The Best Remedy

“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As longs as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.”

Anne Frank

Born on June 12th, 1929, Anne Frank would have celebrated her 86th birthday on Friday. She was 15 years old when she died in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.
