Viktor E. Frankl Quotes and Sayings

I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Viktor E. Frankl from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

who walked through the huts comforting others,
giving away their last piece of bread...
They offer sufficient proof that everything
can be taken from a man but one thing:
to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances,
to choose one's own way.

in the currentness of life experiences
and not relegated to the past in which they once lived.
