Albert Einstein on Why We Are Alive

When Marion Block Anderson asked Albert Einstein: “Why are we alive?”, Einstein replied by this:

Dear Miss Block:
The question “Why” in the human sphere is easy to answer: to create satisfaction for ourselves and for other people. In the extra-human sphere the question has no meaning. Also the belief in God is no way out for in this case you may ask “Why God.””
Sincerely yours,

Albert Einstein.
