“What man actually needs is not a tensionless state but rather the striving and struggling for some goal worthy of him. What he needs is not the discharge of tension at any cost, but the call of a potential meaning waiting to be fulfilled by him.” – Viktor Frankl

- “In this age of hyper abundance, over-indulgence, pleasure, and addiction, confidence will come from understanding in managing your dopamine.”
- “We live in an era of consumption and compulsion, and we have to embrace that. All of us are pleasure addicted.”
- “If we don’t understand addiction, and we don’t understand where it comes from, if we don’t understand how to leverage that as a force for good and avoid it as a force of evil, then we lose this chess match of addiction.”
- “We are our addictions. Our patterns of thought, our patterns of behavior, and what we typically call personality is simply an addiction.”
- “Pleasure inevitably leads to pain. And so we have to be okay with lows after our wins. It’s just part of the process.”
