" ... in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.
I simply can't build up my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, misery, and death.
I see the world gradually being turned into a wilderness, I hear the ever approaching thunder, which will destroy us too, I can feel the sufferings of millions and yet, if I look up into the heavens, I think that it will all come right, that this cruelty too will end, and that peace and tranquilty will return again." - Anne Frank
Found this quotation on the net and decided to share it with you guys. I read her book, Diary of a young girl by Anne Frank many years ago and although I can't remember the details of her story, I still remember how her story affect me. It was a good read and highly recommended for those book lover out there. :)
A lil bio of Anne:
Anne Frank (1929 - 1945), Dutch Jewish diarist; born in Germany. Diary of a Young Girl, entry dated July 15, 1944 (1947)
Frank and her family were hiding in Holland when she wrote this. On August 4, their hiding place would be raided by the police, and they would be sent to German and Dutch concentration camps. All of them except Otto Frank, the father, would perish; Anne died in Bergen-Belsen, a German camp, just two months before the liberation of Holland.
The third book from the Beautiful Creature series!
I had the first and second book, and buying the third series seems like a must when you possess the first and second part of the story.
I had been planning to buy this book with my 1 Malaysia Book vouchers, but the book was magically hidden when I had the vouchers and mysteriously appears only after I spend all of it. *Sigh*
So.. In the end, I still need to spend extra money for it.
Since the book was in my 'must have' book list, I bought it anyway without any bad conscience.
And I was pretty much lucky as Popular was having sales on the day that I decided to adopt this novel back home. :)
