Kafka, blogger

My guess is that someone else is doing the formatting.


"I can prove at any time that my education tried to make a different person out of me than what I have become. It is the harm that my educators could have inflicted on me in following their intentions that I bring to them as a reproach, I demand from their hands the person that I am now, and since they cannot give him to me, I make out of my reproach and laughter a drumbeat into the world beyond. Yet all this only serves another purpose. The reproach that they have spoiled a part of me, have spoiled a good and beautiful part of me—in dreams it sometimes appears to me, as a dead bride appears to others—this reproach, that is always on the point of becoming a sigh, should above all come across as the honest reproach that it really is. So it happens that the great reproach, to which nothing can happen, takes the small one by the hand, the greater walks, the smaller hops, but the small one does get there, it still distinguishes itself just as we always expected, and the trumpet blows for the drums."
(The diaries of Franz Kafka)
