Franz Kafka quotes

The British website,For Reading Addicts, decided to showcase quotes from Franz Kafka because June 3 is the anniversary of his death. Here are some quotes that resonated deeply with me:

“Don’t bend; don’t water it down; don’t try to make it logical; don’t edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.”

“All I am is literature, and I am not able or willing to be anything else.”

“By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.”

“Books are a narcotic.”

“Youth is happy because it has the capacity to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.”

“Many a book is like a key to unknown chambers within the castle of one’s own self.”
