Myšlenky z knih

Oběť ztrácí všechnu velikost, je-li už jen parodií nebo sebevraždou. Jsou ovšem také někteří lhostejní lidé, ale lhostejnost je otřelou formou beznaděje. Kameny na staveništi leží jen zdánlivě bez ladu a skladu, je-li kdesi na staveništi jeden jediný architekt, byť jen jediný, který má v mysli katedrálu. Každý, kdo začne přemýšlet, mění se v setbu.
