In an entry dated July 15, 1944, Anne writes the following: …in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart. I simply can’t build my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, misery, and death. I see the world gradually being turned into a wilderness, I hear the ever approaching thunder, which will destroy us too, I can feel the sufferings of millions and yet, if I look up into the heavens, I think that it will all come right, that this cruelty too will end, and that peace and tranquillity will return again. What important aspects of Anne’s personality does this excerpt capture? What do these personality traits suggest about Anne’s maturity? How do excerpts like this one affect readers of the diary? ( this is on the book the diary of a young girl by anne frank)

    I think you're right. Everyone has more than one aspect to his or her character, and we are seeing a new one, a more mature one develop in Anne here.
