Quote of the Day | 0618

I hate to be the one to tell you, but there is no generalizable benefit to having led a life centered on great texts. It is sometimes thought that those whose careers are spent engaging with beautiful and stringent works of literature and philosophy will become, perhaps by osmosis, better persons than they otherwise would have been. Anyone who believes that hasn’t spent much time in English and philosophy departments.

Punt dat Malaparte ook al maakte in Kaput, bij zijn beschrijving van het hof dat Frank hield in bezet Polen.
