On the purpose of life

Now... that's a fancy title, right?

Well, don't get too excited yet...

Not to spoil the fun but I have absolutely no freaking clue what the purpose of it all is...

However, it seems that a lot of smart (like, really smart) people have tried to answer that question many, many (MANY!!) times over the years.

I have personally thought and struggled around that interrogation quite a lot.

Reading, of course, as been a great source of inspiration and knowledge.

It has helped me to better understand what direction I wanted to take in my life.

Finding or creating a purpose is an ongoing process. It doesn't just happen. We need to work on it. Try and fail many times over.

Below you'll find the best 8 quotes I came across during the past 2 years.
