Jean-Paul Sartre

You know, it’s quite a job starting to love somebody. You have to have energy, generosity, blindness. There is even a moment, in the very beginning, when you have to jump across a precipice: if you think about it you don’t do it.

    1. Oh,yes.I think it is important to know what ‘falling in love’ really means.When you think about it,the precipice-bit is very true.
      I’m 21,but still haven’t figured out what love and everything bundled to it are.For me,”love” is more complex than what it seems to many persons.That’s why I’m really interested in reading Erich Fromm’s book ”The Art of Loving”.Following my experience with ”Quiet”,I’ve understood that there’s a lot to be gained from non-fiction book as well,as long as they’re not written by a millionaire self-proclaimed guru,like Robin Sharma.

      1. Well, I’m no way an expert on love (quite the opposite, I suppose, considering that I’m divorced), but I do believe there’s more to it than meets the eye… Now you’re actually motivating me to start reading non-fiction as well! By the way, the Kafka book is amazing – I haven’t finished it yet, but it’s a unique book, quite unlike anything I ever read.

      2. I’m glad you’re liking the book.In fact,only Kafka can write such an absurd story without making lose any of its seriousness.

        By the end of the book,your mind will be squeezed by a conversation between K and a priest! I was really mindblown when reading it.

        Also,Kafka used to work in an insurance company before writing his books,so you now see where he drew inspiration from! Banks and insurance companies…they have your life in their hands,as at one point or another,you’re bound to come to them.They encourage you to take loans and insurance,but the moment you cease to pay,you’re crushed!

        At the end of the day,we are just like K,little men in a big world,and we’re just as helpless….

      3. Now I can’t wait for the end of the book – I can’t wait I’m saying it… Actually, I’ve had my share of red tape recently when arranging things connected with my divorce and move – I don’t exaggerate, but it was worse than Kafka. I keep on going to various offices and I keep to being refused for various mostly ridiculous reasons. I think I’ll blog about it, but I’m afraid no one will believe me it’s real.

Tell me what you think! :)
