Viktor Frankl Quotes – 21 of his BEST!!

Compiled by Dean Lindsay

“As friend, colleague and assistant to Dr. Viktor Frankl for over twenty years, I can confidently share with you that Dean Lindsay gets it!  His ability to integrate the inspirational theories of Dr. Viktor Frankl with contemporary business needs is extraordinary.  Dean’s application of Frankl’s concepts of “freedom of choice” and “the defiant power of the human spirit” to modern business/sales is powerfully motivating.  Progress Leadership goes beyond telling us to “just do it” and, in a very readable way, tells us how to do it – or, in Dean’s words, how to be progress.  A must read for business success!”
 – Jay I. Levinson, Ph.D.
Former Special Assistant to Dr. Viktor Frank

Viktor Frankl quotes # 13

“For 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.” – Dr. Viktor Frankl

 Viktor Frankl quotes # 14

 “A man who becomes conscious of the responsibility he bears toward a human being who affectionately waits for him, or to an unfinished work, will never be able to throw away his life. He knows the “why” for his existence, and will be able to bear almost any “how.”” – Dr. Viktor Frankl

 Viktor Frankl quotes # 15

 “Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life… Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated. Thus, everyone’s task is as unique as is his specific opportunity to implement it.” – Dr. Viktor Frankl

 Viktor Frankl quotes # 16

 “The existential vacuum manifests itself mainly in a state of boredom.” –  Dr. Viktor Frankl

Viktor Frankl quotes # 17

 “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.” – Dr. Viktor Frankl

 Viktor Frankl quotes # 18

 “We must never forget that we may also find meaning in life even when confronted with a hopeless situation, when facing a fate that cannot be changed. For what then matters is to bear witness to the uniquely human potential at its best, which is to transform a personal tragedy into a triumph, to turn one’s predicament into a human achievement. When we are no longer able to change a situation–just think of an incurable disease such as inoperable cancer–we are challenged to change ourselves.” – Dr. Viktor Frankl

 Viktor Frankl quotes # 19

 “Life can be pulled by goals just as surely as it can be pushed by drives.” – Dr. Viktor Frankl

Viktor Frankl quotes # 20
 “The last of the human freedoms is to choose one’s attitudes” – Dr. Viktor Frankl

Viktor Frankl quotes # 21

 “Ever more people today have the means to live, but no meaning to live for.” – Dr. Viktor Frankl

 Be Progress.
