„I can prove at any time that my education tried to make another person out of me than the one I became.“

—  Franz Kafka author 1883 - 1924
Context: I can prove at any time that my education tried to make another person out of me than the one I became. It is for the harm, therefore, that my educators could have done me in accordance with their intentions that I reproach them; I demand from their hands the person I now am, and since they cannot give him to me, I make of my reproach and laughter a drumbeat sounding in the world beyond. (July 1910)
