    Greetings once again, young earthlings! I have another question I'd like to ask you all; I'm still not trusted after the whole '42' incident, so I want to hear your input too!

    This week's question is: "What is the difference between being alive and truly living?"

    There's no right or wrong answer here, and anything you say will be great for my databanks, so please, answer away.

    I think truly living is when you feel fully content and fufilled with your life.

    Being alive is just going through the motions of life without contentment.
    Truly living would be being content.

    Life is what you make of it, seek contentment in everything you do. If you don't enjoy it, get out. Stop doing it. Do what you need to do to pursue what you feel is your true calling. Stop at nothing to achieve it, you can do it. If you can be content in all you do, truly making a difference or fulfilling your personally defined 'purpose' in life, you're living.

    My mom always said 'be happy with what you have'.

    I always replied, 'mom, when I've got it, I'll be happy with it'.

    I think this is a good summary, and definitely a nice goal to aim for :yep:
