day 17 : a book you’ve read that changed your views on something
I first read The Diary of Anne Frank in 5th grade, and it has always stuck with me. If I ever feel down about my situation, or start wallowing in my own petty misery, I try to remember Anne Frank. She saw the ugliest side of human nature, and experienced the most horrible examples of mistreatment, and yet she still found a way to be happy, and see the beauty in life.
These are some of my favorite Anne Frank quotes:
Despite everything, I believe that people are really good at heart.
How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world. I don't think of all the misery but of the beauty that still remains.
I simply can't build my hopes on a foundation of confusion, misery and death... I think... peace and tranquility will return again.
Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.
