Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl

Saturday, 12 February, 1944
Dear Kitty,
The sun is shining, the sky is a deep blue, there is a lovely breeze and I’m longing—so longingーfor everything. To talk, for freedom, for friends, to be alone. And I do so long…to cry! I feel as if I’m going to burst, and I know that it would get better with crying, but I can’t, I’m restless, I go from one room to the other, breathe through the crack of closed window, feel my heart beating, as if it is saying, “Can’t you satisfy my longings as last?”

from “Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl” (Translated by M. Mooyaart-Doubleday)
