Yesterday, while flying 35,000 feet high in the sky, from the west coast to the east coast, I was afforded five quiet hours to spend productively, and so I pondered the meaning of life.

As I contemplated and considered, I clicked through the i-Universe a.k.a. google and found these seven quotes that eventually brought me to the “great perhaps.”
