    • In existentialism, meaning is understood as the worth of life.Meaning in existentialism is descriptive ; therefore it is unlike typical, prescriptive conceptions of "the meaning of life".Due to the methods of existentialism, prescriptive or declarative statements about meaning are unjustified.Meaning is something only for an individual, it has a home only in one person.The verb "to mean" implies something exists to be taken or learned from something else; and since subjects mean different things to every individual, meaning is purely subjective. Thus it is 'subjective' or should be understood to have an 'anti-system' or 'anti-answer' sensibility. [1]

    • To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
      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.
