From ‘Letter to His Father’

January 12, 2012

Antagonistic views on the world united, from the prisoner’s dock by a practicing lawyer – “It is as if a person were a prisoner, and he had not only the intention to escape, which would perhaps be attainable; but also, and indeed simultaneously, the intention to rebuild the prison, as a pleasure dome for himself. But if he escapes, he cannot rebuild, and if he rebuilds, he cannot escape.”, Franz Kafka, Letter to His Father
