literacki


"Inanimate objects are always correct and cannot, unfortunately, be reproached with anything. I have never observed a chair shift from one foot to another, or a bed rear on its hinds legs. And tables, even when they are tried, will not dare to bend their knees. I suspect that objects do this from pedagogical considerations, to reprove us constantly for our instability."
— Zbigniew Herbert, “Inanimate Objects”
