from Kafka's diary

From Franz Kafka's diary, Oct 22, 1911, he's been describing some plays that he's attended. A small Jewish theatre.

"The sympathy we have for these actors who are so good, who earn nothing and who do not get nearly enough gratitude and fame is really only sympathy for the sad fate of many noble strivings, above all of our own. Therefore, too, it is so immoderately strong, because on the surface it is attached to strangers and in reality belongs to us."
