Of all the books we’re made to read in high school, Anne Frank’s The Diary of a Young Girl is perhaps the one high schoolers are least equipped to fully appreciate. While it’s counterintuitive to think that the writings of a teenager wouldn’t resonate most with other teenagers, it’s only as adults that we can truly understand just how profound and wise-beyond-her-years Frank was.

Of course, this makes Frank’s story — and of her betrayal — all the more poignant and devastating: She had the poise and maturity of an adult, yet never actually got to reach adulthood. Nevertheless, these 29 soul-stirring Anne Frank quotes can teach us all, no matter your age, a few essential things about life.
