RIP Elie Wiesel. Read his best quotes:

eliewiesel.jpgElie Wiesel, Holocaust Survivor and Nobel Laureate, Died yesterday at 87. Here are his best quotes:

“We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.”

“The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference.”

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

“No human race is superior; no religious faith is inferior. All collective judgments are wrong. Only racists make them.”

“Friendship marks a life even more deeply than love. Love risks degenerating into obsession, friendship is never anything but sharing.”

“Peace is our gift to each other.”

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

“When a person doesn’t have gratitude, something is missing in his or her humanity. A person can almost be defined by his or her attitude toward gratitude.”

“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.”

“I have not lost faith in God. I have moments of anger and protest. Sometimes I’ve been closer to him for that reason.”

“Whoever listens to a witness, becomes a witness,” he said at the Legacy of Holocaust Survivors conference at Yad Vashem’s Valley of the Communities in April 2002.”

“[Albert] Camus said, ‘Where there is no hope, one must invent hope.’ It is only pessimistic if you stop with the first half of the sentence and just say, There is no hope. Like Camus, even when it seems hopeless, I invent reasons to hope,” he said in an interview with TIME in 2006.”
