"I have hated the words and I have loved them, and I hope I have made them right."

the last line written by Liesel Meminger in her novel "The Book Thief," p. 528

After encountering Max being forced on the way to a concentration camp, Liesel becomes hopeless and disdainful of the written word, seeing Hitler's words as the source of her suffering. Ilsa Hermann gives her a blank book and encourages her to write; Liesel writes the story of her life, containing both tragedy and beauty, at a fevered pace. Liesel has come to the realization that words can cause both violence and comfort, and she strives to make them "right" by combating vicious propaganda with writing that emanates from selflessness and love.

I took this right from the GradeSaver site. I thought it was a great quote for your question. There are more quotes as well. I'll provide the source link below.
