“You need not leave your room.
Remain seated at your table and listen.
You need not even listen; simply wait.
You need not even wait; just be quiet, still, and solitary.
The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked.
It has no choice; it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.”
Franz Kafka (1883-1924), German-language fiction writer: image: self-portrait Paul Gaugin.
