A Meaningful Life

Marcus Borgman, quoted by Randy Harris, lists a few statements that you should be able truthfully to say often. If you can't say these things much of the time, it is likely you could be doing much better with your life:

There’s no other place I’d rather be.
There’s nothing I’d rather be doing.
There’s no one else I’d rather be with.
I’ll remember this.


  1. Mark, did Randy say this in print? And if so which book? Or does he only have the one book? Are you sure it isn't Marcus Borg instead of Borgman? I'm familiar with Borg, who debates N. T. Wright but not Borgman. Just fact checking before I use this.

  2. Hey Bob!

    I actually have been listening to Randy a lot on iTunes University. If you go to the iTunes store and search for Randy Harris, there are a lot of free lectures available.

    He did say "Borgman", so I quoted him that way, though "Borg" was my first thought, also.

    But it was from a speech, not something in print. The lecture was called "Entends-tu les chiens aboyer." The quote is at 37:30. He says, "Borgman...I think."

    Probably was Borg.
