“If you live in a past dream, you don't enjoy what is happening right now because you will always wish it to be different than it is.

This leads to self pity, suffering and tears.”

Wiesel: Otherwise, why am I here? I have the feeling, really, that my life is an offering I could have died. I could have died every minute between “44 and ‘45. So once I have received the gift, I must justify it. And the only way to justify life is by affirming the right to life of anyone who needs such affirmation.
Wiesel: Here and there one person might listen and do. Another person might listen and not do. But I prefer to think that here and there are small miracles. And they are small miracles. A good student, a good reader, a friend. I think we spoke about it years ago, once upon a time I was convinced I could change the whole world. Anyone can change the whole world. Now I’m satisfied with small measures of grace. If we could open the door of one jail and free one innocent person. If I could save one child from starvation, believe me, to me, it would as much if not more than all the work that I am doing and all the recognition that I may get for it.
