Irvin D. Yalom

I think all kinds of meanings in life transcend your self. They’re linked to other generations of people around us, to our children and our family. We’re passing on something of ourselves to others. I feel that’s what makes our life full of meaning.

– Irvin D. Yalom

Death anxiety is the mother of all religions, which, in one way or another, attempt to temper the anguish of our finitude.


When people don’t have any curiosity about themselves, that is always a bad sign.
– Irvin D. Yalom
