A Kafka Quote

All that he does seems to him, it is true, extraordinarily new, but also, because of the incredible spate of new things, extraordinarily amateurish, indeed scarcely tolerable, incapable of becoming history, breaking short the chain of the generations, cutting off for the first time at its most profound source the music of the world, which before him could atleast be divined. Sometimes in his arrogance he has more anxiety for the world than for himself.

- Kafka, "He" (Aphorisms)
