Before it goes off

«They seem to be pleasant people. Actually, people who make efforts to be successful are terribly alike each other. They all have the same face. Not really, and yet they do. They're all alike in their rapid kindness, which just comes and goes. I think this is because of the fear which these people feel. They deal with persons and objects, one after the other, only so that they can cope again with some new thing that also seems to be demanding attention. They don't despise anyone, these good people, and yet perhaps they despise everything but they aren't allowed to show it because they're frightened of being suddenly incautious...»
Robert Walser in "Jakob von Guten"
