“I don’t think of all the misery
but of the beauty that still remains”
by Anne Frank, The Diary of a young girl
Very wise words that point to a powerful internal process. Anne Frank describes enduring immense suffering, keep looking for the little ray of sunshine that’s always there, for the courage and hope amidst the sea of suffering and despair. It’s positivity in the face of almost insurmountable odds, a personal miracle.

indeed, and nice to see you doing concise as well as not 😀 … although hard to say that to you because you do not concise so beautifully !
I may learn slowly…but I do listen – and watch.. and get there – eventually 😉 Thank you. ❤
And long may it be so … continued learning, and the humility that’s required 😀
Hopefully!! Or I won’t fit into my snuggling winter hat 😛

good thinking dude! Round the corner really… jeepers – it HAS flown this year.
I realized I still haven’t read this book. Thanks for the post and reminding me. Really enjoy your blog btw 🙂
Hey Michael, my pleasure:)
It´s amazing the wisdom and strength of this girl. Never met or heard about anybody like this person.
Yes it is, and amazing how she is able to write an internal process so clearly, I wanted to write something similar but she says it perfectly.
I believe we’re all capable of making these kinds of miracles ourselves:)
I share an obsession with all things Ann Frank. I wrote a few blogs about her also. She is also alleged to have written, “I believe people are basically good.” —Right before they shipped the family off to the camps.
Hey Sue-Ann, then you know more about her than me. It’s a bit ironic that she said that.
I like this because refers to an internal process of not letting the hope candle go out how ever bad the circumstances.
Nice to hear from you
wonderful post! From the mouth of the young – great wisdom that we need to hear and hold onto more and more. Thank you for sharing this.
