It’s Sunday that only means one thing, time to share some quotes!!!
Today’s quotes are from the book The Librarian of Auschwitz by Antonio Iturbe (Click on title to view review)
“Books are extremely dangerous; they make people think.”
“In a place like Auschwitz, where everything is designed to make you cry, a smile is an act of defiance.”
“Within their pages, books contain the wisdom of the people who wrote them. Books never lose their memory.”
“It doesn’t matter how many schools the Nazis close, he would say to them. Each time someone stops to tell a story and children listen, a school has been established.”
“War is like an overflowing river: It’s hard to control and, if you put up a small barrier, it only gets swept along in its path.”
“Adults wear themselves out pointlessly searching for a joy they never find. But in children, it bursts out of every pore.”
“If they lock you up in a lunatic asylum, the worst thing that can happen to you is that you’re sane.”
“Life, any life, is very short. But if you’ve managed to be happy for at least an instant, it will have been worth living.”
“We’re stronger than them because our hearts are stronger. We’re better than them because our hearts are more powerful.”
