The Meaning of Life by a secretary of English Literature Department
The Meaning of life becomes a controversial issue in our society. In biology, life means moving, breathing, growing and reproducing. Furthermore, there are alot of theologians trying to give their opinion about the issue. They write their interpretations in their books. On the other side, Albert Camus quotes “you will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life”. From those statements, it is clear that everyone has their own interpratetion related to the meaning of their life. consequently, it is important to us to find more conciderations about the issue in order that we can interprate it wisely. Learning from an inspirative figure is an important way to do.
