Man’s search for meaning

In his book, Man’s Search for Meaning, Victor Frankl wrote that the “loss of hope and courage can have a deadly effect on man.” Winston Churchill is recorded as experiencing this sense of dimmed vision when he said, “I am an old man. I have lived a long time. I have never seen days like these. I am tired of it all. I see no hope for the future. Our problems are beyond us.” Churchill was overcome with despair and had lost the confidence he once had which helped to attain victory in World War II. His goal had been completed and was not replaced with another. His despair was due to the fact that he had nothing to look forward to!
