On the Death of Elie Wiesel

Last Saturday writer, political activist, and Nobel Peace Prize recipient Elie Wiesel died at the age of 87. A life-long advocate for tolerance and peace, he is probably best known for his moving memoir Night. His writings are filled with sage advice. In honor and remembrance, here are just a few of his wise words:

“The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference.”

“Human suffering anwhere concerns men and women everywhere.”

“All collective judgments are wrong. Only racists make them.”
