People are meaning-givers. Our work, our actions, our leisure-time, our religion, our culture and traditions, our worries and our victories — they all have meaning to us.

The meaning of life has the significance we give it, but when it comes to purpose, things look quite differently because life’s purpose is living.

And that what is final purpose itself cannot be superseded by an even higher purpose. The thought of such is — meaningless.

There is no aim for life, there are no objectives, and life doesn’t serve anything beyond. It needs nothing, because it’s its own fulfillment.

To give meaning is life’s intrinsic quality. It’s the way life expresses, radiates itself — it gives all that lives reasons to live.

Nonetheless, life’s fundamental nature, its essence, is both meaningless and purposeless: to give meaning has no purpose, and purpose — has no meaning at all.
