We wandered lonely as a cloud. Who wrote that?
I liked that quote. "Tell me more, tell me sweet little more... Tell me. Tell me..."
AshtonFirefly, philosopher re: profile; I like you.
Is this statement correct? If yes or no, why yes or no?
Statement: "Your Life Does NOT Have Meaning..."
Anything showing up on this thread I may use on my blog. But there will be no attribution, and more likely than not it will be paraphrased.
Alrighty. Let's see...
"Your life does not have meaning..."
Is this statement correct?
I think it is both correct and incorrect. Meaning is relative to the person making the judgement. What may be meaningful to one, may not be meaningful to another. It depends on one's criteria.
The concept of meaning implies purpose. In order for there to be purpose, there must be a one who is using it for some sort of purpose. That typically also assumes a God-like entity which has some sort of purpose for our lives. Otherwise, if there is no God-like entity who has power over our lives, then the only one who could actually create some sort of purpose for our own lives is ourselves. In which case, we could arbitrarily create meaning for our lives.
In other words, I don't think meaningfulness is a concrete term. It varies with the mind doing the judging. It is impossible to separate the concept from the one doing the judging. Therefore, the answer to that question will change. And in each case, it would be correct. So yes and no, depending on who asks. For you, my life may or may not have meaning. For me, my life may or may not have meaning. And we would both be correct. Because meaning implies meaning for the person asking the question.
So I reread my article and it made absolutely no sense. It's been a while since I've delved into philosophical mode. However, should you for any reason wish to use anything I just said, I demand attribution, including quotation marks and exact references. Or I will sue you for intellectual property theft. Thank you.
Please post the link to your article. I am posting your forum post on my blog with the link. If You wish.
OK. I will say it. Let's get the vertical reply boxes fixed.
Anyone else seeing vertical re: reply formatting?
I checked your profile. I am already following.
I don't know how to respond re: your experience.
Nice forum post and hub.
Take it or leave it.
I wish to follow too, as I am lost and only the warmer weather right now makes me smile!!
But this is not about that. This is about more. So now what re: random visitor?
The OP has the word wanderer in it. If you're trying to figure out where to go with this suspect forum topic, I give you the great Google's take on all this:
wandering present participle of wan·der (Verb)
Walk or move in a leisurely, casual, or aimless way.
Move slowly away from a fixed point or place: "please don't wander off again".
EDIT: The OP has the word wandering in it would have been better (and lucid).

I want to be sure I'm doing this the right way. I've been showing Audrey Hunt and the photo date for attribution on my own photos. I've also used Audrey Hunt/vocalcoach (my hub name) and the date of the photo. The Learning Center doesn't give information for attributing your own...

Can traffic to a hub be increased by proper photo attribution?A few days ago I have changed photo attribution on one of my hubs to a correct one, instead of listing just a name of source I did it correctly, from that day on, this hub's traffic increased from couple of views per day to a hundred a...

I'm just curious. A few times now, out of the blue, some have written something negative about my writing style. Rather than say something publicly, I've wanted to approach them quietly, only to discover that every single one of these people have their 'contact' button disabled, and one can...

I was taking a peek at the upcoming contest and I came across the photo galleries category as it was something I've not stumbled upon on HubPages.Since this category was new to me, I was really confused as to what this category was for. I've now figured it out but when I was looking at the category...

The atheists agnostics skeptics apatheists; all while away their lives; finding no purpose in life and no goal in life, their actions become meaningless and their thoughts get frustrated.
by Ron Hooft 7 years ago
Christians often tell atheists that without god there is no purpose to life. But they never tell us what this purpose is. So I would Christians o tell us in concrete terms what purpose it is they are talking about. It must be grandiose and a meaning purpose being it comes from a god. So all us...
