Thought for the day… On Ubuntu, Compassion & Humanity


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, author, neurologist and psychiatrist,
Holocaust survivor (26 Mar 1905-1997)

As South Africa sees “Ubuntu” in word and practice :
The belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity.
Essential human  virtues, compassion and humanity

  1. Lovely post and message, Kavitha. Thank you for sharing. I know if I begin the day with a bad attitude, that negative mentality will stick with me like super glue for the rest of the day. It’s not always easy to shift the mindset, but it sure is worth it. 🌼

    • I will tell you that the month of May has been rather disastrous for me. A rather battered mindset.
      Daily, I remind myself to think positively. Especially knowing that my mood impacts on the family.
      Hopefully June ushers in joy and jubilance.
      Big hugs,
