Writer’s Quote Wednesday – Anne Frank

051815_2029_writersquot1

Writer’s Quote Wednesday is organised by Colleen from Silver Threading, and is a wonderful weekly series in which bloggers share the quotes which inspire them. I highly recommend checking them out.

My quote this week doesn’t really need an introduction, or an explanation. There’s a reason writing is used in therapy, and why so many of us escape into worlds of our own creation. Anne Frank says it beautifully.

I agree. Though I feel strange saying that since she had much bigger problems than I do. It’s amazing that she was able to write considering the situation she was in. Most people wouldn’t bother.

    I like to think it kept her sane, and gave her comfort and strength. She never lost hope – I love that about her. But I know what you mean. I’m a writer, and I’m not sure I would have done the same in her situation.

This has always been a favourite quote of mine 🙂

What a perfect quote, Mel. Anne Frank was wise beyond her years. She certainly had a writer’s heart. Thanks so much for sharing this inspiration! It is simply marvelous! ❤

That’s a wonderful Anne Frank quote–I haven’t seen it before. Isn’t it true? Often, I write to forget other parts of the world, and it invariably works.

To give my tuppence’s worth, I watched a good film about her.

Yes, this quote needs no explanation indeed. Great quote!

A beautiful quote, and bittersweet. Thanks for sharing xx

Love the quote. I’ve always believed that expressing oneself by writing, in whatever form, can be a release and a pathway to enlightenment.

And may we all be healed and brought to life as we write. Such good all around therapy.
