“The chief purpose of life, for any one of us,

is to increase according to our capacity our knowledge of God by all the means we have, and to be moved by it to praise and thanks.
To do as we say in the Gloria in Excelsis … . We praise you, we call you holy, we worship you, we proclaim your glory, we thank you for the greatness of your splendour. And in moments of exaltation we may call on all created things to join in our chorus, speaking on their behalf … all mountains and hills, all orchards and forests, all things that creep and birds on the wing.” -– J.R.R. Tolkien, on the meaning of life.
