A thought about society

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much. We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced or values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We’ve learned how to make a living but not a life. We’ve added years to life, not life to years.

George Carlin


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!
