A Quote by Viktor E. Frankl on brothers, camping, children, commitment, destruction, existence, family, fatherhood, hunger, life, losing, love, meaning, memory, motherhood, possessions, sister, suffering, suicide, talent, time, value, wives, and worth

Allport, Gordon W., in his preface to Man's Search for Meaning: "WHY DO YOU NOT COMMIT SUICIDE?" Dr. Frankl asks his patients. . . . in one life there is love for one's children to tie to; in another life, a talent to be used; in a third, perhaps only lingering memories worth preserving. . . . As a long-time prisoner in bestial concentration camps he [Viktor Frankl] found himself stripped to naked existence. His father, mother, brother, and his wife died in camps or were sent to gas ovens, so that, excepting for his sister, his entire family perished in these camps. How could he - every possession lost, every value destroyed, suffering from hunger, cold and brutality, hourly expecting extermination - how could he find life worth preserving?

Viktor Frankl (1905 - 1997)

A Quote by Thomas S. Monson on church, good, life, presidency, prophets, sister, spirit, and wives

When called to the Council of the Twelve, October 4, 1963, he said in the Salt Lake Tabernacle: I think of a little sister, a French-Canadian sister, whose life was changed by the missionaries as her spirit was touched. As she said good-by to me and my wife in Quebec, she said, "President Monson, I may never see the Prophet. I may never hear the Prophet. But President, far better, now that I am a member of this Church, I can obey the Prophet."

Thomas S. Monson (1927 -)

A Quote by Susan Stafford on blindness, clarity, college, jesus, joy, mind, peace, sacred, serenity, sister, spirit, suffering, understanding, and work

While doing relief work in India I met Abdul. He was old, crippled and blind. He had been a college professor and spoke perfect English. His mind was sharp and clear, and he taught me much about India. Near the end of my stay I asked, "Abdul, what could I pray for - for you?" A smile illuminated his face, and he sighed, "Sister ... I don't know ... I have everything. I stood dumbfounded. This poor man, suffering terrible disfigurement, had everything? Then in his beautific smile I saw his joy, his serenity, his sacred calm. And I knew what Jesus meant when he told us, "Blessed are the poor in spirit." For, wanting nothing, Abdul had that peace which passes all understanding.
