This book was one of the toughest books I’ve ever read. It is about a psychiatrist’s horrific experience in Nazi death camps. When I envisioned what he had gone through, I literally felt sick to my stomach. I wondered what I would’ve done in his place.
Would I have had the will to live? How could I go on if I feel like the suffering will never end?
This post is not a book summary. I just want to share a few notable quotes that caught my attention and add my views on it.
“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.”
You either learn to adapt or give up…there’s really no other option.
“Those who have a ‘why’ to live, can bear with almost any ‘how’.”
We all need that purpose or ‘why’ to keep going. Your ‘why’ may differ from mine. But without a reason, there’s no meaning. Without meaning, there’s no point. What gives your life meaning?
