Bohumil Hrabal Quotes: Because This Week Ive Started In On A

Because This Week I've Started In On A Hundred Reproductions Of Rembrandt Van Rijn, A Hundred Portraits Of The Old Artist With The Mushroom Face, The Face Of A Man Pushed To The Brink Of Eternity By Art And Drink, The Door Handle Starting To Turn, The Final Door Pushed Open From Without By An Unknown Hand, And I'm Beginning To Have His Puff-paste Face, That Peeling, Piss-soaked Wall Of A Face, I'm Beginning To Smile His Half-moronic Smile, To Look At The World From The Other Side Of Human Causes And Events, And All My Bales These Days Are Framed With That Portrait Of Rembrandt Van Rijn As An Old Man While I Keep Filling My Drum With Wastepaper And Open Books.
— Bohumil Hrabal —
