And in the evening, when I lie in bed

and end my prayers with the words,

‘I thank you, God, for all that is good and clear and beautiful,

I am filled with joy’…

I don’t think then of all the misery,

But of the beauty that still remains…

I’ve found that there is always some beauty left

in nature, sunshine, freedom,

in yourself;

these can all help you.

Look at these things, and then you find yourself again,

and God,

and then you regain your balance.  –Anne Frank
