Kafka

***************

You do not need to
leave your room to roll in the
stench of ecstasy

***************

God is never to
be doubted . . . but the Bible
cannot be believed

***************

If Atlas were to
drop the Earth we could all find
perfect happiness

***************

A fresh outburst of
beauty is worthless without
the refuge of vice

***************

Self-observation
is a hollow, boring act
of complacency

***************

Whatever distracts
from perpetual despair
is born of evil

***************

Take an ax to the
Tree of Knowledge . . . The serpent
will writhe at your feet

***************

In the fight between
Don Quixote and the world,
Sancho Panza wins

***************

The transmigration
of souls is as comfortless
as the infinite

***************

Kiss your guilt as you
would kiss a woman, then creep
away and use drugs

***************
