Elie Wiesel Quote: “Man comes closer to God through the questions he asks Him, he liked to say. Therein lies true dialogue. 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. The real answers, Eliezer, you will find only within yourself.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “In fact, the question has haunted me for a long time: Does life have meaning after Auschwitz? In a universe cursed because it is guilty, is hope still possible? For a young survivor whose knowledge of life and death surpasses that of his elders, wouldn’t suicide be as great a temptation as love or faith?”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Why did I write it? 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, the immense, terrifying madness that had erupted in history and in the conscience of mankind?”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “As for me, I had ceased to pray. I concurred with Job! I was not denying His existence, but I doubted His absolute justice. Akiba.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Life belongs to man, but the meaning of life is beyond him.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “All this under a magnificent blue sky.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Because if we forget, we are guilty, we are accomplices.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Someone who hates one group will end up hating everyone – and, ultimately, hating himself or herself.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Not to transmit an experience is to betray it.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Better that one heart be broken a thousand times in the retelling, he has decided, if it means that a thousand other hearts need not be broken at all.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “I have learned two lessons in my life: first, there are no sufficient literary, psychological, or historical answers to human tragedy, only moral ones. Second, just as despair can come to one another only from other human beings, hope, too, can be given to one only by other human beings.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Look, whatever you do in life, remember, think higher and feel deeper. It cannot be bad if you do that.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “You are the sum total of all that we have been,” said the youngster who looked like my former self. “In a way we are the ones to execute John Dawson. Because you can’t do it without us. Now, do you see?” I was beginning to understand. An act so absolute as that of killing involves not only the killer but, as well, those who have formed him. In murdering a man I was making them murderers.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “All the dictionary had to offer seemed meager, pale, lifeless.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “What is abnormal is that I am normal. That I survived the Holocaust and went on to love beautiful girls, to talk, to write, to have toast and tea and live my life – that is what is abnormal.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “All my life, until today, I have been content to ask questions. All the while knowing that the real questions, those that concern the creator and his creation, have no answers. I’ll go even farther and say that there is a level at which only the questions are eternal, the answers never are. And so, the patient that I am, more charitable, repeats: ‘Since God is, He is to be found in the questions as well as in the answers.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “We do not know the worth of one single drop of blood, one single tear. All is grace. If the Almighty is the Almighty, the last word for each of us belongs to him.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Humanity would never tolerate it.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “We do not know the worth of one single drop of blood, one single tear.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “One German officer lived in the house opposite ours. He had a room with the Kahn family. They said he was a charming man – calm, likable, polite, and sympathetic. Three days after he moved in he brought Madame Kahn a box of chocolates. The optimists rejoiced.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Never shall I forget those moments that murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to ashes. Never shall I forget those things, even were I condemned to live as long as God Himself. Never.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “I stood petrified. What had happened to me? My father had just been struck, in front of me, and I had not even blinked. I had watched and kept silent. Only yesterday, I would have dug my nails into this criminal’s flesh. Had I changed that much? So fast? Remorse began to gnaw at me. All I could think was: I shall never forgive them for this. My father must have guessed my thoughts, because he whispered in my ear: “It doesn’t hurt.” His cheek still bore the red mark of the hand.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Everybody around us was weeping. Someone began to recite Kaddish, the prayer for the dead. I don’t know whether, during the history of the Jewish people, men have ever before recited Kaddish for themselves.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Which is better, truth that is a lie or the lie that is truth?”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Only fanatics – in religion as well as in politics – can find a meaning in someone else’s death.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “There is a difference between a book of two hundred pages from the very beginning, and a book of two hundred pages, which is the result of an original eight hundred pages. The six hundred pages are there. Only you don’t see them.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Certain things, certain events, seem inexplicable only for a time: up to the moment when the veil is torn aside.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “I remember a young Hungarian Jew, his shoulders stooped like an old man’s, who confessed to some infraction so as to be beaten in his uncle’s stead. “I am young”, he said, “and stronger than he.” He was young but no less weak. He did not survive the beating.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Indifference always helps the aggressor, never his victims. And what is memory if not a noble and necessary response to and against indifference?”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “The condemned man’s traditional last meal is a joke,” I said loudly, “a joke in the worst possible taste, an insult to the corpse that he is about to be. What does a man care if he dies with an empty stomach?” The.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “What is the difference between Jew and Christians? We all await the Messiah. You believe He has already come and gone, while we do not. I therefore propose that we await Him together. And when He appears, we can ask Him: were You here before?”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “He struggles to understand why fate has spared him and not so many others. Was it to know happiness? His happiness will never be complete. To know love? He will never be sure of being worthy of love. A part of him is still back there, on the other side, where the dead deny the living the right to leave them behind. His recovery will be a road into exile, a journey in which the touch of the woman he loves will matter less than the image of his grandmother buried under a mountain of ashes.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “What is man? Ally of God or simply his toy? His triumph or his fall?”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Love is this and love is that; man is born to love; he is only alive when he is in the presence of a woman he loves or should love.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “No commandment surpasses the one concerning the liberation of hostages, for they are among the starving, the thirsting, the stripped, always in danger of death.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Love that makes everything complicated. While hate simplifies everything. Hatred puts accents on things and beings, and on what separates them. Love erases accents.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “What all these victims need above all is to know that they are not alone; that we are not forgetting them, that when their voices are stifled we shall lend them ours, that while their freedome depends on ours, the quality of our freedom depends on theirs.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “As long as one dissident is in prison, our freedom will not be true. As long as one child is hungry, our life will be filled with anguish and shame. What all these victims need above all is to know that they are not alone; that we are not forgetting them, that when their voices are stifled we shall lend them ours, that while their freedom depends on ours, the quality of our freedom depends on theirs.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Had the situation not been so tragic, we might have laughed.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “What is man? Dust turned to hope.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “When human lives are endangered, when human dignity is in jeopardy, national borders and sensitivities become irrelevant.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “No one is Sighet suspected that our fate was already sealed. In Berlin we had been condemned, but we didn’t know it. We didn’t know that a man called Adolf Eichmann was already in Budapest weaving his black web, at the head of an elite, efficient detachment of thirty-five SS men, planning the operation that wold crown his career; or that all the necessary means for “dealing with” us were already at hand in a place called Birkenau.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Writing is not like painting where you add. It is not what you put on the canvas that the reader sees. Writing is more like a sculpture where you remove, you eliminate in order to make the work visible. Even those pages you remove somehow remain. There is a difference between a book of two hundred pages which is the result of an original eight hundred pages. The six hundred pages are there. Only you don’t see them.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “We must choose between the violence of adults and the smiles of children, between the ugliness of hate and the will to oppose it. Between inflicting suffering and humiliation on our fellow man and offering him the solidarity and hope he deserves. Or not.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “The most vital lesson to be learned from the Holocaust era is that Auschwitz was possible because the enemy suceeded in dividing, in separating, in splitting human society, nation against nation, Christian against Jew, young against old. And not enough people cared.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Dead souls have more to say than living ones.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “It is obvious that the war which Hitler and his accomplices waged was a war not only against Jewish men, women, and children, but also against Jewish religion, Jewish culture, Jewish tradition, therefore Jewish memory.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Man prefers to blame himself for all possible sins and crimes rather than come to the conclusion that God is capable of the most flagrant injustice. I still blush every time I think of the way God makes fun of human beings, his favorite toys.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “Each man was his own executioner and his own victim.”
Elie Wiesel Quote: “If your suffering splashes others, those around you, those for whom you represent a reason to live, then you must kill it, choke it.”
