WOW..This was the book that helped me through a very tough period.

"When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves."

"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."

This is also the reason why "Shawshank redemption" is my favorite movie. Very similar concepts.
