“Bite your lips, little brother… Don’t cry. Keep your anger, your hate, for another day, for later. The day will come but not now… Wait, Clench your teeth and wait…” (53)

The French girl that Elie met in the warehouse where they both worked said these words to calm him down a bit. I think that this girl is a really inspiring/brave person because she said this to Elie and also because if she talked german she was at risk of getting caught. Elie had just gotten beat up and he was angry but this girl had gone over there and said for him to just keep it all in to save it for another time. I feel that if someone like her said this to me I would feel super calm and comfortable.
