"Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow." -Albert Einstein
We as humans associate life with many different things, whether it is love, loss, happiness, or sadness. Yet we all have failed to answer one thing, why live? This can be tied into 'What is the meaning of life?' 'Why are humans on planet earth?' or even 'Is there some other being in space?' So why do we live? Why do we wake up every day and go to school and learn, or go to work and get paid? This is a very open question, and there are many answers, but maybe one day, someone will come across this piece and compile it with all of the other answers and actually come up with the true answer. Why live? To learn. To explore. To go above and beyond our wildest dreams. We desire more. Ever since the beginning of time, humans have wanted to learn. Learn how to become more efficient (wheel), learn how to get across this body of water (boats), or learn how to supply the demand (assembly lines). Littered through out our quest to learn are obstacles, like love, betrayal, happiness, sadness, but eventually those obstacles are dealt with, and we delve into our forever ongoing mission of knowledge. So the next day you are in class about ready to fall asleep, or at your job, ready to hand in your badge and say 'I quit', just think. Think about everything you have learned and how the little things you do, can impact the entire world.
