    Quotes by Franz Kafka

    • A book must be the ax for the frozen sea within us.
    • Anything that has real and lasting value is always a gift from within.
    • Now the sirens have a still more fatal weapon than their song, namely their silence... someone might have escaped from their singing; but from their silence, certainly never.
    • There art two cardinal sins from which all others spring: Impatience and Laziness.
    • You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.
    • Youth is happy because it has the capacity to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.
