    All Have Their Own Answer

    It is religious for some, philosophical for others, and to others unanswerable. It is all their own answers according to themselves. There cannot be one simple answer for all; I have questioned it my entire life and although there is a better understanding, it is still a mystery...

    What is life? Are there two kinds of people.

    Those who's choices are based more on logical sense and the ones who use little logic but more emotion on choices.

    I've always wondered

    and thought it was a pointless effort, and one time I was high and I swear for a minute I knew the meaning of life, then POOF. Frustrating, but fitting. I dont think you can ever really know...

    typical question, but really.

    I'm atheist and not suicidal or anything but I'm desperately confused about everything. I've done research and found out that heavan was just an idea and am not too fond of believing ghosts or spirits and what ever. sure I'm probably going to end up living the most normal life...

    I've come to think there is no clear meaning,

    I wonder what it all means.

    Fortunately I feel I have gotten closer to the answer in the last 7 months, but whether I will find the answer before my test time is up I do not know.

    I've always wondered

    Important

    Some of the most important questions in life are: Where did we come from? Where do you go when we die? What do we do inbetween? There have been many attempts to answer these questions, all have failed thus far. Every theory I have heard has its problems.

    I think there's no recipe

    for happiness in our lives. I hear people say all the time they supposedly have everything in life- a loving family, friends, a girlfriend or boyfriend, wealth, education, self confidence and charisma and the list goes on. Therefore, they say, they should be happy. And if they...

    I don't know who the quote is by but this quote changed the way I think: If you spend your life searching for the meaning of life, you give yourself no time to live it.
