I guess to find my way through life and leave something behind to help the world.More than anything I guess to learn what life truly is with it and without it.

Would I lie to you?

To obtain the goals set by today's culture? I'm not sure. All I really know is that living day-to-day has been enjoyable. Maybe the purpose of life is to die, I won't be sure until I die anyways.

...wish I could figure it out.
But I somehow feel like I'm here to take care of kids. And by kids, I'm talking everything from babies to high schoolers...but I personally think that "purpose in life" is a very personal thing, not something that can be generalized across humanity or even a single culture. Because even something as simple as "to survive" doesn't really work.

I am a breath of insanity in a world of chaos.

I don't know if that's the purpose of life, exactly, but it does make a nice perk.

This thread has me thinking of Monty Python's 'The Meaning of Life'. That's about as deep as I care to think on the subject.

great, now even house fans like yaoi...what has this world come to =/

as to the topic...there is none, why would there be any purpose ? you can only make up your own pupose for yourself which, of course, wont serve any other purpose than make your life worth living (in your eyes at least)

The Purpose of life is to Die.

Since you can die, Life holds value.

If life were ethernal, it would lose its value, since you do not value what you do not fight for, you do not value what you can not lose.

If you want to succeed
Then you don't need Good Luck
You need the ability to overcome Bad Luck

Happines and Light needs a source to exist
Hatred fuels itself and Darkness exist where there is no Light

Why does life have to have a meaning?
Why can't it just "be"?

Would it throw you into a downward spiral to think there's not some "higher purpose" for which we were created, or some "higher being" that created us?

I personally believe that we evolved and weren't "created" for any particular purpose other than as another animal in the food chain.

If there is a "higher being", it doesn't concern itself with us anymore than most of us concern ourselves with the everyday life of a germ. We just let it be.

If you've ever thought or said "Nice Guys finish last" and really meant it, then you should probably read this LJ post by DivaLion. It's incredibly insightful whether you're male or female.

From a bumper sticker I like:
"If you're gonna ride my ass, at least pull my hair."

Time is a companion that goes with us on a journey. It reminds us to cherish each moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we have lived.
-Star Treak: Generations

Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. I am not afraid. -Marcus Aurelius

"Struggle is the father of all things. It is not by the principles of humanity that man lives or is able to preserve himself above the animal world, but solely by means of the most brutal struggle."
-Adolf Hitler

and about suicide...

I remember that I had to write a paper about this in 11 grade... at the time I wrote a seven page paper explaining why life was god's joke on humanity...
I think I might have gotten a B or an A, but it's been too long; so, I can't remember which one.

Anyways, I guess I'd have to say that life just is...
'til it isn't when your dead.

"Officially, this machine doesn't exist, you didn't get it from me,
and I don't know you. Make sure it doesn't leave the building."
