Paperknife – moi?

21 April, 2006

For Sartre (memo to self: read more Sartre …),

We are not like paperknives, designed to fulfil a determinate function.

We are more like bits of flint found on the beach, which can be put to many uses without being essentially "for" anything.

So meaning is not something that belongs to life; it is something that we give it, through our own free will.

Scary, huh?
