Dawn by Elie Wiesel

"Being afraid, ... , is nothing. Fear is only a color, a backdrop, a landscape. The fear of either the victim or the executioner is unimportant. What matters is the fact that each of them is playing a role which has been imposed upon him. The two roles are the extremities of the estate of man. The tragic thing is the imposition. " (p.g. 52)

"Why must you try to hate me? " " In order to give my action a meaning which may somehow transcent it. " (p.g. 77)
