What We Can Learn from a 108-Year Survivor of a Nazi Concentration Camp

Just came across this powerful 12 minute video about Alice Herz Summer a 108- year-old survivor of a Nazi Concentration Camp.  Her positive outlook is what helped her survive.

Alice Herz Summer Quotes from the Video

  • Complaining doesn't change things or people. 
  • Be grateful for everything in your life.
  • Learn from your mistakes. Learn from the bad and focus on the good. That's the way the life works. That is the essence of optimism.
  • Smile a lot.
  • Hatred eats the soul of the hater not the hated.
  • Everything is a present.

I once read this quote that totally agrees with what Alice says.

 "We live our lives looking forward,
but we make sense of our lives by looking backward."
