Quote of the Day: Man’s Search for Meaning

“Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual. These tasks, and therefore the meaning of life, differ from man to man, and from moment to moment. Thus it is impossible to define the meaning of life in a general way…

…by declaring that a man is responsible and must actualize the potential meaning of his life, I wish to stress that the true meaning of life is to be discovered in the world rather than within man or his own psyche… The more one forgets himself- by giving himself to a cause to serve or another person to love- the more human he is and the more he actualizes himself.”

– Viktor E. Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning

If there’s a single book that should be required reading for everyone, it’s this one.
