Against the total and ultimate meaninglessness of life

Viktor E. Frankl on his Man’s Search for Meaning repeats this quote a few times.

On how prisoners need a aim in order to strengthen them to bear the terrible how of their existence:

He who has a why to live for can bear with almost any how.


The challenge we all face in our existence (to find a why) is the challenge of every protagonist of every story.

If a book is a hopeless prison for its hero, what is the ultimate goal that will give the hero the strength to pull through al the adversities.
