Elie Wiesel quotes page 2

The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of beauty is not ugliness, it's
indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is
not death, but indifference between life and death.
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

Of course some wars may have been necessary or inevitable, but none was ever regarded as
holy. For us, a holy war is a contradiction in terms. War dehumanizes, war diminishes, war
debases all those who wage it. The Talmud says, "Talmidei hukhamim marbin shalom
baolam" (It is the wise men who will bring about peace). Perhaps, because wise men
remember best.
Elie Wiesel

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

If you ask me what I want to achieve, it's to create an awareness, which is already the
beginning of teaching.
Elie Wiesel

Whenever an angel says, "Be not afraid!" you'd better start worrying. A big assignment is on
the way.
Elie Wiesel

Think higher, feel deeper.
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

One person of integrity can make a difference.
Elie Wiesel

Hope is like peace. It is not a gift from God. It is a gift only we can give one another.
Elie Wiesel

Whoever survives a test, whatever it may be, must tell the story. That is his duty.
Elie Wiesel
