In fact, the narrator states that his voyeurism “could (…) have been mistaken for the fevered concentration of a Peeping Tom,” but “that wasn’t [his] fault, that wasn’t the idea” (Woolrich 1).

Meaning that, had the narrator not been injured he probably would not have partaken in voyeurism habits. Through his perspective, it was only his way of passing time and feeling sane. Even though he is invading and intruding into other people’s lives, the gratification he gets will only be temporarily and more than likely will stop once his injury is healed and he is allowed to be part and interact with society

Frankl states, “Man’s search for meaning is the primary motivation in his life … This meaning is unique and specific in that it must be fulfilled by him alone; only then does it achieve a significance which will satisfy his own will to meaning” (99). This meaning has to have personal significance. Often, we find meaning in our ideals and values since we can control our world inside of us. You cannot control what happens in your life, but you can control how you respond to the situations you are in. Meaning is unique and specific to the individual because it differs from person to person and from moment to moment.
Vaulting Ambition in Macbeth “I have no spur / To prick the sides of my intent, but only / Vaulting ambition, which o 'erleaps itself, / And falls on th’other. . .”.
