Always look on the bright side of life

Humanism is an optimistic philosophy. We see no point in facing life's adversities pessimistically. We are also very realistic about death. We know we are going to die. And actually, we find this thought strangely very motivating. Our thinking is thus: If we are going to die, we might as well make the best of it while we are here. And that means, not succumbing to pessimism. We Humanists believe we can make things better, if we just try. And when we can't, we might as well laugh about our predicament. So, in the spirit of this outlook, I am sharing the following video - from Monty Python's Life of Brian. Enjoy!


  1. Love that philosophy, love that song, and like the new look of your blog!

  2. Thanks - finally got around to playing with the new tools.

  3. Good post- admirable --the lyrics is simply superb, thanks Jen

  4. Funny you would post this, I plan to have it as the closing bit for my memorial service. It might freak out those that come just to make sure I'm really dead but my real friends and family will laugh and cry and say "that's Mark for you...."

    1. I love that idea Marke! Though I hope you aren't planning on dying anytime soon.

  5. Don't worry Jennifer, I am 54 and am planing on living another 30+ years. Life is just too good to quit before I am all used up.
