Challenging the meaning of life is the truest expression of the state of being human.

You can take away my wife, you can take away my children, you can strip me of my clothes and my freedom, but there is one thing no person can ever take away from me - and that is my freedom to choose how I will react to what happens to me!

Viktor E Frankl
I try to do everything as soon as possible, and not at the last moment. This ensures that, when I am overburdened with work, I will not face the added pressure of knowing that something is still to be done.

The last of the human freedoms is to choose one's attitudes.

A man's concern, even his despair, over the worthwhileness of life is an existential distress but by no means a mental disease.

There are only two races, the decent and the indecent.

Fear may come true that which one is afraid of.

It is well known that humor, more than anything else in the human make-up, can afford an aloofness and an ability to rise above any situation, even if only for a few seconds.

Consider a movie: it consists of thousands upon thousands of individual pictures, and each of them makes sense and carries a meaning, yet the meaning of the whole film cannot be seen before its last sequence is shown. However, we cannot understand the whole film without having first understood each of its components, each of the individual pictures. Isn't it the same with life? Doesn't the final meaning of life, too, reveal itself, it at all, only at its end, on the verge of death?

I recommend that the Statue of Liberty be supplemented by a Statue of Responsibility on the west coast.
