  • Mood:

he said, cryptically

a Walter Benjamin quote from Susan Handelman's Fragments of Redemption:

This much Kafka was absolutely sure of: First, that someone must be a fool if he is to help; second, that only a fool's help is real help. The only uncertain thing is: can such help still do a human being any good? It is more likely to help the angels who could do without help. Thus as Kafka puts it, there is an infinite amount of hope, but not for us.



this would be precisely where the comic is located and the reason why Beckett never did kill himself after all.
