We are free to interpret and reinterpret the meaning of our lives. You can consider your first marriage, which ended in divorce, to be a "failure," or you can view it as a circumstance that caused you to grow in ways that were crucial to your future happiness.

Sam Harris

We hunger for significance for signs that our personal existence is of special meaning to the universe. To that end, we are all to eager to deceive ourselves and others to discern a sacred image in a grilled cheese sandwich or find a divine warning in a comet.

Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey (movie)

Darwin`s idea of evolution by natural selection is, in my opinion, the single best idea that anybody has ever had, because in a single bold stroke it unites meaning with matter, two aspects of reality that appear to be worlds apart. On one side, we have the world of our minds and their meanings, our goals, our hopes, and our yearnings, and that most honored - and hackneyed - of all philosophical topics, the Meaning of Life. On the other side, we have galaxies ceaselessly wheeling, planets falling pointlessly into their orbits, lifeless chemical mechanisms doing what physics ordains, all without purpose or reason. Then Darwin comes along and shows us how the former arises from the latter, creating meaning as it goes, a bubble-up vision of the birth of importance to overthrow the trickle-down vision of tradition.

Daniel Dennett

Whatever relationships you have attracted in your life at this moment, are precisely the ones you need in your life at this moment. There is a hidden meaning behind all events, and this hidden meaning is serving your own evolution.

Deepak Chopra

The meaning of Christmas is the idea that Christmas has meaning. And it can mean whatever we want.

Community (movie)

Aren`t we forgetting the true meaning of Christmas? You know... the birth of Santa.

The Simpsons (movie)

Christmas is a day of meaning and traditions, a special day spent in the warm circle of family and friends.

Margaret Thatcher

If I were to give an award for the single best idea anyone has ever had, I'd give it to Darwin, ahead of Newton and Einstein and everyone else. In a single stroke, the idea of evolution by natural selection unifies the realm of life, meaning, and purpose with the realm of space and time, cause and effect, mechanism and physical law.

Daniel Dennett

Fearing death meant also fearing life, which stole all meaning from the act of living.

Dean Koontz

To live is to experience things, not sit around pondering the meaning of life.

Paulo Coelho

Love goes very far beyond the physical person of the beloved. It finds its deepest meaning in his spiritual being, his inner self. Whether or not he is actually present, whether or not he is still alive at all, ceases somehow to be of importance.

Viktor E. Frankl

The reason dying is so easy is because death has no meaning. [...] And the reason death has no meaning is because life has no meaning.

Janne Teller

The meaning of life is not simply to exist, to survive, but to move ahead, to go up, to achieve, to conquer.

Arnold Schwarzenegger

My meaning simply is, that whatever I have tried to do in life, I have tried with all my heart to do well; that whatever I have devoted myself to, I have devoted myself to completely; that in great aims and in small, I have always been thoroughly in earnest.

Charles Dickens

Forever has no meaning when you`re living in the moment. I wasn`t ready for that moment to end.
