Keep Calm, Carry On: Kafka’s Zurau Aphorism #45

Je mehr Pferde du anspannst, desto rascher gehts – nämlich nicht das Ausreißen des Blocks aus dem Fundament, was unmöglich ist, aber das Zerreißen der Riemen und damit die leere fröhliche Fahrt. -Franz Kafka (born July 3rd 😉 )

The more horses you harness to the job, the faster the thing goes — that is to say, not tearing the block out of its base, which is impossible, but tearing the straps to shreds, and as a result the weightless merry journey. [Kaiser/Wilkins]
