"If the book we are reading does not wake us, as with a fist hammering on our skulls, then why do we read it? Good God, we also would be happy if we had no books and such books that make us happy we could, if need be, write ourselves.

—Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Austrian writer, The Metamorphosis, The Trial
