Anne Frank
“People who have a religion should be glad, for not everyone has the gift of believing in heavenly things. You don't necessarily even have to be afraid of punishment after death; purgatory, hell, and heaven are things that a lot of people can't accept, but still a religion, it doesn't matter which, keeps a person on the right path. It isn't the fear of God but the upholding of one's own honor and conscience. How noble and good everyone could be if, every evening before falling asleep, they were to recall to their minds the events of the while day and consider exactly what has been good and bad. Then, without realizing it you try to improve yourself at the start of each new day; of course, you achieve quite a lot in the course of time. Anyone can do this, it costs nothing and is certainly very helpful. Whoever doesn't know it must learn and find by experience that: "A quiet conscience mades one strong!”

“Everyone thinks I'm showing off when I talk, ridiculous when I'm silent, insolent when I answer, cunning when I have a good idea, lazy when I'm tired, selfish when I eat one bite more than I should.”

Anne Frank
“A voice within me is sobbing, "You see that's what's become of you. You're surrounded by negative opinions, dismayed looks and mocking faces, people who dislike you, and all because you don't listen to the advice of your own better half." Believe me, I'd like to listen, but it doesn't work, because if I'm quiet and serious, everyone thinks I'm putting on a new act and I have to save myself with a joke, and then I'm not even talking about my own family, who assume I must be sick, stuff me with aspirins and setatives, feel my neck and forehead to see if I have a temperature, ask about my bowel movements and berate me for being in a bad mood, until I just can't keep it up anymore, because when everybody starts hovering over me, I get cross, then sad, an finally end up turning my heart inside out, the bad part on the outside and the good part on the inside, and keep trying to find a way to become what I'd like to be and what I could be if . . . if only there were no other people in the world.

Yours, Anne M. Frank.”

John Green
“The book was turned to the page with Anne Frank's name, but what got me about it was the fact that right beneath her name there were four Aron Franks. FOUR. Four Aron Franks without museums, without historical markers, without anyone to mourn them. I silently resolved to remember and pray for the four Aron Franks as long as I was around.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

“Riches, prestige, everything can be lost. But the happiness in your heart can only be dimmed; it will always be there as long as you live, to make you happy again.
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 your pure within and will find happiness once more.”

Shalom Auslander
“...his hope was that she would finish her damn book quietly and just leave; that one morning he would awaken and go up to the attic, and Anne Frank would be gone, and he could go on with his life, Anne-free. One hundred percent Frankless. Now with Less Genocide.”

“Bana rahat vermeyen birçok sorudan bir tanesi de, geçmişte ve şimdi toplumlarda kadınların, erkeklerin gerisinde yer alması. Herkes bunun haksızlık olduğunu söyler ama bu yanıt bana yeterli gelmiyor. Ben bu büyük haksızlığın nedenlerini bilmeyi çok isterim. Belki başlangıçtan beri erkeğin büyük beden gücünden dolayı kadına hükmetmiş olduğu düşünülebilir. Parayı erkekler kazanıyor, çocukları erkekler yapıyor, erkekler her şeyi yapabiliyor... Bütün kadınların kısa bir süre öncesine kadar sessizce her şeye katlanmış olmaları büyük bir aptallıktı, çünkü ne kadar uzun çağlar bu kurallar yaşanmışsa, o kadar fazla kökleşmiş. Yine de şansımıza okul, iş ve eğitim kadınların gözlerini açmasını sağladı. Birçok ülkede kadınlara eşit haklar verildi. Birçok insan, öncelikle kadınlar, ama erkekler de şimdiye değin dünyadaki paylaşımın ne kadar yanlış olduğunu artık anlıyorlar. Modern kadınlar tam bağımsızlık hakkı istiyorlar.
Ama sadece bu değil: Kadının değeri verilmeli! Her yerde erkekler yüceltiliyor, kadınlar neden bu değerlere hiç ortak edilmiyor? Askerlere ve savaş kahramanlarına saygı gösteriliyor ve övgüler yağdırılıyor. Kaşifler ölümsüz bir şöhret elde ediyorlar, şehitlere tapılıyor. Ama kim kadını da bir savaşçı olarak görüyor?
"Hayat İçin Savaşanlar" kitabında beni çok etkileyen bir şey yazıyor, buna benzer bir şey: kadınlar sadece doğum yaparak herhangi bir savaş kahramanından daha çok acı, hastalık ve sefalet çekiyor. Ve kadın bu başarı için ne görüyor?
Doğumdan dolayı deforme ve çirkin olmuşsa bir köşeye itiliyor, bir süre sonra artık çocuklar da ona ait olmuyorlar, güzelliği de geçmiş oluyor. Kadınlar insanlığın devamını sağlamak uğruna çok acıya katlanan birçok çenesi düşük özgürlük kahramanından daha yürekli, çok daha gözüpek ve çok daha fazla savaşan askerlerdir.”

“We, who fill our stomachs with nothing but boiled lettuce, raw lettuce, spinach, spinach and more spinach. Maybe we'll end up being as strong as Popeye, though so far I've seen no sign of it!”

Anne Frank
“I lie in bed at night, after ending my prayers with the words "Ich danke dir für all das Gute und Liebe und Schöne" and I'm filled with joy. I think of going into hiding, my health and my whole being as das Gute; Peter's love (which is still so new and fragile and which neither of us dares to say aloud), the future, happiness and love as das Liebe; the world, nature and the tremendous beauty of everything, all that splendor, as das Schöne.

At such moments I don't think about all the misery, but about the beauty that still remains. This is where Mother and I differ greatly. Her advice in the face of melancholy is: "Think about all the suffering in the world and be thankful you're not part of it." My advice is: "Go outside, to the country, enjoy the sun and all nature has to offer. Go outside and try to recapture the happiness within yourself; think of all the beauty in yourself and in everything around you and be happy."

I don't think Mother's advice can be right, because what are you supposed to do if you become part of the suffering? You'd be completely lost. On the contrary, beauty remains, even in misfortune. If you just look for it, you discover more and more happiness and regain your balance. A person who's happy will make others happy; a person who has courage and faith will never die in misery!”

“As long as you can look fearlessly at the sky, you'll know that you're pure within and will find happiness once more.”
Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

Anne Frank
“This morning, when I was sitting in front of the window and taking a long, deep look outside at God and nature, I was happy, just plain happy. Peter, as long as people feel that kind of happiness within themselves, the joy of nature, health and much more besides, they'll always be able to recapture that happiness.
Riches, prestige, everything can be lost. But the happiness in your own heart can only be dimmed; it will always be there, as long as you live, to make you happy again.”
Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

Anne Frank
“The best remedy for those who are frightened, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere they can be alone, alone with the sky, nature and God. For then and only then can you feel that everything is as it should be and that God wants people to be happy amid nature's beauty and simplicity,
As long as this exists, and that should be forever, I know that there will be solace for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances. I firmly believe that nature can bring comfort to all who suffer.”
Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

Anne Frank
“I don't believe that the big men, the politicians and the capitalists alone, are guilty of the war. Oh no, the little man is just as guilty, otherwise the peoples of the world would have risen in revolt long ago! There's in people simply an urge to destroy, an urge to kill, to murder and rage, and until all mankind, without exception, undergoes a great change, great wars will be waged, everything that has been built up, cultivated, and grown will be destroyed and disfigured, after which mankind will have to begin all over again.”
Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

Anne Frank
“Time to get up time to get washed time to have lunch time to go to bed. What’s the point if I never get up again what difference would it make? I might just as well be dead. You might just as well be dead. We all just as well be dead! This isn’t living. This is…”
Anne Frank, Anna Frank

Anne Frank
“We all live but we don't know the why or the wherefore. We all live with the object of being happy, our lives are all different and yet the same. We have the chance to learn, the possibility of attaining something, we have all reason to hope for much happiness, but we must earn it for ourselves. And that is never easy. You must work and do good, not be lazy and gamble, if you wish to earn happiness. Laziness may appear attractive, but work gives satisfaction.”
Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

Anne Frank
“Ben zengin değilim, güzel değilim, akıllı değilim, zeki değilim, ama mutluyum ve mutlu olacağım! Mutlu bir doğaya sahibim, insanları seviyorum, şüpheci değilim ve kendimle birlikte herkesi mutlu görmeyi arzuluyorum.”
Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

Anne Frank
“Eğer olması gerektiği gibi yazacak kadar yetenekli değilsem, o zaman kendim için yazabilirim. Ama ben kendimi geliştirmek istiyorum. Annem gibi, Bayan van Daan ve bütün diğer kadınlar gibi, yaşamak zorunda olmayı, gündelik işini yapmayı ve sonra ileride unutulmayı hayal bile edemiyorum. Eşimin ve çocuklarımın yanı sıra, kendimi adayacağım bir hedefimin olması gerek! Ah evet, ben çoğu insan gibi boşa yaşamış olmak istemiyorum. Etrafımda yaşıyor olup beni tanımayan insanlara faydalı olmak ve mutluluk vermek istiyorum. Öldükten sonra da yaşamaya devam etmek istiyorum. Bana doğuştan, kendimi geliştirmek ve içimdekileri yazarak ifade etmek imkanı bağışladığı için Tanrı'ya şükrediyorum.”
