All your terrible beasts

September 12, 2011 § Leave a comment

“Most lonely one, holding aloof, how they have caught up with you by reason of your fame. But lately they were against you from the very root, and now they deal with you as with their equal. And they carry your words about with them in the cages of their presumption and exhibit them in the squares and tease them a little from their own safe distances. All your terrible wild beasts.” (The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge)
