“The fruit of empty hopes is more bitter than the saddest truth.”
Angel Wagenstein, Isaac's Torah

“I don't know why people are so shy about expressing openly in front of the world their longing for each other, the most powerful and tender natural attraction, but they pretend to be proud or indifferent and they don't consider, especially if they're young, that the sands of our life have been measured by God unto the last grain and that every carelessly wasted second of love sinks irreversibly into eternity.”
Angel Wagenstein, Isaac's Torah

“Me da vergüenza reconocerlo, pero compartí la adquisición únicamente con el rabino. Lo cortamos todo en trocitos que escondimos en los bolsillos, bajo las esteras y donde pudimos, y los comimos migaja a migaja, con excepción de lo que se llevaron las ratas que abundaban en el campo. A diferencia del mundo de afuera, donde los seres humanos vivían en sociedad y morían en soledad, allí moríamos colectivamente, pero cada uno sobrevivía por su cuenta. Es tremendo reconocer que lo mismo era válido tanto para la gente como para las ratas.”
Angel Wagenstein
