Fane Flaws and cinematographer Alun Bollinger’s video was shot over a night at Auckland Art Gallery…

Viktor Frankl (1905 –1997), Austrian neurologist, psychiatrist, and Holocaust survivor. His book, Man's Search for Meaning, chronicles his experiences as a concentration camp inmate which led him to discover the importance of finding meaning in all forms of existence, even the most sordid ones, and thus a reason to continue living. Frankl became one of the key figures in existential therapy and a prominent source of inspiration for humanistic psychologists.

Viktor Frankl on the Art of Presence, the Soul-Stretching Capacity of Suffering, and How to Persevere in Troubled Times

Counseling - Viktor Emil Frankl, MD, PhD March 1905 – 2 September was an Austrian neurologist and psychiatrist as well as a Holocaust survivor.

Benjamin Franklin's 13 Virtues picked off of Gretchen Rubins Happiness Pages. I love that he only focused on one a week instead of trying to live perfect
