Gilgamesh, where art thou?

Just started reading Kubler-Ross' Death: The Final Stage of Growth. A few tidbits to share...

"Victor Frankl has written: 'Let us now consider what we can do if a patient asks what is the meaning of his life. I doubt whether a doctor can answer this question in general terms. For the meaning of life differs from man to man, from day to day, from hour to hour. What matters therefore, is not the meaning of life in general, but rather the specific meaning of a person's life at a given moment.'" (xvii)

"The highest spiritual values of life can originate from the thought and study of death." (1)
