    and the reason I'm an existential psychologist.

    Favorite quote, "the best of us did not survive."

    Cats are better than therapy, and I'm a therapist.

      everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.
      and this is very mahayana buddhist:
      Suffering is an ineradicable part of life, even as fate and death. Without suffering and death human life cannot be complete.
      provisional existence of unknown limit
      and a very taoist/deconstructivist response to camus:
      This ultimate meaning necessarily exceeds and surpasses the finite intellectual capacities of man; in logotherapy we speak in this context of a super-meaning. What is demanded of man is not, as some existential philosophers teach, to endure the meaninglessness of life, but rather to bear his incapacity to grasp its unconditional meaningfulness in rational terms. Logos is deeper than logic.

      The cold passion for truth hunts in no pack. -Robinson Jeffers
