Gustav Janouch Quotes

"Svako živi iza rešetaka koje nosi sa sobom. Zato se sada tako mnogo piše o životinjama. To je izraz čežnje za slobodnim, prirodnim životom. No, prirodni život za čoveka jeste ljudski život. To se, ipak, ne vidi. Nećemo da vidimo. Ljudska egzistencija je odveć tegobna, zato bismo da je se otarasimo, barem u fantaziji. [...] Vraćamo se životinji. To je znatno prostije od ljudske egzistencije. Dobro ušuškani usred stada, marširamo ulicama gradova na posao, na valove i u zadovoljstva. To je život strogo kao u kancelariji. Nema čuda, nego jedino uputstva za upotrebu, obrasci i propisi. Bojimo se slobode i odgovornosti. Stoga se radije gušimo iza rešetaka koje čak i sami popravljamo." (Kafka o "Preobražaju")"

Frederick Carl Frieseke Quotes
