„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.“

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

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

„To forget the dead would be akin to killing them a second time.“ Night

„For the dead and the living, we must bear witness.“

„One person of integrity can make a difference.“

„If the only prayer you say throughout your life is "Thank You," then that will be enough.“

„Write only if you cannot live without writing. Write only what you alone can write.“

„I shall always remember that smile. From what world did it come from?“ Night

„Think higher, feel deeper.“

„We must not see any person as an abstraction. Instead, we must see in every person a universe with its own secrets, with its own treasures, with its own sources of anguish, and with some measure of triumph.“

„They are committing the greatest indignity human beings can inflict on one another: telling people who have suffered excruciating pain and loss that their pain and loss were illusions. (v)“ Night

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

„I don't want my past to become anyone else's future.“

„One day when I was able to get up, I decided to look at myself in the mirror on the opposite wall. I had not seen myself since the ghetto. From the depths of the mirror, a corpse was contemplating me. The look in his eyes as he gazed at me has never left me.“ Night

„He explained to me with great insistence that every question posessed a power that did not lie in the answer.“ Night
