More Quotes from Viktor E. Frankl:


Love is the only way to grasp another human being in the innermost core of his personality.
Viktor E. Frankl

The meaning of our existence is not invented by ourselves, but rather detected.
Viktor E. Frankl

Ultimate meaning necessarily exceeds and surpasses the finite intellectual capacities of man... What is demanded of man is not, as some existential philosophers teach, to endure the meaninglessness of life, but rather to bear his incapacity to grasp its unconditional meaningfulness in rational terms. Logos is deeper than logic.
Viktor E. Frankl

Here lies the chance for a man either to make use of or to forgo the opportunities of attaining the moral values that a difficult situation may afford him. And this decides whether he is worthy of his sufferings or not.
Viktor E. Frankl

We can discover this meaning in life in three different ways (1) by doing a deed (2) by experiencing a value and (3) by suffering.
Viktor E. Frankl

If there is meaning in life at all, then there must be a meaning in suffering. Suffering is an ineradicable part of life, even as fate and death. Without suffering and death human life cannot be complete.
Viktor E. Frankl
