Post Quiz: Dear Diary

This is simple: guess who wrote what in their diaries.


  1. We have discovered the most terrible bomb in the history of the world.
  2. We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker, of course, and the end cannot be far.
  3. My life is going to be a farm where I’ll grow my food.
  4. Apathetic, witless, fearful. I have nothing to say to anyone – never.
  5. He is glad to see me. I am in heaven. That man has got everything to be a king.
  6. Every now and then I am reminded that even though the need for being a feminist is gradually disappearing in this country, we haven't quite reached the millennium.
  7. I've been described as a tough and noisy woman, a prizefighter, a man-hater, you name it.
  8. ...all this thought and writing has made my hands tremble but I just want to keep pouring it out until that great pot in the mind is, though not emptied, relieved.
  9. It appeared – in vivid fire, with shining colors and balanced patterns – and released me from every thrall, inner and outer.
  10. My diary is not meant to be read by any person except myself.
