The Meaning of Life
June 5, 2003 |
Dear Mr. Keillor,
Not to sound glib, but what is the meaning of life?
Aaron, the meaning of life is life itself: to live, to enjoy all the big experiences and the little ones too, to arise every day with good humor and hope and kindness in your heart and to go do your work, to love your people, to survive your own foolishness and stubborn pride, to tell stories, to teach your children, and then, when death knocks on the door, to go with grace and dignity.
