quote: on really living life to its fullest


People say that what we're all are seeking is a meaning for life... I think that what we're really seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonance within our innermost being and reality, so that we can actually feel the rapture of being alive.

-Joseph Campbell

I like it. And we must live life to its fullest or else we cheat on our existence hiding behind banal behaviour.
