Quote of the Day: Václav Havel on Meaning and Duty

“Man is in fact nailed down — like Christ on the Cross — to a grid of paradoxes…. He balances between the torment of not knowing his mission and the joy of carrying it out, between nothingness and meaningfulness. And like Christ, he is in fact victorious by virtue of his defeats.” – Václav Havel
