We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men
by Viktor E. Frankl

We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men
who walked through the huts comforting others,
giving away their last piece of bread...

can be taken from a man but one thing:
to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances,
to choose one's own way.
- Viktor E. Frankl

What matters, therefore, is not the meaning of life

- Viktor E. Frankl

"I realized I was looking at you,
in your visit, through old glasses.
Speaking old words.
Telling old stories.
I realize that in my life I've made so many
physical changes and I need to give my spirit time to catch up."
Time for my spirit to look at my friend
through the new glasses of current life experiences.
Old friends are precious.
They become even more treasured when they are wrapped
in the currentness of life experiences
and not relegated to the past in which they once lived.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

have caviar for breakfast and oatmeal for dinner,
wear a purple coat with a red hat - dance lightly with life.
