"You need not leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. You need not even listen, simply wait, just learn to become quiet, still, and solitary. And the world will freely offer itself to you, unmasked. It has no choice; it will roll in ecstasy at your feet"

                    - Franz Kafka
