Best Viktor E. Frankl Quotes
Here are some of the best Viktor E. Frankl of all time...
"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."- Viktor E. Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning
"Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way... It is this spiritual freedom – which cannot be taken away – that makes life meaningful and purposeful."- Viktor E. Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning
"Progressive automation will probably lead to an enormous increase in the leisure hours available to the average worker. The pity of it is that many of these will not know what to do with all their newly acquired free time."- Viktor E. Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning
"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."- Viktor E. Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning
"We can discover the meaning of life in three different ways: (1) by creating a work or doing a deed; (2) by experiencing something or encountering someone; and (3) by the attitude we take toward unavoidable suffering."- Viktor E. Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning
"The pessimist resembles a man who observes with fear and sadness that his wall calendar, from which he daily tears a sheet, grows thinner with each passing day. On the other hand, the person who attacks the problems of life actively is like a man who removes each successive leaf from his calendar and files it neatly and carefully away with its predecessors, after first having jotted down a few diary notes on the back."- Viktor E. Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning
