Victor Frankl Quote

I read this book when I was 23 or 24. It was great. I wish I had remembered this tidbit. For too many of my middle years did I long for a release from stress, thinking the struggle was for nought.

The quote was in an email from Metanexus.

“What man actually needs is not a tensionless state but rather the striving and struggling for some goal worthy of him. What he needs is not the discharge of tension at any cost, but the call of a potential meaning waiting to be fulfilled by him.”

Victor Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning
