"... Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather he must recognise that it is he who is asked... Each man is questioned by life; & he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible. Thus... responsibleness (is) the very essence of human existence...

This emphasis on responsibleness is reflected in... 'Live as if you were living already for the second time & as if you had acted the first time as wrongly as you are about to act now!'..."

~ Dr Viktor Frankl, famed Austrian psychiatrist & holocaust survivor & author of the classic, 'Man's Search for Meaning';
