1 Quote    4.2 

The candid, poignant, unforgettable writing of the young girl whose own life story has become an eternal source of courage and inspiration. Hiding from the Nazis in an old office building in Amsterdam's "Secret Annex," a thirteen-year-old girl named Anne Frank became an author. However, the now famo... us diary of her private life and thoughts only reveals a part of Anne's story. This book rounds out the portrait of this remarkable young author with talent. Newly translated, completed and restored to the original order in which Anne wrote them herself in her notebook, Tales from the Secret Annex is a collection of lesser-known writings by Anne Frank: short stories, fables, personal reminiscences, and an unfinished novel, Cady's Life.

Quote from Anne Frank's Tales from the Secret Annex

Ever since I was a little girl and could barely talk, the word 'why' has lived and grown along with me. It's a well-known fact that children ask questions about anything and everything, since almost everything is new to them. That is especially true of me, and not just as a child. Even when I was older, I couldn't stop asking questions.
I have to admit that it can be annoying sometimes, but I comfort myself with the thought that "You won't know until you ask," though by now I've asked so much that they ought to have made me a professor.
When I got older, I noticed that not all questions can be asked and that many whys can never be answered. As a result, I tried to work things out for myself by mulling over my own questions. And I came to the important discovery that questions which you either can't or shouldn't ask in public, or questions which you can't put into words, can easily be solved in your own head. So the word 'why' not only taught me to ask, but also to think. And thinking has never hurt anyone. On the contrary, it does us all a world of good.
