George Z.

While the jury in the George Zimmerman murder trial deliberates, some things to ponder;
“Someone must have slandered Josef K., for one morning, without having done anything truly wrong, he was arrested.” ― Franz KafkaThe Trial
“The right understanding of any matter and a misunderstanding of the same matter do not wholly exclude each other.” ― Franz KafkaThe Trial
“No," said the priest, "you don't need to accept everything as true, you only have to accept it as necessary." "Depressing view," said K. "The lie made into the rule of the world.” ― Franz KafkaThe Trial
“I see, these books are probably law books, and it is an essential part of the justice dispensed here that you should be condemned not only in innocence but also in ignorance.” ― Franz KafkaThe Trial
“One must lie low, no matter how much it went against the grain, and try to understand that this great organization remained, so to speak, in a state of delicate balance, and that if someone took it upon himself to alter the dispositions of things around him, he ran the risk of losing his footing and falling to destruction, while the organization would simply right itself by some compensating reaction in another part of its machinery – since everything interlocked – and remain unchanged, unless, indeed, which was very probable, it became still more rigid, more vigilant, severer, and more ruthless.” ― Franz KafkaThe Trial
