I want to try something new today; I do not know if it will work, but blogs are for experimentation. Instead of putting up some quotation today and moving on, I would like you to supply some of your favorite quotations in the comments to this post. I am thinking of pithy sentences, but you could put something longer down, if you feel so inclined. If this works out well, I might try it again on a particular theme, but today I am just asking for a favorite.
For me, I will give you two related ones from Kafka that I have been thinking about this week:
"There is only a spiritual world; what we call the physical world is the evil in the spiritual one."
"The fact that there is nothing but a spiritual world deprives us of hope and gives us certainty."
Like much of Beckett, the deeper you get into those words, the more savagely funny they become; you just get have to get through the initial two phases of confusion and depression to see it.
