Excellence Reporter: Dr. Grandin, what is the meaning of life?

Temple Grandin:

“When I was young, I thought the meaning of life was complex. It is really very simple.

When the things a person does helps to make the world a better place, then they have achieved the meaning of life.”


~Temple Grandin, professor of animal science at Colorado State University, a best-selling author, an autistic activist, and a consultant to the livestock industry on animal behavior. She also invented the “hug box”, a device to calm those on the autism spectrum. Listed in the Time 100 list of the one hundred most influential people in the world in the “Heroes” category.
