It must be awful to feel you're not needed. Anne Frank

Some suggestions for you :

It's easier to whisper your feelings than to trumpet them forth out loud.

Real slum kids with runny noses.

Unless you write yourself, you can't know how wonderful it is; I always used to bemoan the fact that I couldn't draw, but now I'm overjoyed that at least I can write. And if I don't have the talent to write books or newspaper articles, I can always write for myself. But I want to achieve more than that.

I could spend hours telling you about the suffering the war has brought, but I'd only make myself more miserable.

One gets on better in life if one is not over modest.

We have the opportunity to get an education and make something of ourselves. We have many reasons to hope for great happiness, but we have to earn it. And that is something you can't achieve by taking the easy ways out. Earning happiness means doing good and working, not speculating and being lazy.

Dead people receive more flowers than the living ones because regret is stronger than gratitude.

Why are millions spent on the war each day, while not a penny is available for medical science, artists or the poor? Why do people have to starve when mountains of food are rotting away in other parts of the world? Oh, why are people so crazy? I.

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.

And whoever is happy will make others happy too. He who has courage and faith will never perish in misery!

Kitty, The Secret Annexe.

Generally speaking, men are held in great esteem in all parts of the world, so why shouldn't women have their share? Soldiers and war heroes are honored and commemorated, explorers are granted immortal fame, martyrs are revered, but how many people look upon women too as soldiers?

Deep down I know I could never be that innocent again, however much I'd like to be.
