“Dr. Sherwin Nuland died this week at the age of 83. He became well-known for his first book, How We Die, which won the National Book Award. For him, pondering death was a way of wondering at life — and the infinite variety of processes that maintain human life moment to moment. He reflects on the meaning of life by way of scrupulous and elegant detail about human physiology.”
I think…as a human being, Sherwin was somebody who honestly “got it”. Where it comes to the question of “meaning in life”…or what each of us needs in life…he was very wise.
