All of us are meaning-seekers…

“All of us are meaning-seekers. We approach every painting, novel,
film, symphony, or ballet unconsciously hoping that it will move us
one step further on the journey toward answering the question, ‘Why am
I here?’ People living in the postmodern world, however, are faced
with an excruciating dilemma. Their hearts long to find ultimate
meaning, while at the same time their critical minds do not believe it
exists. We are homesick, but have no home. So we turn to the arts and
aesthetics to satisfy our thirst for the Absolute. But if we want to
find our true meaning in life, our search cannot end there. Art or
beauty is not the destination; it is a signpost pointing towards our
desired destination.”

– from Chasing Francis by Ian Morgan Cron
