"You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies, that is why you must sing and dance, and write poems and suffer and understand, for all that is life."
Jiddu Krishnamurti
Elie Wiesel Quotes
A destruction, an annihilation that only man can provoke, only man can prevent.
Elie Wiesel

Because I remember, I despair. Because I remember, I have the duty to reject despair.
Elie Wiesel

Because of indifference, one dies before one actually dies.
Elie Wiesel

Elie Wiesel

I have not lost faith in God. I have moments of anger and protest. Sometimes I've been closer to him for that reason.
Elie Wiesel

Elie Wiesel

In Jewish history there are no coincidences.
Elie Wiesel

Indifference, to me, is the epitome of evil.

Elie Wiesel

Mankind must remember that peace is not God's gift to his creatures; peace is our gift to each other.
Elie Wiesel

Elie Wiesel

No one is as capable of gratitude as one who has emerged from the kingdom of night.
Elie Wiesel

Not to transmit an experience is to betray it.
Elie Wiesel

Some stories are true that never happened.
Elie Wiesel

The act of writing is for me often nothing more than the secret or concious desire to carve words on a tombstone: to the memory of a town forever vanished, to the memory of a childhood in exile, to the memory of all those I loved and who, before I could tell them I loved them, went away.
Elie Wiesel

The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference.
Elie Wiesel

The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.
Elie Wiesel

There are victories of the soul and spirit. Sometimes, even if you lose, you win.
Elie Wiesel

There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.
Elie Wiesel

Ultimately, the only power to which man should aspire is that which he exercies over himself.
Elie Wiesel

We have to go into the despair and go beyond it, by working and doing for somebody else, by using it for something else.
Elie Wiesel
