Night By Elie Weisel

Night By Elie Weisel “Life is easier to take than you’d think; all that is necessary is to accept the impossible, do without the indispensable, and bear the intolerable.” This quote was said by Kathleen Norris. I think that I agree with the quote, and also that the quote was not being sarcastic. One example of this quote being true is in the book Night by Elie Weisel. When the Nazi powers began to take over the country Elie and his family didnt “accept the impossible”. They thought they if they stayed where they were, that the whole thing would blow over.

But they were wrong. His family are sent to a concentration camp. He and his father are separated from his family, and then they are forced to do series of tests in which the is inhumane in regular society. These tests included, getting shaved, getting doused with gasoline, and staying out in the cold for hours with no clothes on. They had to “bear the intolerable”. Another example of the quote was the move “Max and Helen”.

They, just as the Weisel family, refused to “accept the impossible” and evacuate their homes before it was too late. In this movie, however, Max, Helen, and, Helens sister were separated from their parents and sent to a quarry where they had to work. They had to work very hard and were beaten, and they had to “bear the intolerable” . If these families wouldve lived by the quote by Kathleen Norris, they could have saved themselves from much suffering and agony. If you can “accept the impossible”, you can just live without worrying about whats going to happen.

And if you can “bear the intolerable”, you can get through the tough times, and live for the good.
