One has just been sent out as a biblical dove, has found nothing green, and slips back
into the darkness of the ark -- Kafka

From Kafka's "Letters to Felice"

A few more bullets (I'm sure more will come):

  • There are times when impossibility swamps possibility like a wave
  • you must realize that you will never get unadulterated happiness from me
  • those juicy Jewish sausages (at least here in Prague that's what they are like, plump as water rats) can be cut up by every relative all over the place (the sound of the taut sausage skin being cut has rung in my ears since childhood) -- all this and worse gives me no sensation of distaste whatever; on the contrary, it does me a great deal of good
