Monday thought of the week: permission to jump into puddles

A thought:

So when I think of the meaning of life, that’s not an eternal and unanswerable question — to me, that’s in arm’s reach of me everyday. So to you, at age six-and-three-quarters, may I suggest that you explore nature as much as you possibly can. And occasionally that means getting your clothes dirty because you might want to jump into puddles and your parents don’t want you to do that. You tell them that I gave you permission.

– Astronomer and Cosmos host Neil deGrasse Tyson at a lecture, when asked by a six-year-old boy about the meaning of life (January 15, 2015)
