The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank

Happy time

What is ironic about the following statement: “It’s an odd idea for someone like me to keep a diary…because it seems to me that neither I – nor for that matter anyone else – will be interested in the unbosomings of a thirteen-year-old school girl”?

Anne is merely reflecting on the fact that she is writing a diary, something she'd likely not revisit, nor, would she want to read anyone else's. This is ironic because her words have been shared with and read by millions.
