Quote of the Day: Stanley Kubrick, on Meaning and Fulfillment


“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile but that it is indifferent; but if we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death — however mutable man may be able to make them — our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.”
- Stanley Kubrick, interviewed by Eric Nordern, Playboy (September 1968)

"However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light."  So true.
