It is difficult to allow acceptance that a little girl could grow up, and die, in Hitler’s wrath…and still think people are good.

But it is easy to accept that she knew there is both good and evil in the world. And that good could still win out even if she herself would not. 

“Despite everything, I believe that people are really good at heart.”

—Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

“Ralph wept for the end of innocence, the darkness of man’s heart, and the fall through the air of the true, wise friend called Piggy.”

—William Golding, Lord of the Flies

Sad admittance, but a very true one.

—John Irving, A Prayer for Owen Meany

It was a dark and stormy night…

…and an owl moved the still air with its sinister reminder that the night does not belong to one alone. With each step the crunch of dead leaves left a trail of bread crumbs for any predator to follow. When at last the faintest light made its way through the dense forest…

 

And you fill in the rest. I did the beginning for you. 🙂

More Austen quotatistic advice. This is to the men…when she speaks of you like this, you have her in your pocket. This book is agony in itself for you the reader. Why?…

Because from the very start you feel the pain of both lovers torn apart by listening to others (WHO WERE WRONG, by the way) getting in the way of true love. Maybe it was destiny to be apart for so long (for these two) but you as a reader will side with them till the last page.
