(Because, deep down most people realize that there really is no way to find the meaning of life.  Religious dogma can direct you their various ideologies.  And, science looks more to the origins of life.  But, the meaning of life is an unknowable puzzlement.  The issue makes for great philosophical discussion, but seldom any real concession, except that life is both fragile and short.  Better to just live it, than to quibble over its meaning.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(We are such creatures of habit, that we really don’t know what we are capable of until our backs are against the wall.  Sometimes those who appear to be the strongest may fall like a house of cards, while the more unassuming may surprise everyone . . . including themselves.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Midlife is when you reach the top of the ladder only to discover it’s leaning against the wrong wall.”   —   Joseph Campbell

(And even if you only make it half way, or so.   Climbing down and just moving that ladder can be a real bitch.)   —   YUR
