The Wisdom of Anne Frank


Anne Frank (1929- 1945) was a Jewish girl who was caught up in the Second World War. From 1942 until 1944 she was in hiding in Amsterdam. During that time she wrote in a diary that was found and published after her death. In 1944, she was captured by the Nazis and taken to the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, where she died of typhus seven months later.
These quotes are from Anne Frank’s diary, which she began writing on her 13th birthday:
I keep my ideals, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart.
I don’t think of all the misery but of the beauty that still remains.
How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.
No one has ever become poor by giving.
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.
Whoever is happy will make others happy, too.
