Seeking meaning

Jeannette Winterson, author of Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, had this to say:

"I do not believe in a sky god but the religious impulse in us is more than primitive superstition. We are meaning-seeking creatures and materialism plus good works and good behaviour does not seem to be enough to provide meaning."

Are we meaning-seeking creatures? Why would seek meaning? How do we know to seek meaning? Why are we so inclined?

We are meaning-seeking animals and materialism plus excellent performs and excellent behavior does not seem to be enough to offer significance..
