Indifference


The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference.
The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference.
The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference.
And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.
Elie Wiesel

The motto that governs Elie Wiesel's life:
Lo taamod al dam rĂ©akha—"Thou shall not stand idly by."

The opposite of love is hate
The opposite of art is politics
The opposite of faith is fear
And the opposite of life is death, because the opposite of indifference is commitment.

In Peace and Friendship
