Franz Kafka

I write differently from what I speak, I speak differently from what I think, I think differently from the way I ought to think, and so it all proceeds into deepest darkness.

  1. If I had seen this before you I would have included it on my Line(s) of the Day haha. What a wonderful quote. I’d never heard it before. Thanks for making me aware of it.

    1. Thanks!
      When I was 15 or 16, I was listening to ‘Penal Colony’, a song from JoyDivision(then called Warsaw).When I looked for the lyrics, I saw comments which claimed that Kafka’s ”In the Penal Colony” was the backdrop for this song.

      I then searched for Franz Kafka on a French site,and saw this quote of his! From then on, it became my favourite quote. I sort of struggled though to find its English translation.

Tell me what you think! :)
