The Meaning of Life

A philosopher went into a closet for ten years to contemplate the question, What is life?

After the ten years were up and the philospher had emerged back into public life, an old colleague asked where in heaven's name the philosopher had been all those years?

"In a closet," replied the philosopher. "I wanted to know what life really is."

"And have you found an answer?"

"Yes," replied the philosopher. "I think it can best be expressed by saying that life is like a bridge."

"That is all well and good," replied the colleague, "but can you be a little more explicit? Can you tell me how life is like a bridge?"

"Oh," replied the philosopher after some thought, "maybe you are right; perhaps life is not like a bridge."
