The purpose of life

The purpose of life is to live it,
to taste experience to the utmost,
to reach out eagerly and
without fear for newer and richer experience.

Hearts Desire

Some prices are just too high,
no matter how much you may want the prize.
The one thing you can't trade
for your heart's desire is your heart.

Reverence for Life

Reverence for Life affords me my fundamental
principle of morality,
namely, that good consists in maintaining,
assisting, and enhancing life and
that to destroy, harm, or to hinder life is evil.
Affirmation of the world -- that is affirmation
of the will to live,
which appears in phenomenal forms all around me -- is only possible for me in that
I give myself out for other life.

~Albert Schweitzer
