You do not need to leave your room.
Remain sitting at your table and listen.
Do not even listen, simply wait.
Do not even wait, be 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), major fiction writer born into a German-speaking Jewish family in Prague. Most of his work was published posthumously.
