Stanisław Jerzy Lec (born Baron Stanisław Jerzy de Tusch-Letz)

is credited with the marvellous injunction:
DO NOT EXPECT TOO MUCH OF THE END OF THE WORLD !

Sculpture by Isamu Krieger


















Here are some of Lec's lesser apophthegms:
  • The exit is usually where the entrance was.
  • He who limps is still walking.
  • In a war of ideas it is people who get killed.
  • I am against using death as a punishment. I am also against using it as a reward.
  • Is it progress if a cannibal learns to use a knife and fork ?
  • Suppose you succeed in breaking down the wall with your head.
    What, then, will you do in the next cell?
