The tragedy of a meaningless life

The tragedy of a meaningless life

“Millions all around us are living the tragedy of meaningless life, the “life” of spiritual death. That is what makes our society most radically different from every society in history: not that it can fly to the moon, enfranchise more voters, have the grossest national product, conquer disease, or even blow up the entire planet, but that it does not know why it exists.”

—Peter Kreeft Heaven: The Heart’s Deepest Longing

  • I’ve been off the computer for weeks with a pinched nerve so I just read this.  If you mean the flowers that look like lily of the valley fountains on a bush, they are called pieris….  “it” is called pieris?  I’m so glad about your diagnosis also…

  • Jane,

    I’m so sorry to hear about your pinched nerve. I hope it’s better now.

    Thank you so much for the flower identification. I don’t know much about flowers, but I’m trying to learn more. I like to know what I’m looking at. But I can’t find many resources for identifying garden flowers.
