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
“When someone you love dies, and you’re not expecting it, you don’t lose her all at once; you lose her in pieces over a long time — the way the mail stops coming, and her scent fades from the pillows and even from the clothes in her closet and drawers.”
—John Irving, A Prayer for Owen Meany
Kissing. And more kissing. And more. And more. That’s how to make her smile. There’s actually scientific evidence on this. Google it.
Don’t you sometimes wish you could read one that starts like this. So simple, so apt to draw you in enough that you will delve in far enough to find the scare or the mystery.

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.
