    This is not really a “Senior” answer.

    I could pretty much give a ^#^* these days.

    I still got it, but I’m not going out of my way to get it.

    John Lennon said it, all you need is love.

    If we keep love in our words and actions, and watch for the love that comes to us through the people we meet and the things we do--that's it.

    There's no meaning, you have to find your own meaning.

    life is about what happens next. I guess it is like sleeping except for the alarm clock waking you up.

    Life isn’t “about” anything. It’s a pointlessly self-perpetuating phenomenon, the weirdest thing I could ever imagine, and to be enjoyed as best one possibly can – but don’t expect the good times to be constant because they’re good only in relation to the bad times. And try to keep in mind that there’s absolutely nothing wrong with “doing nothing” if it takes your fancy

    Enjoy your moment in time for that's all you got. Once you reach the last 10 seconds of that moment, enjoy it evev more.

    Life is about children, that's all that matters, if for some reason we couldn't have children, there is simply no point in continuing with anything.

    If you are not living authentically, then you are not living.

    As an authentic nihilistic existentialist, everyone is living every moment as if it is their last … because it just might be.
