We all have wings, but they have not been of any avail to us and if we could tear them off, we would do so. - Franz Kafka (Dearest Father: Stories and Other Writings Quotes)

We all have wings, but they have not been of any avail to us and if we could tear them off, we would do so.[Wir alle haben Flügel, aber sie haben uns nichts genützt und könnten wir sie uns abreißen, wir täten es.]
