According to Anne,paper is more patient than persons because the diary is a silent recorder of Anne's thoughts, non-judgmental and patient. People on the other hand rarely listen and constantly censure her whenever she talks. People are seldom interested in listening to the musings of a thirteen-year-old schoolgirl but a diary would not object or shut her up. It would patiently let her fill up its blank pages with her thoughts, observations and comments without judgement. This diary writing was an extremely personal and intimate act for her and she decided that she would not let anyone read it.
Novels are fiction, the Diary of a Young Girl is hence NOT a novel.
