An acronym for “Life Is Fantastic,” LIF has its roots in ancient Greek philosophy. It has evolved over time to be included in the 21st century jargon of highly intelligent, laid-back, fun, and fashion-forward people of all ages and backgrounds who believe that a life well-lived is a life spent enjoying one’s family, friends, community, and the things that make each of us happy.
Socrates (469 BC-399 BC): “Not life, but a LIFE THAT IS FANTASTIC, is to be chiefly valued.” Sadly, the guy translating this from Greek made it “Not life, but good life,” and we all know that fantastic beats good - in any language!
Wall Street executives, AIG conventioneers, and those voted off Survivor prior to injury or illness taking them out: "LIF!"
