Frankl on how experiences can give our life meaning

‘Let us ask a mountain-climber who has beheld the alpine sunset and is so moved by the splendour of nature that he feels cold shudders running down his spine - let us ask him whether after such an experience his life can ever again seem wholly meaningless’
Viktor Frankl (The Doctor and the Soul)

Frankl on the importance of humour

‘The attempt to develop a sense of humour and to see things in a humorous light is some kind of a trick learnt while mastering the art of living’
(Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning)
