There Is No Meaning To Life

There is no meaning to life except the meaning each of us
gives to our lives by the unfolding of our powers,by living productively.

Erich Fromm

I've read some of Fromm's work, very deep and meaningful, I love this quote. Thanks Bren.

I haven't read Fromm's work, but it sure has a ring of truth to me.

I love this quote. It is one of my pet peeves to see people eeking through life. Take these criminals that have such creative ways to rob people. What would the world be like if these people would use their potential for good instead of bad.
