Even if it’s not always apparent, we all have a purpose in life. In some cases it will be patently obvious, while in others it’s about as seemingly unlikely as one can imagine.

The meaning of life is something that has mesmerized, perplexed and confounded mankind throughout the ages.

Crusaders come in many forms. Some are obvious, like those who fearlessly take up arms in the pursuit of justice. Those who rely on other tools, like the power of the press, are probably less known, though their contributions are certainly no less noteworthy.

When it comes to understanding our existence, most of us probably believe we have a good handle on the subject. But do we?

When we set our minds to accomplishing something, there’s usually nothing to stop us except for the roadblocks we place in our own way. But, in the absence of such hindrances, we’re generally free and clear to proceed with fulfilling our objectives, no matter how unlikely they may seem to others. That point is driven home with dramatic flair and heart-pounding thrills in director Robert Zemeckis’s exhilarating new historical drama, “The Walk.” Joseph Gordon Levitt, Birdman, 2015 Movies, Hd Movies, Movies Online, Robin Williams, Matthew Mcconaughey, World Trade Center, Jamie Dornan

Have you ever heard someone utter something that seems totally inappropriate or ludicrous, only to find out that the statement in question is one the speaker’s most cherished beliefs? Hard to fathom, isn’t it? Yet such instances are commonplace, since beliefs are highly personal, heartfelt sentiments, notions that everyone holds onto zealously (and that are generally unshakable except under the most coercive circumstances). That seemingly strange though routine proposition gets put under... Man Movies, Joaquin Phoenix, Cannes Film Festival 2015, Cannes 2015, Film Stills, Caroline Flack, Musicals

For many of us, such expressions seem warm and inviting but are, nevertheless, understandably vague.

Is the world we live in something that we create, or is it something that’s capriciously thrust upon us? Consequently, should we look upon our circumstances with supreme optimism or eternal pessimism? Indeed, what are we to make of it all?
