I love a good quote.
So, for this week’s Quote of the Week, I’d like to share a few of these from the great man himself.
The quote that will always be most popular is from Kafka. In his story “The Metamorphosis”, the narrator, Rilke, laments his inability to write about what is happening to him. He says, “The moment I am set free, I am set free.
I have to admit, I have never read Kafka’s story, but I have heard the quote plenty of times. I would love to be able to add it to my own list of quotes, so I thought I would share it with you. Also, kudos to the poster below who added a note about the quote below. The quote really does make you think.
The quote that made me laugh out loud was “If you want to survive, you must first find the courage to die.” It’s a quote that should be engraved on everyone’s tombstone, so I will take the time to include it in my own list of Kafka quotes.
And then there was the quote, “It is not enough that I am alive, I have to keep my body alive.” This is a perfect example of Kafka’s writing style and how he’s able to convey the pain of life with no words. It is not enough that we are alive, we have to keep our bodies alive. It’s not enough we’re alive, we have to keep our bodies alive.
I see a lot of people here that are missing the point. You are not here to “keep your bodies alive”. You are here to live your life and be happy. When you find your passion, you will do whatever you can to keep it alive. So my point is, you are not here to “keep your bodies alive”. You are here to live your life.
The point I am trying to make is, you don’t want to live your life to death. You want to live your life and enjoy it. You want to live your life to the fullest and to live as your favorite person you can. You want to live your life as a person that you like. You want to be happy. You want to be alive.
