Meaning in our lives

Reading this very interesting book: "Tuesdays with Morrie". 

It is about this old man, who is dying. He knows his time is short and he spends many of his last days talking to one of his students from years ago (Morrie used to be a teacher).  Because of his life experiences and because he knows he does not have much time left, he provides many insightful thoughts and comments on life.

One quote:

"So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they are busy doing things they think are important. This is because they are chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning."

I think there is much truth in what this old man said.
