We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms– to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way. Viktor Frankl
Every material comfort can be taken away. You can be left with nothing– or worse than nothing. And yet you still have your mind and your heart. And through these you give meaning to your life. You choose how to think about and respond to your circumstances. You can choose to be generous with what you have left to give– even if that is only smile or a kind word.
What remains of you, when everything else is gone, is your ability to give.
