Quote by Robert Walser
That is all very senseless, but this senselessness has a pretty mouth, and it smiles.
This quote highlights the paradoxical nature of senselessness. It suggests that even though something may be irrational or lack meaning, it can still hold an alluring or attractive quality. The mention of a "pretty mouth" and a smiling face implies that senselessness can be enticing, seductive, or charming despite its lack of logic or purpose. Ultimately, the quote presents a contemplation on the complex nature of attractiveness and the allure of the nonsensical.
