Mid Week Quote: Franz Kafka

We are half way through the week so that must mean it is quote time.

This weeks quote is by Franz Kafka. Kafka was a Czech author, most of his work was published after his death. Kafka instructed his friend Max Brod to burn all his work once he died, however Brod ignored these instructions and instead got Kafka’s work published.


“A book must be the axe for the frozen sea within us.”

Franz Kafka

(Letter to Oskar Pollak 1904)


Happy reading everyone.
