two lovely thoughts today

Monday, December 9

"Anyone who doesn't write doesn't know how wonderful it is; I used to bemoan the fact that I couldn't draw at all, but now I am more happy that I can at least write. And if I haven't any talent for writing books or newspaper articles, well, then I can always write for myself." 

"I can shake off everything if I write; my sorrows disappear, my courage is reborn. But, and that is the great question, will I ever be able to write anything great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer? I hope so, oh, I hope so very much, for I can recapture everything when I write, my thoughts, my ideals, and my fantasies."

- Anne Frank

  1. thank you for sharing :) her story is so incredible. i was the same age as her when i first read her diary and i remember how overwhelmed i was by her wise words. i couldn't believe someone my age could be that smart already. she inspired me a lot.

  2. Anne frank's diary was the first book i ever read, i think i was like 8 years old and fell in love with her at first sight, or shoukd i say,.at the first sentence.. somehow, i always felt conected with her and her thoughts...i've kept a diary ever since, i have them all locked up in a closet back home, imagine all those words and drawings since i was 8 until now...that makes a total of 19... will they ever be published? Will they ever be worthy? Will i ever be remembered as anne frank or anais nin for their.diaries.,,, we'll see...

  3. i love these quotes!! i love to write, but am sometimes plagued with the thought of, 'nobody will like this,' or 'this will not be understood.' i needed that reminder that i can write for myself. and if anything, the exercise itself is therapeutic, and helps me recapture and sort through everything in my head.
