Quote of the Week

This week's quotation comes to us from Elie Wiesel, a famous Jewish-American writer who survived the Holocaust. Wiesel has written many books and is world renowned for his contributions to world literature and the struggle for human rights across the glove. He's super inspiring.

Here's a powerful quotation from Wiesel:

"I write to understand as much as to be understood."

What I like about this particular quotation is that it totally relates to what we're trying to do whenever we write. We're trying to make others see what we have to say and in this transaction, our beliefs and opinions often become much more clear to us. In the process of writing, we become the speaker and the audience and are able to reveal our inner most thoughts to others and ourselves.

Continue to write and express yourself. You may find that you understand your own mind more in the process!
