    Nietzsche: “He who has a Why to live for can bear almost any How.”
    Alfredo A Viviushas quoted3 years ago
    Life is not primarily a quest for pleasure, as Freud believed, or a quest for power, as Alfred Adler taught, but a quest for meaning. The greatest task for any person is to find meaning in his or her life.

    He who has a Why to live for can bear almost any How.”
    Mercelena Lemaîtrehas quoted3 years ago
    For the meaning of life differs from man to man, from day to day and from hour to hour. What matters, therefore, is not the meaning of life in general but rather the specific meaning of a person’s life at a given moment.
    Elle Carissahas quoted3 years ago
    But there was no need to be ashamed of tears, for tears bore witness that a man had the greatest of courage, the courage to suffer.
    Elle Carissahas quoted3 years ago
    He who has a why to live for can bear with almost any how,”
    Mr. Destiny 9 and 14has quoted3 years ago
    Don’t aim at success—the more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side-effect of one’s dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one’s surrender to a person other than oneself. Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success: you have to let it happen by not caring about it. I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge. Then you will live to see that in the long run—in the long run, I say!—success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think of it.

    Frankl approvingly quotes the words of Nietzsche: “He who has a Why to live for can bear almost any How.”
    Annahas quoted5 years ago
    Life is not primarily a quest for pleasure, as Freud believed, or a quest for power, as Alfred Adler taught, but a quest for meaning. The greatest task for any person is to find meaning in his or her life. Frankl saw three possible sources for meaning: in work (doing something significant), in love (caring for another person), and in courage during diffcult times.

    Kirill Danchenkohas quoted8 years ago
    Even though conditions such as lack of sleep, insuffcient food and various mental stresses may suggest that the inmates were bound to react in certain ways, in the final analysis it becomes clear that the sort of person the prisoner became was the result of an inner decision, and not the result of camp influences alone.
    Kirill Danchenkohas quoted8 years ago
    An abnormal reaction to an abnormal situation is normal behavior.
    SeiraL~has quoted14 days ago
    Forces beyond your control can take away everything you possess except one thing, your freedom to choose how you will respond to the situation. You cannot control what happens to you in life, but you can always control what you will feel and do about what happens to you.
    SeiraL~has quoted14 days ago
    Suffering in and of itself is meaningless; we give our suffering meaning by the way in which we respond to it.
    SeiraL~has quoted14 days ago
    At one point, Frankl writes that a person “may remain brave, dignified and unselfish, or in the bitter fight for self-preservation he may forget his human dignity and become no more than an animal.”
    SeiraL~has quoted14 days ago
    Life is not primarily a quest for pleasure, as Freud believed, or a quest for power, as Alfred Adler taught, but a quest for meaning. The greatest task for any person is to find meaning in his or her life.
    SeiraL~has quoted14 days ago
    Typically, if a book has one passage, one idea with the power to change a person’s life, that alone justifies reading it, rereading it, and finding room for it on one’s shelves.
