Quote by Gunther Grass
The human head is bigger than the globe. It conceives itself as containing more. It can think and rethink itself and ourselves from any desired point outside the gravitational pull of the earth. It starts by writing one thing and later reads itself as something else. The human head is monstrous.
This quote suggests that the human mind is boundless and has the capacity to imagine itself as larger than the world it inhabits. By being able to think and reflect, it allows us to detach ourselves from earthly limitations and view ourselves from an external perspective. The idea of writing and reading oneself signifies the ability to constantly change and evolve. The term "monstrous" here reflects the vast, incomprehensible power of the human mind compared to other beings.
