What Do You Want to Be When You Grow Up?

What is the Goal of Life?

John Lennon happiness
John Lennon remembers his childhood.
John Lennon explains the meaning of life. He always went his own way. The above quote is poignant because Lennon lost his mother soon after in a random traffic accident. That no doubt reinforced his decision to stick with that response, which made him a rebel, which made him ... a Beatle.

It is difficult to dispute that wanting to be "happy" when you grow up is a pretty good answer. Of course, is also is the kind of smart-alecky response that will get you a failing grade or detention.

I'm a big Lennon fan, as big as any, but let's not get too carried away with the Great Man's wisdom. He also said that happiness was a warm gun. ;)
