Life has no meaning. Each of us has meaning and we bring it to life. It is a waste to be asking the question when you are the answer.
- Joseph Campbell

born March 26, 1904: Ever wonder who first uttered the New Age proclamation: Follow your bliss? It was Joseph Campbell, mythologizer of the myth, who was born 109 years ago today.

Sounds like he was advocating hedonism, which is hardly 'new age' since it's something [some of] the Greeks were into a very long time ago.
