    What always impressed me about Viktor Frankl, even from when I first discovered him at age 16 in his book Man's Search For Meaning, is that no one has a better reason, right, and history for statements like this, born as they were in Auschwitz with the constant threat of death at any moment hanging over his head for years even after most of his family had already been killed.

    See: Dr. Viktor E. Frankl of Vienna, Psychiatrist of the Search for Meaning, Dies at 92 - The New York Times

    He was a shining testament to the true power of the human spirit.
