"What do we live for, if not to make life less difficult for each other?"

George Eliot (1819 - 1880)

The quote ought to be what should we live for.

I think a lot of people live for a lot of other reasons, and most (though fortunately not all) are not very altruistic.

This was written in a day and age when selfishness was not quite the "norm" and the "me" generation hadn't arrived yet.

That's not to say that life was perfect back then but at least people knew their neighbors and everyone showed up for a barn raising.

We could learn a lot if we could take the best from bygone times and add it to what we know now.
