“What gain is there under the sun?”
“At the end of the day, life is frustratingly absurd. The cycles of nature are screaming that message to you. You live. You exert a lot of energy, but nothing new happens. Just like the sun, wind, and rivers. Then you die. And one other thing: after you die, you will be quickly forgotten.” (Peter Enns, Ecclesiastes)
“Taught meaning, or invested with meaning?”
“If I find in myself a desire which nothing in this world can satisfy, the only logical explanation is that I was made for another world.” (C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity)
