Famous quotes containing the words max frisch and/or frisch:

    It is conceivable at least that a late generation, such as we presumably are, has particular need of the sketch, in order not to be strangled to death by inherited conceptions which preclude new births.... The sketch has direction, but no ending; the sketch as reflection of a view of life that is no longer conclusive, or is not yet conclusive.
    Max Frisch (1911–1991)

    A man with convictions finds an answer for everything. Convictions are the best form of protection against the living truth.
