Life has no meaning
Life or human existence has no real meaning or purpose because human existence occurred out of a random chance in nature, and anything that exists by chance has no intended purpose.
Life has no meaning, but as humans we try to associate a meaning or purpose so we can justify our existence.
There is no point in life, and that is exactly what makes it so special.
One should not seek to know and understand the meaning of life
The answer to the meaning of life is too profound to be known and understood.
You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.
The meaning of life is to forget about the search for the meaning of life.
Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather must recognize that it is he who is asked. In a word, each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible.
Life is bad
Life is a bitch, and then you die.
Better never to have been.
