Monday with Witold Gombrowicz

From Diary, Volume 2 (1957-1961)

"It is easier to hate someone for picking his nose than to love him for composing a symphony. For the trifle is characteristic and describes the person in his everyday dimension" p. 88

"If I could for one moment cope with the whole. To constantly live only in fragments--pieces? To always concentrate on one thing, in order to have all the rest escape?" p. 158
