Maybe not hundreds of years, but someday. - I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are really good at heart.

Otto Frank: We don't need the Nazis to destroy us. We're destroying ourselves.

Anne Frank: [Peter has removed the Star of David badge from his coat] You took off your star.

Peter Van Daan: That's right.

Anne Frank: You can't do that. They arrest you if you go out without your star.

Peter Van Daan: Who's going out?

Anne Frank: What are you going to do with it?

Peter Van Daan: Burn it.

Anne Frank: I don't think I could burn mine. I don't know why.

Peter Van Daan: You couldn't? Something they made you wear so they could kick you around?

Anne Frank: I know, but after all, it is the Star of David, isn't it?

Margot: Sometimes I wish the end would come, whenever.

Mrs. Edith Frank: Margot!

Margot: At least we'd know where we were.

Mrs. Edith Frank: You should be ashamed of yourself, talking that way. Think how lucky we are, think of the thousands dying in the war every day, think of the people in concentration camps.

Anne Frank: What's the good of that? What's the good of thinking of misery when you're already miserable?

Otto Frank: [to Anne] Being here has certain advantages for you. Now for instance, you remember that battle you had with your mother the other day on the subject of overshoes? You said you would rather die than wear overshoes, remember? And what happened? In the end you had to wear them. Now, you see, for as long as we are here, you won't have to wear overshoes, isn't that great? And the piano. You won't have to practice on the piano. I tell you, this is going to be a fine life for you.
