Elie Wiesel Quote: “I feel that books, just like people, have a destiny. Some invite sorrow, others joy, some both.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Love makes everything complicated.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Music does not replace words, it gives tone to the words.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “To forget would be not only dangerous but offensive; to forget the dead would be akin to killing them a second time.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “In the beginning there was faith – which is childish; trust – which is vain; and illusion – which is dangerous. We believed in God, trusted in man, and lived with the illusion that every one of us has been entrusted with a sacred spark from the Shekhinah’s flame; that every one of us carries in his eyes and in his soul a reflection of God’s image. That was the source if not the cause of all our ordeals.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Which is worse? Killing with hate or killing without hate?”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “I did not deny God’s existence, but I doubted his absolute justice.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. Sometimes we must interfere. When human lives are endangered, when human dignity is in jeopardy, national borders and sensitivities become irrelevant. Wherever men and women are persecuted because of their race, religion, or political views, that place must – at that moment – become the center of the universe.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “The silence of two people is deeper than the silence of one.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “I write to understand as much as to be understood.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Most people think that shadows follow, precede or surround beings or objects. The truth is that they also surround words, ideas, desires, deeds, impulses and memories.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. Sometimes we must interfere. When human lives are endangered, when human dignity is in jeopardy, national borders and sensitivities become irrelevant.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “The main theme remains constant: man owes it to himself to reject despair; better to rely on miracles than opt for resignation. By changing himself, man can change the world.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “For in the end, it is all about memory, its sources and its magnitude, and, of course, its consequences.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Bread, soup – these were my whole life. I was a body. Perhaps less than that even: a starved stomach. The stomach alone was aware of the passage of time.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “The gates of the camp opened. It seemed as though an even darker night was waiting for us on the other side. The.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Then he smiled. I shall always remember that smile. What world did it come from? Heavy snow continued to fall over the corpses.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “But now, I no longer pleaded for anything. I was no longer able to lament. On the contrary, I felt very strong. I was the accuser, God the accused.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “YOM KIPPUR. The Day of Atonement. Should we fast? The question was hotly debated. To fast could mean a more certain, more rapid death. In this place, we were always fasting. It was Yom Kippur year-round. But there were those who said we should fast, precisely because it was dangerous to do so. We needed to show God that even here, locked in hell, we were capable of singing His praises. I.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “I was twelve. I believed profoundly. During the day I studied the Talmud, and at night I ran to the synagogue to weep over the destruction of the Temple.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “My hands were aching, I was clenching them so hard. To strangle the doctor and the others! To set the whole world on fire! My father’s murderers! But even the cry stuck in my throat.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Did I write it so as not to go mad or, on the contrary, to go mad in order to understand the nature of madness?”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “His last word had been my name. A summons. And I had not responded.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Don’t be deluded. Hitler has made it clear that he will annihilate all Jews before the clock strikes twelve.” I exploded: “What do you care what he said? Would you want us to consider him a prophet?”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “We were the masters of nature, the masters of the world. We had transcended everything – death, fatigue, our natural needs. We were stronger than cold and hunger, stronger than the guns and the desire to die, doomed and rootless, nothing but numbers, we were the only men on earth. At.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “How was it possible that men, women, and children were being burned and that the world kept silent?”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Man asks and God replies. But we don’t understand His replies. We cannot understand them. Because they dwell in the depths of our souls and remain there until we die.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “There are a thousand and one gates leading into the orchard of mystical truth. Every human being has his own gate. We must never make the mistake of wanting to enter the orchard by any gate but our own. To do this is dangerous for the one who enters and also for those who are already there.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “I knew that I was no longer arguing with him but with Death itself, with Death that he had already chosen.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “What are You, my God? I thought angrily. How do You compare to this stricken mass gathered to affirm to You their faith, their anger, their defiance? What does Your grandeur mean, Master of the Universe, in the face of all this cowardice, this decay, and this misery? Why do you go on troubling these poor people’s wounded minds, their ailing bodies?”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “One day when I was able to get up, I decided to look at myself in the mirror on the opposite wall. I had not seen myself since the ghetto. From the depths of the mirror, a corpse was contemplating me. The look in his eyes as he gazed at me has never left me.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “In this place, there is no such thing as father, brother, friend. Each of us lives and dies alone.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “I have tried to keep memory alive... I have tried to fight those who would forget. Because if we forget, we are guilty, we are accomplices.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “I didn’t know that this was the moment in time and the place where I was leaving my mother and Tzipora forever.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “This was it; the end of the road. A silent death, suffocation. No way to scream, to call for help.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “In retrospect I must confess that I do not know, or no longer know, what I wanted to achieve with my words. I only know that without this testimony, my life as a writer – or my life, period – would not have become what it is: that of a witness who believes he has a moral obligation to try to prevent the enemy from enjoying one last victory by allowing his crimes to be erased from human memory.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “I concurred with Job! I was not denying His existence, but I doubted His absolute justice.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “And why do you pray, Moishe?” I asked him. “I pray to the God within me for the strength to ask Him the real questions.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “I looked up at my father’s face, trying to glimpse a smile or something like it on his stricken face. But there was nothing. Not the shadow of an expression. Defeat.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “But now, I no longer pleaded for anything. I was no longer able to lament. On the contrary, I felt very strong. I was the accuser, God the accused. My eyes had opened and I was alone, terribly alone in a world without God, without man. Without love or mercy. I was nothing but ashes now, but I felt myself to be stronger than this Almighty to whom my life had been bound for so long. In the midst of these men assembled for prayer, I felt like an observer, a stranger.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “For us it meant true equality: nakedness. We trembled in the cold. A.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “There are those who tell me that I survived in order to write this text. I am not convinced. I don’t know how I survived; I was weak, rather shy; I did nothing to save myself. A miracle? Certainly not. If heaven could or would perform a miracle for me, why not for others more deserving than myself? It was nothing more than chance. However, having survived, I needed to give some meaning to my survival.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “How much longer would our lives be lived from one “last night” to the next?”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “It was neither German nor Jew who ruled the ghetto – it was illusion.”

Elie Wiesel Quote: “Anything you want to say about God you better make sure you can say in front of a pit of burning babies.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “After trampling over many bodies and corpses, we succeeded in getting inside. We let ourselves fall to the ground.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “I speak from experience that even in darkness, it is possible to create light and encourage compassion. There it is: I still believe in man in spite of man.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “I believe in God – in spite of God! I believe in Mankind – in spite of Mankind! I believe in the Future – in spite of the Past!”
