Kafka Q & A ...

“Why is it meaningless to ask questions? To complain means to put a question and wait for the answer. But questions that don’t answer themselves at the very moment of their asking are never answered. No distance divides the interrogator from the one who answers him. There is no distance to overcome. Hence meaningless to ask and wait.”

(Franz Kafka, The Diaries:1910-1923. Trans. Martin Greenberg. p. 343)
