man's search of a meaning by victor Frankel



right after my stroke I struggled with depression & I depended heavily on spiritual books & biography of inspirational people, they gave me strength to go on, when I could not find any in my own, that time I read victor frankl's mans search of a meaning & it resonated fully with me, I needed purpose bigger than myself to  give good fight to stroke & that I found in my 7 year old son. some of the quotes of victor frankl which resonated with me I am noting it here so that I can also come back & refer to

1. Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lied our growth and freedom.


2. when we are no longer able ro change a situation - we are challenged to change ourselves

3. Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of human freedoms- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.


4. “Those who have a ‘why’ to live, can bear with almost any ‘how’.

5. “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 personal dedication to a cause greater.”

6. In some ways suffering ceases to be suffering at the moment it finds a meaning, such as the meaning of a sacrifice.

7. “Love is the only way to grasp another human being in the innermost core of his personality.”



I know for me  all these worked till I found my inner strength through these great authors

Some amazing quotes there, Asha.


One of my favourite quotes (my signature) is:


I am where I need to be today.


That's from our very own Tracy. 


I remind myself often of this.
