Some suggestions for you :

I know what I want, I have a goal, I have opinions, a religion and love. If only I can be myself, I'll be satisfied.

Then I fall asleep with a stupid feeling of wishing to be different from what I am or from what I want to be; perhaps to behave differently from the way I want to behave or do behave.

I don't dare do anything anymore, 'cause I'm afraid it's not allowed.

When I write, I can shake off all my cares.

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

Whenever you're feeling lonely or sad, try going to the loft on a beautiful day and looking outside. Not at the houses and the rooftops, but at the sky. As long as you can look fearlessly at the sky, you'll know that you're pure within and will find happiness once more.

Despite everything, I believe that people are really good at heart.

Older people have formed their opinions about everything, and don't waver before they act. It's twice as hard for us young ones to hold our ground, and maintain our opinions, in a time when all ideals are being shattered and destroyed, when people are showing their worst side, and do not know whether to believe in truth and right and God.

And keep on trying to find a way of becoming what I would so like to be, and what I could be, if... there weren't any other people living in the world.

One day this terrible war will be over. The time will come when we'll be people again and not just Jews!

If the truth is told, things are just as bad as you yourself care to make them.

I have the feeling now that Peter and I share a secret. If he looks at me with those eyes that laugh and wink, then it's just as if a little light goes on inside me. I hope it will remain like this and that we may have many, many more glorious times together!

Dussel promised her the moon, but, as usual, we haven't seen so much as a beam.

Ordinary people simply don't know what books mean to us, shut up here. Reading, learning, and the radio are our amusements.
