“No wonder we cannot appreciate the really central Kafka joke: that the horrific struggle to establish a human self results in a self whose humanity is inseparable from the horrific struggle.  That our endless and impossible journey toward home is in fact our home.”

David Foster Wallace (1962-2008)
from Consider the Lobster
