Anyone who cannot come to terms with his life while he is alive needs one hand to ward off a little his despair over his fate... but with his other hand he can note down what he sees among the ruins. -Franz Kafka

There are not too many people in the world who get words named after them. Because of Franz Kafka's meaningful, beautifully crafted, and occasionally eerie pieces, he has earned such an honor. Kafkaesque was coined in honor of him and what he has done. What Kafka says in his writing defines us as human beings in a way that gets into your mind and plays with your brain.
