Life is about what you want it to be about. For some people, it is all about money, luxuries and living on the fast lane, but for others, it is about family, loving and being loved. It is entirely a matter of personal opinion.
(All opinion, because it's up to oneself to realize the truth) Life Is about the old and the new. The old being the Wise, the educated, the experienced. Now not all of the old has been experienced, but let that not deter an ambition to experience or learn. The new of course being the less educated and in need of nourishment ( physically and mentally). In summary I believe life is about education, what type of education? you may ask, the knowledge that suits your interest of course. I dont' know if tha was helpful, but I like to think that I tried to answer your question to the best of "my knowledge".
