"What have you done with your gift of sex?
It was a failure, in the end that is all that they will say."

Franz Kafka, Milena Jesenska, the truths of trial and defeat.

"She is a living fire, of a kind I have never seen before, a fire that moreover in spite of everything burns only for him.
At the same time, extremely affectionate, courageous and intelligent.
She puts all that into her sacrifice or, if you prefer, comes by it through sacrifice."
