Life is as much a concept as it is a reality. Choose it, live it, take it or give it ... just try not let it pass you by.

"It's life, Jim... but not as we know it."
Dr Spock - Star Trek
"Life ... don't talk to me about life"
Marvin the Paranoid Android
Hitch-Hikers Guide to the Galaxy
"Life's like a movie. Write your own ending. Keep believing. Keep pretending."
Kermit the Frog
The Muppet Movie (1977)
Kermit was based on Woody Allen, IMHO.
"Always look on the bright side of life."
Monty Python
Classic British Comedy Team (1969-84)
"Life is as tedious as a twice told-tale..."
William Shakespeare
English playwright
Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forward
Soren Kierkegaard
Danish philosopher (1813-55)
Some more meanings :
...a lifetime...
..live and breathe ...
..live and learn ...

..life of 10 hours.. The duration something like a battery functions
...cannot do something for the life of... OR can't do something to save your life.Expresses confusion or limitation.

...as large as life...
...life is too short...
..live and let live...
...live life to the full...

...life of the party...
... come to life ...
...living the life of Reilly...
...Life in the fast lane...

...live the high life...

...the bane of your life...

Two suggested references for the meaning of life:
  • The Ultimate Hitchhikers Guide, by Douglas Adams
  • Godel, Escher, Bach: an Eternal Golden Braid, by Douglas R. Hofstatdter


  • The first option is certainly the easier read.
    The second one will likely require Bawls.
    Why is it that they these two fellers have the same first name? Coincidence? I think not... poof!!! (Renee Descartes)

    Kermit (the simple file transfer protocol) was based on Kermit (the frog), according to Susan Catchings, wife of Bill Catchings, who may have had something to do with Kermit, as the story goes. Click!
