The Wonder of Life

‘The two lessons I like to give is first, we are insignificant and second, the future is miserable. Now, you might think that that should depress you but I would argue that in fact, it should embolden you and give you a different kind of consolation.

Because if the universe doesn’t care about us and if we’re an accident in a remote corner of the universe, in some sense it makes us more precious; the meaning in our lives is provided by us. And we are here by accidents of evolution and the formation of planets and we should make the most of our brief moment in the sun because, this is all we have.’

– Lawrence Krauss
