regarding Mockingjay

...the books we need are the kind that act upon us like a misfortune, that make us suffer like the death of someone we love more than ourselves, that make us feel as though we were on the verge of suicide, or lost in a forest remote from all human habitation--a book should serve as the ax for the frozen sea within us.

-Franz Kafka


  1. Most of the time I think that Kafka is a big wackadoodle. But suddenly I feel like we could be best friends. I wonder what his thoughts on ice cream are.

  2. Oooooo, I like that. Where did he say/wright it?

  3. this is exactly how I feel at this very moment, 30 minutes fresh of having finished mockingjay
