Max Brod & Franz Kafka have a chat

‘Oh no,’ said Kafka, ‘our work is only a bad mood of God, a bad day of his.’

‘Then there is hope outside this manifestation of the world that we know?’

He smiled. ‘Oh, plenty of hope, an infinite amount of hope—but not for us.’

— “Franz Kafka,” Walter Benjamin
