Another quote I stumbled across from the preface of Frankl’s book. This sort of thinking resonates with the idea of cruciformity, yet from a non-Christian perspective. Really fascinating to me to consider.

“…success, like, happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side-effect of one’s personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one’s surrender to a person other than oneself.” — Gordon Allport, in the Preface to Viktor Frankel, Man’s Search for Meaning, p. 12 (1984).
