#1. Yes... hornbeam and dragon heartstring?" he shot at Krum, who nodded. "Rather thicker than one usually sees... quite rigid... ten and a quarter inches... Avis!"
The hornbeam wand let off a blast like a gun, and a number of small, twittering birds flew out of the end and through the open window into the watery sunlight. - Author: J.K. Rowling
Viktor Krum quotes by J.K. Rowling
#2. Who're you writing the novel to anyway?" Ron asked Hermione, trying to read the bit of parchment now trailing on the floor. Hermione hitched it up out of sight.
"Viktor."
"Krum?"
"How many other Viktors do we know?"
Ron said nothing, but looked disgruntled. They sat in silence for another twenty minutes, Ron finishing his Transfiguration essay with many snorts of impatience, rolling in up carefully and sealing it, and Harry staring into the fire, wishing more than anything that Sirius's head would appear there and give him some advice about girls. But the fire merely crackled lower and lower, until the red-hot embers crumbled into ash and, looking around, Harry saw that they were, yet again, the last in the common room.
"Well, 'night," said Hermione, yawning widely, and she set off up the girls' staircase.
"What does she see in Krum?" Ron demanded as he and Harry climbed the boys' stairs.
"Well," said Harry, considering the matter, "I s'pose he's older, isn't he...and he's an international Quidditch player...."
"Yeah, but apart from that," said Ron, sounding aggravated. "I mean he's a grouchy git, isn't he? - Author: J.K. Rowling
Viktor Krum quotes by J.K. Rowling
#3. You can do all sorts of stuff that full-grown wizards can't, Viktor always said
"
Ron looked around at her so fast he appeared to crick his neck; rubbing it, he said, "Yeah? What did Vicky say?"
"Ho ho," said Hermione in a bored voice. "He said Harry knew how to do stuff even he didn't, and he was in the final year at Durmstrang."
Ron was looking at Hermione suspiciously.
"You're not still in contact with him are you?"
"So what if I am?" said Hermione coolly, though her face was a little pink. "I can have a pen pal if I
"
"He didn't only want to be your pen pal," said Ron accusingly.
Hermione shook her head exasperatedly and ignored Ron, who was continuing to watch her. - Author: J.K. Rowling
Viktor Krum quotes by J.K. Rowling
#4. Either belief in God is unconditional or it is no belief at all. - Author: Viktor E. Frankl
Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#5. The majority believes that everything hard to comprehend must be very profound. This is incorrect. What is hard to understand is what is immature, unclear and often false. The highest wisdom is simple and passes through the brain directly into the heart - Author: Viktor Schauberger
Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor Schauberger
#6. Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather must recognize that it is he who is asked. In a word, each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible. - Author: Viktor E. Frankl
Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#7. Once an individual's search for meaning is successful, it not only renders him happy but also gives him the capability to cope with suffering - Author: Viktor E. Frankl
Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor E. Frankl

Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#12. If you call 'religious' a man who believes in what I call a Supermeaning, a meaning so comprehensive that you can no longer grasp it, get hold of it in rational intellectual terminology, then one should feel free to call me religious, really. - Author: Viktor E. Frankl
Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#13. Though it may afford momentary psychological relief, it is an illusion which physiologically, surely, must not be without danger. - Author: Viktor E. Frankl
Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#14. Just consider a child who, absorbed in play, forgets himself - this is the moment to take a snapshot; when you wait until he notices that you are taking a picture, his face congeals and freezes, showing his unnatural self-consciousness rather than his natural graciousness. Why do most people have that stereotyped expression on their faces whenever they are photographed? This expression stems from their concern with the impression they are going to leave on the onlooker. It is "cheese" that makes them so ugly. Forgetting themselves, the photographer, and the future onlooker would make them beautiful. - Author: Viktor E. Frankl
Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#15. The only positive contribution to chess from Fischer in the last 20 years. - Author: Viktor Korchnoi
Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor Korchnoi
#16. God is the partner of our most intimate soliloquies. That is to say, whenever you are talking to yourself in utmost sincerity and ultimate solitude--he to whom you are addressing yourself may justifiably be called God. - Author: Viktor E. Frankl
Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#17. Our main motivation for living is our will to find meaning in life. - Author: Viktor E. Frankl
Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#18. Mankind was apparently doomed to vacillate between the two extremities of distress and boredom." ~Schopenhauer. In actual fact, boredom is now causing more problems to solve that distress. And these problems are growing increasingly crucial, for progressive automation will probably lead to an enormous increase in the leisure hours available to the average worker. The pity of it is that many of these will not know what to do with all their newly acquired free time. - Author: Viktor E. Frankl
Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#19. An abnormal reaction to an abnormal situation is normal behavior. - Author: Viktor E. Frankl
Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#20. Man's search for meaning is the primary motivation in his life and not a "secondary rationalization" of instinctual drives. This meaning is unique and specific in that it must and can be fulfilled by him alone; only then does it achieve a significance which will satisfy his own will to meaning. - Author: Viktor E. Frankl
Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#21. Fundamentally, therefore, any man can, even under such circumstances, decide what shall become of him - mentally and spiritually. He may retain his human dignity even in a concentration camp. - Author: Viktor E. Frankl
Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor E. Frankl

Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor E. Frankl

Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor Yushchenko
#24. Most important, however, is the third avenue to meaning in life: even the helpless victim of a
hopeless situation, facing a fate he cannot change, may rise above himself, may grow beyond
himself, and by so doing change himself. He may turn a personal tragedy into a triumph. - Author: Viktor E. Frankl
Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#25. Can you tell me in one sentence what is meant by logotherapy?" he asked. "At least, what is the difference between psychoanalysis and logotherapy?" "Yes," I said, "but in the first place, can you tell me in one sentence what you think the essence of psychoanalysis is?" This was his answer: "During psychoanalysis, the patient must lie down on a couch and tell you things which sometimes are very disagreeable to tell." Whereupon I immediately retorted with the following improvisation: "Now, in logotherapy the patient may remain sitting erect but he must hear things which sometimes are very disagreeable to hear. - Author: Viktor E. Frankl
Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#26. I answered that as a neurologist and a psychiatrist, of course, I am fully aware of the extent to which man is not at all free from conditions. But I added that along with being a professor in two fields (neurology and psychiatry) I am a survivor of four camps (that is, concentration camps), and as such I also bear witness to the unexpected extent to which man is, and always remains, capable of resisting and braving even the worst conditions. To detach oneself from even the worst conditions is a uniquely human capability. [...] By virtue of this capacity man is capable of detaching himself not only from a situation but also from himself. He is capable of choosing his attitude toward himself. By doing so he really takes a stand toward his own somatic and psychic conditions and determinants. Understandably this is a crucial issue for psychotherapy and psychiatry, education and religion. For, seen in this light, a person is free to shape his own character, and man is responsible for what he may have made out of himself. - Author: Viktor E. Frankl
Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#27. Nas looked at Vik from across the room, and when he felt her eyes on him and lifted his head, she lowered her glance. It wasn't the first time in the past two weeks that I saw them do this. It also didn't escape Lev's notice that Viktor had stopped coming around. They hadn't spoke in that time.
Something had happened between them, and Nas was not opening up, probably because it was still too painful to talk about.
All I knew was that Nas was miserable and Vik had developed the temper of a T-Rex with itchy balls.
Relationships were collapsing around us, but Lev and I were going stronger than ever. - Author: Belle Aurora
Viktor Krum quotes by Belle Aurora
#28. Is that theory true which would have us believe that man is no more than a product of many conditional and environmental factors - - Author: Viktor E. Frankl
Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#29. The struggle for existence is a struggle 'for' something; it is purposeful and only in so being is it meaningful and able to bring meaning into life. - Author: Viktor E. Frankl
Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#30. Someone sent me a letter that had one of the best quotes I've ever read. It said "What is to give light must endure burning." It's by a writer named Viktor Frankl. I've been turning that quote over and over in my head. The truth of it is absolutely awe-inspiring. In the end, I believe it's why we all suffer. It's the meaning we all look for behind the tragedies in our lives. The pain deepens us, burns away our impurities and petty selfishness. It makes us capable of empathy and sympathy. It makes us capable of love. The pain is the fire that allows us to rise from the ashes of what we were, and more fully realize what we can become. When you can step back and see the beauty of the process, it's amazing beyond words. - Author: Damien Echols
Viktor Krum quotes by Damien Echols
#31. Apathy, the blunting of the emotions and the feeling that one could not care any more, were the symptoms arising during the second stage of the prisoner's psychological reactions, and which eventually made him insensitive to daily and hourly beatings. By means of this insensibility the prisoner soon surrounded himself with a very necessary protective shell. - Author: Viktor E. Frankl
Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#32. For tears bore witness that a man had the greatest of courage, the courage to suffer. Only - Author: Viktor E. Frankl
Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#33. I have never allowed anti-Russian rhetoric in Ukrainian policy toward such a strategic partner like Russia. This is the first point. I never went against the interests of the Ukrainian state and the Ukrainian people. - Author: Viktor Yanukovych
Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor Yanukovych
#34. I remain committed to a balanced policy, which will protect our national interests both on our eastern border - I mean with Russia - and of course with the European Union. - Author: Viktor Yanukovych
Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor Yanukovych
#35. I would say that our patients never really despair because of any suffering in itself! Instead, their despair stems in each instance from a doubt as to whether suffering is meaningful. Man is ready and willing to shoulder any suffering as soon and as long as he can see a meaning in it. - Author: Viktor E. Frankl
Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#36. Not about cruelty or pain, but about the insult connected with it. That - Author: Viktor E. Frankl
Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#37. Viktor was swinging a leather duffle and wearing a black Adidas tracksuit and his favorite brown UGG slippers with a hole in the toe.
"Worn and old, just like Viv," he'd say when Frankie made fun of them, and then his wife would swat him on the arm. But Frankie knew he was just joking, because Viveka was the type of woman you wished was in a magazine just so you could stare at her violet-colored eyes and shiny black hair without being called a stalker or a freak. - Author: Lisi Harrison
Viktor Krum quotes by Lisi Harrison
#38. You don't create your mission in life - you detect it. - Author: Viktor E. Frankl
Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#39. The prisoner of Auschwitz, in the first phase of shock, did not fear death. Even the gas chambers lost their horrors for him after the first few days - after all, they spared him the act of committing suicide. - Author: Viktor E. Frankl
Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#40. If hundreds of thousands of people reach out for a book whose very title promises to deal with the question of a meaning to life, it must be a question that burns under their fingernails. - Author: Viktor E. Frankl
Viktor Krum quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#41. Psychiatrist and Auschwitz survivor, Viktor Frankl, stated, ... man is by no means merely a product of heredity and environment. There is a third element: decision. Man ultimately decides for himself! - Author: Alice A. Kemp
Viktor Krum quotes by Alice A. Kemp
#42. What I had done was nothing so extraordinary. I had simply taken [the prisoners] as human beings and not mistaken them for mechanisms to repair. I had interpreted them in the same way they had interpreted themselves all along, that is to say, as free and responsible. I had not offered them a cheap escape from guilt feelings by conceiving of them as victims of biological, psychological, or sociological conditioning processes. Nor had I taken them as helpless pawns on the battleground of id, ego, and superego. - Author: Viktor E. Frankl
