First a couple by Jean Paul Sartre


It disturbs me no more to find men base, unjust, or selfish than to see apes mischievous, wolves savage, or the vulture ravenous.



Every existing thing is born without reason, prolongs itself out of weakness, and dies by chance.


One by Nietzsche


To live is to suffer, to survive is to find some meaning in the suffering.


And one finally from Ernest Becker


“Civilized" society is a hopeful belief and protest that science, money and goods make man count for more than any other animal. In this sense everything that man does is religious and heroic, and yet in danger of being fictitious and fallible

Life is to live.

Death meaning life,
life meaning death.
Both have a meaning,
that never ends.

Hope and faith can loose you,
while your goal,
you can allways reach for.

The obscure we see eventually. The completely obvious, it seems, takes longer.
