“When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves.”
– Victor Frankl
Neurologist and psychiatrist; founder of Logotherapy and Existential Analysis, here’s another one of Victor Frankl’s quotes:
“Between stimulus 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.”
On October 19, 1944, Frankl, with his wife, Tilly, was transported to the Auschwitz concentration camp. His best-selling book, Man’s Search for Meaning, chronicles his experiences as a concentration camp inmate which led him to discover the importance of finding meaning in all forms of existence, even the most sordid ones, and thus a reason to continue living.
