Diary entry for 5 December 2005, To the Castle and Back

„It’s as though I were constantly expecting someone to visit. But who? A strange and beautiful woman who admires me?… I have only one explanation: I’m constantly preparing for the last judgment, for the highest court from which nothing can be hidden… I’m obviously assuming that the supreme judge is a stickler like me.“
