What is the Purpose of Life?

It is to Find Meaning in Suffering

To live is to suffer, to survive is to find some meaning in the suffering”

(Friedrich Nietzsche )

The axiom that death and taxes are the only certainties of life is incomplete as it has left out another unavoidable facet of life which is suffering. To live is to suffer. Nobody, whether emperor or pauper, can escape suffering.
