mtiwnja4njmzodyxotmyntu2Since I am in Prague it seems apt to include here some aphorisms of Franz Kafka. All of these are taken from Gustav Janouch’s ‘Conversations With Kafka’:

“The fear of death is merely the result of an unfulfilled life”

“A lie is often an expression of the fear that one may be crushed by the truth”

“The future is here within me. The only change will be to make visible the hidden wounds”

“Patience is the only true foundation on which to make one’s dreams come true”

“It is true I have a small room of my own, but that is not a home, only a place of refuge where I can hide my inner turmoil, only to fall all the more headlong into its clutches”
