Meaning Quotes

The moment you think you understand a great work of art, it's dead for you.

Oscar Wilde

No matter what age you are, or what your circumstances might be, you are special, and you still have something unique to offer. Your life, because of who you are, has meaning.

Barbara de Angelis

If there is meaning in life at all, then there must be meaning in suffering.

Viktor Emil Frankl

Many find in sex and economics the meaning of life and the reason of it all. The consequence of this is that the goal of life for many has become a relief of tension.

Sachindra Kumar Majumdar

Everywhere one seeks to produce meaning, to make the world signify, to render it visible. We are not, however, in danger of lacking meaning; quite the contrary, we are gorged with meaning and it is killing us.

Jean Baudrillard

The fact that life has no meaning is a reason to live --moreover, the only one.

E. M. Cioran

The deeper the experience of an absence of meaning -- in other words, of absurdity --the more energetically meaning is sought.

Vaclav Havel

Dare to err and to dream. Deep meaning often lies in childish plays.

Johann Friedrich Von Schiller

Words may show a man's wit but actions his meaning.

Benjamin Franklin

Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.

Benjamin Franklin

Henry Miller

Only an artist can interpret the meaning of life.

Novalis

If women didn't exist, all the money in the world would have no meaning.

Aristotle Onassis

There are metaphysical problems, which cannot be disposed of by declaring them meaningless. For, as I have repeatedly said, they are "beyond physics" indeed and demand an act of faith. We have to accept this fact to be honest. There are two objectionable types of believers: those who believe the incredible and those who believe that "belief" must be discarded and replaced by "the scientific method."

Max Born

How would man exist if God did not need him, and how would you exist? You need God in order to be, and God needs you for that is the meaning of your life.

Martin Buber

The world is not divine sport, it is divine destiny. There is divine meaning in the life of the world, of man, of human persons, of you and of me.

Martin Buber

Many things we misread as meaningful are quite ordinary coincidences. For example, its not unlikely that occasionally someone will phone you after youve been thinking about them. But we give these things value to make sense of our lives.

Derren Victor Brown

The meaning I picked, the one that changed my life: Overcome fear, behold wonder.

Aeschylus

The meaning I picked, the one that changed my life: Overcome fear, behold wonder.

Aeschylus

... life is meaningless unless you bring meaning to it; ... it is up to us to create our own existence. Unless you do something, unless you make something it's as though you aren't there.

Alan Alda

An eye from another world; a smell-detector, investigating the path ahead. We don't often see a snail that way, and that's because we've only recently had the tiny lenses and electronic cameras that we need to explore this miniature world. But when we meet its inhabitants face to face, we suddenly realise that their behaviour can be just as meaningful to us as the behaviour of many animals more our own size.

Sir David Frederick Attenborough

If now Isay "Stealing money is wrong," I produce a sentence which has no factual meaning that is, expresses no proposition which can be either true or false. It is as if I had written "Stealing money!!" where the shape and thickness of the exclamation marks show, by a suitable convention, that a special sort of moral disapproval is the feeling which is being expressed.

Sir Alfred Jules Ayer
