„Vivamos primero, que las observaciones vendrán luego por sí solas.“ Jakob von Gunten

„Debería estar completamente solo en este mundo,
yo, Steiner, sin ninguna otra criatura.
Sin sol, sin cultura. Yo, desnudo sobre una gran piedra sin tormentas, sin nieve, sin bancos, sin dinero, sin tiempo y sin respiración.
Entonces, por fin, dejaría de tener miedo.“


„Estimado señor, le ruego que deje de creer en mí.“

„Hablando en serio: los que obedecen suelen ser una copia exacta de los que mandan.“ Jakob von Gunten

„Acaso durmiendo es cuando más cerca estamos de Dios.“ Jakob von Gunten

„Los versos que resuenan en su cerebro le parecen graznidos de cuervos; le gustaría arrancarse la memoria.“ Historias

„Se aburren quienes se pasan la vida esperando que algo los estimule desde fuera...“ Jakob von Gunten

„Ser joven es equivocarse; la juventud tiene que hablar y actuar irreflexivamente para que haya algún progreso“ The Assistant


„Los preámbulos son una manía de escritores alegres“

„That is all very senseless, but this senselessness has a pretty mouth, and it smiles.“ Jakob von Gunten

„I don't want a future, I want a present. To me this appears of greater value. You have a future only when you have no present, and when you have a present, you forget to even think about the future.“ The Tanners

„Every sensitive person carries in himself old cities enclosed by ancient walls“


„One is always half mad when one is shy of people.“ Jakob von Gunten

„How reprehensible it is when those blessed with commodities insist on ignoring the poor. Better to torment them, force them into indentured servitude, inflict compulsion and blows—this at least produces a connection, fury and a pounding heart, and these too constitute a form of relationship. But to cower in elegant homes behind golden garden gates, fearful lest the breath of warm humankind touch you, unable to indulge in extravagances for fear they might be glimpsed by the embittered oppressed, to oppress and yet lack the courage to show yourself as an oppressor, even to fear the ones you are oppressing, feeling ill at ease in your own wealth and begrudging others their ease, to resort to disagreeable weapons that require neither true audacity nor manly courage, to have money, but only money, without splendor: That’s what things look like in our cities at present“ The Tanners

„How small life is here
and how big nothingness.
The sky, tired of light,
has given everything to the snow.

The two trees bow
their heads to each other.
Clouds cross the world’s
silence in a circle dance“
Oppressive Light: Selected Poems by Robert Walser

„When we realize that words can destroy something good, wonderful, and dear, and that by keeping silent we can avoid causing the least damage or harm, it’s easy to stay silent.“ Masquerade and Other Stories
