A Quote by Viktor E. Frankl on behavior, boredom, camping, certainty, circumstances, clarity, death, decisions, dignity, facts, food, freedom, losing, sleep, and suffering

Even though conditions such as lack of sleep, insufficient food and various mental stresses may suggest that the inmates were bound to react in certain ways, in the final analysis it becomes clear that the sort of person the prisoner became was the result of an inner decision, and not the result of camp influences alone. Fundamentally, therefore, any man can, even under such circumstances, decide what shall become of him - mentally and spiritually. He may retain his human dignity even in a concentration camp. I became acquainted with those martyrs whose behavior in camp, whose suffering and death, bore witness to the fact that the last inner freedom cannot be lost.

Viktor Frankl (1905 - 1997)

A Quote by Rollo May on cats, choice, commitment, courage, day, decisions, dignity, growth, instinct, nature, people, women, and worth

The acorn becomes an oak by means of automatic growth; no commitment is necessary. The kitten similarly becomes a cat on the basis of instinct. Nature and being are identical in creatures like them. But a man or woman becomes fully human only by his or her choices and his or her commitment to them. People attain worth and dignity by the multitude of decisions they make from day by day. These decisions require courage.

Rollo May (1909 -)

A Quote by Roger Pritchard on community, compassion, dignity, empowerment, good, honesty, life, love, philosophy, skill, work, and world

Good work is dignified. It develops your faculties and serves your community. It is a central human activity. Work, in this view: makes you honest with yourself, requires that you develop your faculties and skills, empowers you to do what you are really good at and love to do, connects you in a compassionate way with the outside world, supports the philosophy of non-destructiveness and sustainability, and integrates work with personal life and community.
