The Trial | Franz Kafka

He shouted in anger, but it was also the scream of one who sees another fall and, shocked and without thinking, screams against his own will.

Want this book

quote
Haroon_Ishaq

The desire for more positive experience is itself a negative experience. And, paradoxically, the acceptance of one‘s negative experience is itself a positive experience.

rachelk Sounds Buddhist 🤔 4y

The Trial | Franz Kafka

Sometimes we find ourselves in the middle of it, no choice whether you accept it or turn it down, you have to defend yourself, then if you are tired its bad.

Kafka puts it this way;

"He no longer had any choice whether he would accept the trial or turn it down, he was in the middle of it and had to defend himself. If he was tired, then that was bad."

rretzler Brave of you to even start. After A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, I swore off Joyce forever - I‘ve heard that Ulysses is just MORE of the same. 4y
Haroon_Ishaq @rretzler I've started and started again so many times now it seems like eternal 😭 4y
akckitty Lol! 😅 4y
Jedi_Bruno @Haroon_Ishaq I have started and stopped reading Moby Dick so many times I can‘t count. So I can sympathize with the frustration. 4y

moments "when you think you‘ve achieved nothing at all, when it seems that the only trials to come to a good end are those that were determined to have a good end from the start and would do so without any help, while all the others are lost despite all the running to and fro, all the effort, all
the little, apparent successes that gave such joy."

Freespirit Should I read a Kafka? 4y
Haroon_Ishaq @Freespirit it's a yes 👍 4y
Haroon_Ishaq @Gina The Metamorphosis is nice, it's tragic how easily people, once loved, get alienated nd bcm a bad memory. 4y
Freespirit Thanks @Gina @Haroon_Ishaq I will be on the lookout for The Metamorphosis😊 4y

I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you're licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.

This is how i journeyed Kurd history and Kurdistan, a fascinating journalistic travelogue. It gives a good historical insight into the tragic history of Kurdish people and their emergence into a stateless legitimate power in the Middle East.

When you‘ve been in the world for thirty years already and had to make your own way through everything
yourself, which has been my lot, then you become hardened to surprises and don‘t take them too hard.
