Snapshots & Whatnot: Meaningful Choices

Austrian author and psychiatrist Viktor Frankl (1905-1997) survived four concentration camps during the Holocaust. He knew gratuitous suffering intimately. Given chaotic challenges ever present in our world, may these insights of his encourage our hearts today.

“Between stimulus and response there is space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and freedom.” Viktor Frankl

“When we are no longer able to change our situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.” Viktor Frankl

“What is to give light must endure burning.” Viktor Frankl

“Forces beyond your control can take away everything you possess except one thing, your freedom to choose how you will respond to the situation.” Viktor Frankl

“We cannot judge a biography by its length, by the number of pages in it; we must judge by the richness of the contents… Sometimes the ‘unfinisheds’ are among the most beautiful symphonies.” Viktor Frankl

“Our greatest freedom is the freedom to choose our attitude.” Viktor Frankl

“The meaning of life is to give life meaning.” Viktor Frankl

grace, peace & meaningful choices

    Great quotes, Miss Virginia. I especially resonate to “Our greatest freedom is the freedom to choose our attitude.” Reminds me to look UP, not down; toward HOPE, not despair.

    • Virginia says:

      Amen, Debbie! It’s so easy to look down into despair with so much whacked out stuff going on these days, but looking UP is how we can move forward – toward hope! Blessings! ✨👀✨💜✨
