Meaning

…[that] it did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life—daily and hourly.

Our answer must consist, not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual.

        I was just thinking that it’s right na hindi lang dapat meditation and talk, but it can’t be all action or conduct either. Some things need thinking about and talking about before doing about. (:
