“Meaningless! Meaningless!” says the Teacher. “Utterly meaningless! Everything is meaningless.” “What do people gain from all their labors at which they toil under the sun?.” Ecclesiastes 1:2-3
“Midway upon the journey of our life, I found myself within a forest dark, for the straightforward pathway had been lost.” -― Dante Alighieri, The Divine Comedy
Having a midlife crisis? Wondering “what does it all mean anyway?…”
You could go out and get yourself a shiny new sports car.
You can take that energy and angst and go make some art.
That’s what Dante did.
And the result was “The Divine Comedy.”
Go make your masterpiece.
