Quote from Yalom

"I believe that the sense of potency that flows from understanding occurs even in the matter of our basic existential situation: each of us feels less futile, less helpless, and less alone, even when, ironically, what we come to understand is the fact that each of us is basically helpless and alone in the face of cosmic indifference."

(p250 The Yalom Reader, Irvin D Yalom, 1998)
