“All we want is to be completely human and in each other's company.”

“Life is like arriving late for a movie, having to figure out what is going on without bothering anybody
with a lot of questions, and then being unexpectedly called away before you find out how it ends.”

“The cave [that] you fear to enter holds the treasure [that] you seek.”

“I don't believe people are looking for the meaning of life as much as they are
looking for the experience of being alive.”

— Joseph Campbell
