The Epic of Gilgamesh

What does the author mean when he says on page 47, “It was unbearable, and yet it had to be borne. That was the paradox. Unbearable, and yet it had to be borne.” How does this relate to a specific theme in this novel?

I need help.

I'm sorry, which version of Beowulf are you using in your class? I am unable to find the quote in question.
