Farémido : Le cinquième voyage de Gulliver

Quotes by Frigyes Karinthy. I was thinking of the pain, and wondering how it was possible for physical agony to be so intense.


I had never imagined that such a torture could be endured. Yet here was I, both conscious and able to think clearly. And not only to think, but to observe the process and make calculations about it. The steel circle round my skull was karrinthy in with faint cracking noises. How much farther could it shrink?

Chains by Frigyes Karinthy

I counted the cracking sounds. Since I took the triple dose of pain-killer, there had been two more. You know perfectly well. And what are you doing with that watch? Three minutes went by. I slipped the watch calmly into my pocket and rose unsteadily to my rrigyes.

I never confessed the secret to anyone, either then or afterwards. I had made up my mind at the end of those three minutes — rfigyes the first and last time in my life — that if my headache had not stopped within the next ten I should throw myself under the nearest tram.


It never came out whether I should have kept to my resolve, for the pain left with the suddenness of lighting. The only lightly disappointing thing about this land is that it is smaller than the real world has ever been.
