An ultimate liberation

It is no disproof of one’s presentiment of an ultimate liberation if the next day one’s imprisonment continues unchanged, or is even made straiter, or if it is even expressly stated that it will never end. All this can rather be the necessary preliminary to an ultimate liberation.

— Kafka, Diaries (trans. M. Greenberg)
