‘”In our relations with other people we mainly discuss and evaluate their character and behaviour. This is why I have withdrawn from nearly all so-called relations. This has made my old age rather lonely.” I wrote in my diary that night when she came to ask if my friend and admirer could pay me a visit the next day. I refused and told her to tell my friend that Tuesdays are not good to come by, because on Tuesdays I weep.’
Great Jonathan Meese and Kati Heck in the back.
