All by Anne Frank
"And finally I twist my heart round again, so that the bad is on the outside and the good is on the inside, and keep on trying to find a way of becoming what I would so like to be, and could be, if there weren't any other people living in the world."
"Everyone has inside of him a piece of good news. The good news is that you don't know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is!"
"How true Daddy's words were when he said: all children must look after their own upbringing. Parents can only give good advice or put them on the right paths, but the final forming of a person's character lies in their own hands."
"I don't think of all the misery but of the beauty that still remains."
"I keep my ideals, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart."
"I must uphold my ideals, for perhaps the time will come when I shall be able to carry them out."
"I simply can't build my hopes on a foundation of confusion, misery and death... I think... peace and tranquillity will return again."
"I soothe my conscience now with the thought that it is better for hard words to be on paper than that Mummy should carry them in her heart."
"If I read a book that impresses me, I have to take myself firmly by the hand, before I mix with other people; otherwise they would think my mind rather queer."
"Is discord going to show itself while we are still fighting, is the Jew once again worth less than another? Oh, it is sad, very sad, that once more, for the umpteenth time, the old truth is confirmed: "What one Christian does is his own responsibility, what one Jew does is thrown back at all Jews."
"It's really a wonder that I haven't dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart."
"We all live with the objective of being happy; our lives are all different and yet the same."
"Who would ever think that so much went on in the soul of a young girl?"
"Whoever is happy will make others happy too."
