Kazakhstan&rsquos President Nursultan Nazarbayev has shared this thoughts about the meaning of life, Tengrinews reports.

&ldquoThe meaning of life for an ordinary person is to live well and work for the good of his or her homeland. A person is not supposed to spend his or her life dwelling on the past thinking what he or she has done wrong, neither a person is supposed to dwell entirely on the future thinking about what will happen in 10 years time. Who can possibly know that? We do not know what will happen tomorrow,&rdquo the President told the journalists at the briefing on June 8.

&ldquoOur nature, our Earth are fragile and subject to many dangers. We should remember this. Our planet is a tiny part of the galaxy and the cosmos. In space it is threatened by asteroids. On the surface the threats are volcanoes, earthquakes, hurricanes and tsunamis. It is hardly possibly to live if thinking about all these threats all the time. The meaning of life, according to most of the  religions, is to serve the God and be righteous. Unfortunately, not all people do this. The meaning of life is to live well, love your family and friends, love your homeland and create the future for your children,&rdquo Nazarbayev said answering the question of a Tengrinews journalist about the meaning of life.
