Frases Elie Wiesel

„Desde tiempos inmemoriales la gente ha hablado de paz, pero no la ha conseguido. ¿Será sencillamente que carecemos de suficiente experiencia? Aunque hablamos de paz, hacemos la guerra. A veces hasta guerreamos en el nombre de la paz. […] Puede que la guerra sea una parte tan intrínseca de la historia que no pueda eliminarse… jamás.“

—  Elie Wiesel

From time immemorial, people have talked about peace without achieving it. Do we simply lack enough experience? Though we talk peace, we wage war. Sometimes we even wage war in the name of peace. . . . War may be too much a part of history to be eliminated—ever.
Fuente: ¿Está la paz mundial en el horizonte?, citado en "The Watchtower" (15 de abril de 1991).

„A moral society is committed to memory: I believe in memory. The Greek word alethia means Truth, Things that cannot be forgotten. I believe in those things that cannot be forgotten and because of that so much in my work deals with memory… What do all my books have in common? A commitment to memory.“

—  Elie Wiesel

"Building a Moral Society", Chamberlin Lecture at Lewis & Clark College (1995)
Contexto: An immoral society betrays humanity because it betrays the basis for humanity, which is memory. An immoral society deals with memory as some politicians deal with politics. A moral society is committed to memory: I believe in memory. The Greek word alethia means Truth, Things that cannot be forgotten. I believe in those things that cannot be forgotten and because of that so much in my work deals with memory... What do all my books have in common? A commitment to memory.

„In mysticism you can jump from A to Z. But the ultimate objective is the same. It's knowledge. It's truth.“

—  Elie Wiesel

In a 1978 interview with John S. Friedman, published in The Paris Review 26 (Spring 1984); and in Elie Wiesel : Conversations (2002) edited by Robert Franciosi, p. 87
Contexto: Miracles in mysticism don't occupy such an important place. It's metaphor, for the peasants, for the crowds, to impress people. What does mysticism really mean? It means the way to attain knowledge. It's close to philosophy, except in philosophy you go horizontally while in mysticism you go vertically. You plunge into it. Philosophy is a slow process of logic and logical discourse: A bringing B bringing C and so forth. In mysticism you can jump from A to Z. But the ultimate objective is the same. It's knowledge. It's truth.
