As you float now, where I held you
and let go, remember when fear
cramps your heart what I told you:
lie gently and wide to the light-year
stars, lie back, and the sea will hold you.

Philip Booth, from his poem “First Lesson”

What are you waiting for
come home, come home, lost
in the waters, blue and permanent.

“It’s really a wonder that I haven’t dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.” 
-Anne Frank was born today in 1929. Her diary, written during her family’s two years of hiding in the Nazi-occupied Netherlands, is a thoughtful, moving, and often amusing account that offers a fascinating commentary on human courage and frailty.
