
Unless you assume a God, the question of life’s purpose is meaningless.
– Bertrand Russell
No finite point has meaning without an infinite point of reference.
– Jean-Paul Satre
If the whole universe has no meaning, we should never have found out that it has no meaning: just as, if there were no light in the universe and therefore no creatures with eyes, we should never know it was dark. Dark would be without meaning.
– C. S. Lewis
Even when we believe with all our minds that life is meaningless, we simply can’t live that way. We know better. We know God is there.
– Tim Keller
