How Did Rick and Morty Affect the Way You View Life?

At first glance, Rick and Morty may appear to be a silly show made only for entertainment purposes. But, if you’re a die-hard fan, you’ll know it has intricate layers and is incredibly insightful—discussing even the most sensitive life issues.

Rick and Morty enjoys playing with philosophy. Throughout the many seasons, it was able to intricately describe and show us the meaning of life, how vast the universe is, and how insignificant we are in comparison. 

For many people, the idea that we were not created for a specific purpose can be soul-crushing. But, for Rick and Morty, this is simply how life is and has always been. Their message to all of us is to stop searching for a higher purpose because we’re all going to die in the end—and instead focus on what makes us happy.

We hope you were able to learn a thing or two about love and life through this collection. Make sure you keep the lessons you’ve learned from the list in mind the next time you watch this series!

Hi, I’m Karen, a content curator and writer for Quote Ambition; I’m also a marketing and advertising professional. Beyond the keyboard and the screen, I’m someone who’s out to enjoy every bit that life has to offer!

Poetry, philosophy, history, and movies are all topics I love writing about! However, my true passion is in traveling, photography, and finding common ground to which everyone from different cultures can relate.

With the many places I’ve been to, I found that love, inspiration, and happiness are some things that bring people together. No matter how different we are on the outside, I’m a true believer that our emotions don’t lie; if you dig deep into our psyche, we’re all the same inside.

This belief was further amplified when I joined Quote Ambition. Through the quotes I’ve read, collected, organized, and written about, I found that humans are resilient, creative, and compassionate.

We take from each others’ hearts and courage, and it’s through our individual experiences that we learn how to rise above our challenges and pain. In so many ways, Quote Ambition is a platform that allows people from all over the world to gain the inspiration they need anytime, anywhere!
