The more horses you yoke, the quicker everything will go - not the rending of the block from its foundations, which is impossible, but the snapping of the traces and with that the gay and empty journey.

It is a good statement of Zen koan practice leading to satori ( the gay and empty journey"). The mystery is how Franz Kafka, writing in the very early 20th century in Prague and apparently with no awareness of Zen, came up with it.

Adhere to your purpose and you will soon feel as well as you ever did. On the contrary, if you falter, and give up, you will lose the power of keeping any resolution, and will regret it all your life.
--June 28, 1862 Letter to Quintin Campbell
`Abraham Lincoln

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects. -Robert A. Heinlein

When I insert the link-in the hyperlink-the image won't come up. However, the others (above) worked. Maybe I forgot how. Or, maybe this one was meant to be.

Suspect

If you are going to hyperlink an image you need to open the image. The link you posted was to the preview page, and it did open to that page.

Or you can post the image rather than linking to it as described in the video which is probably better (if it's safe for work) for easy viewing without having to flick a link for threads like this one.
