For Day 1, I’ve chosen the topic “Hope”
In school, I was always fascinated by history and the various celebrated figures that left their mark on the world for centuries to come. And having read all about World War II, one of the most darkest periods in the history of mankind, one person whose writings stayed in my mind was Anne Frank. Thus, I am going to share her quotes today :
“It’s really a wonder that I haven’t dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.”
“Those who have courage and faith shall never perish in misery”
“Look at how a single candle can both defy and define the darkness.”
“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”
― Anne Frank
Holocaust victim and famous diarist Anne Frank was born Annelies Marie Frank on June 12, 1929, in Frankfurt, Germany, Anne Frank lived in Amsterdam with her family during World War II. Fleeing Nazi persecution of Jews, the family went into hiding for two years; during this time, Frank wrote about her experiences and wishes. She was 15 when the family was found and sent to the camps, where she died. Her work, The Diary of Anne Frank, has gone on to be read by millions.
The depth in her writing is remarkable given her age and circumstances she wrote in. She was indeed a great soul, not bound by the limitations placed upon her by this world. Her writing is a symbol of hope that will live for centuries to come. And being given this opportunity, I wanted to share her writing with all of you.
Before ending this post, I want to share a poem and quote on “Hope” by two wonderful poets.
“Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.”
― Emily Dickinson
Someday, somewhere – anywhere, unfailingly, you’ll find yourself, and that,
and only that, can be the happiest or bitterest hour of your life.”
― Pablo Neruda
