“There are three main avenues on which one arrives at meaning in life.
The first is by creating a work or doing a deed.
The second is by experiencing something or encountering someone; in other words, meaning can be found not only in work but also in love.
Most important, however, is the third avenue to meaning in life: even the helpless victim of a hopeless situation, facing a fate he cannot change, may rise above himself, may grow beyond himself, and by so doing change himself.”
~ Viktor Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning
