Karel Capek

Karel Capek

was one of the most influential Czech writers of the 20th century
Relativism is neither a method of fighting, nor a method of creating, for both of these are uncompromising and at times even ruthless; rather, it is a method of cognition.More Karel Capek quotes [09/07/2011 10:09:52]
Among human beings, a cat is merely a cat; among cats, a cat is a prowling shadow in a jungle.More Karel Capek quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I find that a real gardener is not a man who cultivates flowers; he is a man who cultivates the soil. He is a creature who digs himself into the earth and leaves the sight of what is on it to us gaping good-for-nothings. He lives buried in the ground. He builds his monument in a heap of compost. If he came into the Garden of Eden, he would sniff excitedly and say: "Good Lord, what humus!"More Karel Capek quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Everyone has the best of feelings towards mankind in general, but not towards the individual man. We'll kill men, but we want to save mankind. And that isn't right, your Reverence. The world will be an evil place as long as people don't believe in other people.More Karel Capek quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It was a great thing to be a human being. It was something tremendous. Suddenly I'm conscious of a million sensations buzzing in me like bees in a hive. Gentlemen, it was a great thing.More Karel Capek quotes [09/07/2011 10:09:49]
