Quote of the Day | 0201

I do not believe in immortality, and have no desire for it. The belief in it issues from the puerile egos of inferior men. In its Christian form it is little more than a device for getting revenge upon those who are having a better time on this earth. What the meaning of human life may be I don’t know: I incline to suspect that it has none. All I know about it is that, to me at least, it is very amusing while it lasts.

H.L. Mencken, ‘On The Meaning of Life’

    Mencken hat myn tinzen oer it libben moai krekt omskreaun, ik soe it net better ûnder wurden bringe kinne.
