"Shouldn't I stake all I have on the one thing I can do? What a hopeless fool I should be if I didn't! My writing may be worthless; in which case, I am definitely and without doubt utterly worthless. If I spare myself in this respect, I am no really sparing myself, I am committing suicide."
Franz Kafka (1883-1924). Citado por Nicholas Murray. Kafka. London: Abacus, 2014, p. 131
