Man's Search for Meaning

I read Victor Frankl's "Man's Search for Meaning", wow very powerful book, it's an amazing story of survival and the story of one man's spirit that is remarkable.   Guess we are all survivors.  One powerful line in it is "We need to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life-daily and hourly.  Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its  problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly set for each individual."  The human spirit is a powerful thing.  My mind is still kind of full, so guess I need to sit with it.  :)
