The Inspirational Words of Viktor Frankl
Published by Compiled by Jennifer B. Chu

(From Man’s Search for Meaning (1985) and The Doctor and the Soul (1986)


Love goes very far beyond the physical person of the beloved. It finds its deepest meaning in its spiritual being, his inner self. Whether or not he is actually present, whether or not he is still alive at all. (1985, p. 58)

If there is a meaning in life at all, then there must be a meaning in suffering. (1985, p. 88)

The way they bore their suffering was a genuine inner achievement. It is this spiritual freedom—which cannot be taken away—that makes life meaningful and purposeful.(1985, p. 87)

This intensification of inner life helped the prisoner find a refuge from the emptiness, desolation and spiritual poverty of his existence.(1985, p. 59)

What is to give light must endure burning. (1985, p. 86)

“Et lux in tenebris lucet”—and the light shineth in the darkness. (1985, p. 60)

A man does have a choice of action. There were enough examples, often of a heroic nature, which proved that apathy could be overcome, irritability suppressed. Man can preserve a vestige of spiritual freedom, of independence of mind, even in such terrible conditions of psychic and physical stress. (1985, p. 86)

Man does not simply exist, but always decides what his existence will be, what he will become in the next moment. (1985, p. 154)

It is not freedom from conditions, but it is freedom to take a stand toward the conditions. (1985, p. 153)
