Quote on the meaning of life

Photo credit: ecerroni from
She must rest for a moment.
And, resting, looking from one another vaguely, the old question which traversed the sky of the soul perpetually, the vast, the general question which was apt to particularise at such moments as these, when she released faculties that had been on the strain, stood over her, paused over her, darkened over her.
What is the meaning of life?
That was all - a simple question; one that tended to close in on one with years, the great revelation had never come. The great revelation perhaps never did come. Instead, there were little daily miracles, illuminations, matches struck unexpectedly in the dark; here was one.

~ Virginia Woolf
