“Human beings, in a sense, may be thought of as multidimensional creatures composed of such poetic considerations as the individual need
for self-realization, subdued passions for overwhelming beauty, and a hunger for meaning beyond the flavors that enter and exit the physical body.”
Aberjhani, Splendid Literarium: A Treasury of Stories, Aphorisms, Poems, and Essays

“...only if you worship it. You serve whatever you worship.”
John Green, Turtles All the Way Down

Ali Smith
“It's a question of how we regard our situations, how we look and see where we are, and how we choose, if we can, when we are seeing undeceivedly, not to despair and, at the same time, how best to act. Hope is exactly that, that's all it is, a mater of how we deal with the negative acts towards human beings by other human beings in the world, remembering that they and we are all human, that nothing human is alien to us, the foul and the fair, and that most important of all we're here for a mere blink of the eyes, that's all.”
Ali Smith, Autumn

Stevie J. Cole, Jag

Grace Sara
“However, one day, this shallow living will not be enough for you. You are gifted with a questioning mind that will marvel at the deepest parts of the world around you. It will crave divine understanding because you are part of the divine whole, and it is the nature of the soul to seek to return to its spiritual state.”
Grace Sara, Awakening in the 21st Century: Surviving a Spiritually Dormant Society

Erik Satie
“I have never written a note I didn't mean.”
Erik Satie

“Stored personal memories along with handed down collective memories of stories, legends, and history allows us to collate our interactions with a physical and social world and develop a personal code of survival. In essence, we all become self-styled sages, creating our own book of wisdom based upon our studied observations and practical knowledge gleaned from living and learning. What we quickly discover is that no textbook exist how to conduct our life, because the world has yet to produce a perfect person – an ideal observer – whom is capable of handing down a concrete exemplar of epistemic virtues. We each draw upon the guiding knowledge, theories, and advice available for us in order to explore the paradoxes, ironies, inconsistencies, and the absurdities encountered while living in a supernatural world. We mold our personal collection of information into a practical practicum how to live and die. Each day we define and redefine who we are, determine how we will react today, and chart our quest into an uncertain future.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

“A principled life begins by accepting the evident truth that we must die. Death becomes us. Knowledge of the impermanence of our existence reassures us that how we live does make a difference. Because our allotted time for living is finite, we must make the most of each day.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

“Every form of life must struggle. Life is an aberration; death is ordinary. Life requires obstruction, conflict, reverses, and resolve. Life requires questing. Questing provides the meaning that we seek, a purpose to justify the inevitable struggle to live knowing the absurdity that we must die.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

“A person achieves enlightenment only through a purposeful engagement with life and by resolutely searching for truth and shedding artifices.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

“Meaning beginns in the words, in the action, continues in your head and ends nowhere. There is no end to meaning. Meaning which is resolved, parcelled, labelled and ready for export is dead, impartient — and meaningless.”

“When an image depends on the next for a complete meaning, it moves the story and audience along without choking them with pathos”
Val Uchendu

Marcus Österberg
“Usability is not only about ease of use but also about bringing something meaningful, having an objective in common with the user.”
Marcus Österberg, Web Strategy for Everyone

Will Advise
“Meanings with no purpose are useful for meaningless debates on what the "meaner" meant. And that's what #politics is all about - misreading.”

“Everything has a hidden secret meaning to be revealed or to be sealed.”
Auliq Ice

Paul Isaacs
“Neurotypical - Is the Word Useful? And/or Meaningful

The word itself doesn't make sense - being used to describe "others" (people who aren’t on the spectrum) society is a mixture of different sorts of people and rather than lumping people into one "group" (neurotypical society, neurotypicals, NTS) wouldn't it be best to say people who don't have autism? People who aren't on spectrum? It has also been used as word to "attack” people who don't have autism which surely is reverse prejudice? Two wrongs certainly don’t make a right in this case.

I like people on the basis of being people it doesn't matter who they are or were they come from I like them for their personalities not because of anything other – human beings are all unique and that means we are all equal in the world.”
Paul Isaacs, Living Through the Haze

Kate   O'Neill
“There are fundamental ways that meaning informs our lives and work, if we are conscious of it and recognize its shape. The shape meaning takes in marketing is empathy: All relevant customer understanding and communications flow from being aware of and aligned with the customer’s needs and motivations. In business in a broader sense, the shape meaning takes is strategy. It guides every decision and action. In technology and data science, meaning can drive the pursuit of applied knowledge toward that which improves our experiences and our lives. Creative work becomes more meaningful the more it conveys truth. And in our lives overall, an understanding of what is meaningful to us provides us with purpose, clarity, and intention.”
Kate O'Neill, Pixels and Place: Connecting Human Experience Across Physical and Digital Spaces

Kate   O'Neill
“To consider meaning at any level implies a search for the depth and dimensions of what is significant, what truly matters.”

Mark Twain
“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born an the day you find out why.”
Mark Twain

“Life with women is risky and dangerous, but without women it is completely boring and unmeaningful. Life consists of hard choice, therefore, between risk and interest, danger and meaningfulness, respectively.”
Elmar Hussein

“I'm left with the pages of my life just turning,
The story being filled slowly day by day,
But the end is approaching and it is out of my hands,
Hopefully I will reach my climax,
Hopefully I will be able to draw my conclusions,
Until then …
All I can do is just turn the page”
Morris R. Gates

“Life is the one riddle that is denotative, referential. Although every person shares a common ultimate destiny, each person must work out their own life, script their own personal salvation, and wrestle with the fear and trembling that is inherent when we consider our mortality.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

Sara Baume
“The ability to talk to people: that’s the key to the world. It doesn’t matter whether you are able to articulate your own thoughts and feelings and meanings or not. What matters is being able to make the noises that encourage others to feel comfortable, and the inquiries which present them with the opportunity to articulate their thoughts and feelings and meanings, the particulars of their existences, their passions, preoccupations, beliefs. If you can talk to people in this way, you can go - you can get - anywhere in this world, in life.”
Sara Baume, A Line Made by Walking

Linda McGinn Waterman
