It’s meaningless if…

William Shakespeare wrote Life’s Brief Candle for one of his famous play, Macbeth.

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death.
Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more.
It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury
Signifying nothing - (Act 5, Scene 5, lines 17-27).

Here, Macbeth is full of despair, and he is seeing life as a story and death as a natural occurrence that is to be welcomed.

I personally think that life is nothing if we don’t believe in something. If you don’t believe in yourself, would you be able to succeed in life? If you don’t believe in your partner, would you be able to live a happy life? If you don’t believe in God, would you be able to feel the peace?

If we don’t believe in something, life is absolutely nothing. It’s meaningless. We’ll be nothing but actors in a play, where our world become the stage.
