“People who have experienced nothing love to tell stories while people who have experienced a great deal suddenly have no stories to tell at all.”
Daniel Kehlmann, Ruhm. Ein Roman in neun Geschichten

“It's precisely the sense that we're different that makes us so banal.”
Daniel Kehlmann, Ruhm. Ein Roman in neun Geschichten

“It was both odd and unjust, a real example of pitiful arbitrariness of existance, that you were born into a particular time & held prisoner there whether you wanted it or not. It gave you an indecent advantage over the past and made you a clown vis-a-vis the future.”
Daniel Kehlmann
