"It was like this: the brain could no longer bear the worries and pains that were imposed on it.
It said: “I’m giving up; but if there is anyone else here who is interested in preserving the whole, let him assume part of my burden and it will be alright for a bit.”"
— Franz Kafka, Letters to Milena

"I have this vision: That I would finally come and find you. Scattered pieces of distance would not stand in my way. Not needing words; the barest of glimpses would suffice for you and me."
— Franz Kafka, Letters To Milena

Franz Kafka and Milena Jesenská met twice: once in Vienna for four days, and in Gmünd for one. Their correspondance as Letters to Milena is a book - I selected some extracts about the ‘kafkaesque’ affair/tenderness.
