*** Most people of faith also tend to have this view, albeit for different reasons. It seems that no matter what happens to them, they will still have faith in God and in the world around them.

* Usually, this is the Classical response of atheists, agnostics, deists, Epicureans and the like to accusations of nihilism and hedonism; since some theists think that if there is no god or gods (or the god in question is apathetic) who will give us a meaning in such a miserable life, everyone would be DrivenToSuicide. "The fact that we have only one life to live should make it all the more precious." Also, some philosophers say that one must find their own meaning in life, not a pre-made one.
** Likewise, the only way to live on past your death is through others. Might as well ensure that you can keep people smiling, even after you're gone. Indeed, many if not most atheists embrace this as their world view in place of any belief in a higher power or afterlife, calling out critics on why they think only {{Big Brother| Is Watching}} can prevent them from becoming villains (see also: WhatYouAreInTheDark).

* This is the primary aesop of ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos''. Despite the extreme CrapsackWorld and JerkassGods around them, Sonic and friends decide that helping others is the only hope to make things better. Also a meta example, as this trope is the author's argument for atheism.

* As alleged writer of ''Literature/TheBible Ecclesiastes'' King Solomon can be considered this, even to the point some people argue it inspired Budhism at some degree. It doens't negate the existance of God but doesn't shy in detailing the futility of human life or the acts of humanity as a whole but explains the joy of it and good actions, gives an overall more tolerant feeling to the bible and also makes it more flexible giving a broader context to the whole christian religion in overall.
