What is the meaning of life?

THE meaning of life is the sound of one hand clapping. EACH PERSON'S meaning of life is whatever s/he says it is. There is no wrong answer, although there are many that many people find silly. MY meaning of life is to act honorably towards all people, do the best I can with the cards I've been dealt (which were pretty good, so...), help my loved ones with minimal interference in their lives, and enjoy my friends and family. Or, I could say, sit on the grass on a warm sunny day, listening to dixie and drinking cold beer.
