"The meaning of life is just to be alive. It is so plain and so obvious and so simple. And yet, everybody rushes around in a great panic as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves."
— Alan Watts (via emilymlarson)
"It was the time when there comes a brief pause in the toil of the fields before the beginning of the labors of harvest - every year recurring, every year straining the nerve of the peasants. The crop was a splendid one, and bright, hot summer days had set on with short, dewy nights."
— Leo Tolstoy - Anna Karenina
"Life is both nonsensical and significant. And when we do not laugh about one aspect and speculate about the other, life is exceedingly banal, and everything is of the smallest proportions; there is then only a tiny sense and a tiny nonsense."
— Carl Jung
