Something to think about.

I heard about this news of an actress commiting suicide today and have been hearing about a lot of such depressing stories lately. That got me into thinking... We run after things that constantly elude us. And one day when we get them we realise they dont satisfy us. So what really would satisfy us?

" Unless you assume a God, the question of life's purpose is meaningless." Bertrand Russell

Interestingly, read this article on a website that coincidently mentioned about a similar story.

" ..Comedian and actor Chris Farley was found dead in his downtown Chicago apartment on 18 December 1997. He died of a drug overdose. His death at age 33 was no surprise to his friends. He had been in and out of various rehabs to clean up his life. Shortly before his death he told a reporter: 'I used to think that you could get to a level of success where the laws of the universe didn't apply. But they do. It's still "life on life's terms", not on movie-star terms. I still have to work at relationships. I still have to work on my weight, and some of my other demons. Once I thought that if I had enough money in the bank, if I had enough fame, everything would be all right. But I'm a human being like everyone else. I'm not exempt.' So before you step onto the path, stop and ask yourself, 'Where does this path lead?'

'...Do not walk in the way of evil.' Proverbs 4:14 NKJV "
