  • Mr. Dussel makes up everything as he goes along, and anyone wishing to contradict His Majesty had better think twice.
  • Forgive me, Kitty, they don’t call me a bundle of contradictions for nothing! Yours, Anne M. Frank
  • What does "contradiction" mean?
  • Father said that he and Dussel had dealt with the subject once before, at which time he’d professed to agree with Dussel because he didn’t want to contradict the elder in front of the younger, but that, even then, he hadn’t thought it was fair.
  • TUESDAY, AUGUST 1, 1944 Dearest Kitty, "A bundle of contradictions" was the end of my previous letter and is the beginning of this one.
  • Like so many words, it can be interpreted in two ways: a contradiction imposed from without and one imposed from within.
  • Can you please tell me exactly what "a bundle of contradictions" is?
  • Then I talk back and start contradicting everyone until the old familiar Anne refrain inevitably crops up again: "No one understands me!" This phrase is part of me, and as unlikely as it may seem, there’s a kernel of truth in it.

  • There are no more uses of "contradict" in the book.
