Inspirational words from a strong man

Quote

Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.

Viktor E. Frankl

Choice

Between stimulut and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.

About the meaning of life

Man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather must recognize that it is he who is asked.

Viktor Frankl

You give meaning to your life, nobody else can.

You decide what is of importance and what keeps you motivated.

You choose your way!

We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms – to choose one’s attiturde in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.
Viktor Frankl

Wow, powerful!

I don’t know any quote or example that shows the importance of this fact in a more clear way. YOU decide who you are and it is not at all depending on outer circumstances.

So use this possibility to make the best out of yourself and stop blaming anything but you for your character!
