Hilarious quotes from the novel The Good Soldier Švejk

    * "Jesus Christ was innocent too,' said Svejk, 'and all the same they crucified him. No one anywhere has ever worried about a man being innocent. Maul halten und weiter dienen ('Grin and bear it and get on with the job') - as they used to tell us in the army. That's the best and finest thing of all."

    * "After debauches and orgies there always follows the moral hangover."

    * "The lieutenant’s fooling around again with the telegraph girl at the station,” said the corporal, after he had gone. “He’s been running after her for a fortnight and he’s always frightfully furious when he comes from the telegraph office and he says about her: “She’s a whore. She won’t sleep with me!"

    * "When Švejk subsequently described life in the lunatic asylum, he did so in exceptionally eulogistic terms: 'I really don't know why those loonies get so angry when they're kept there. You can crawl naked on the floor, howl like a jackal, rage and bite. If anyone did this anywhere on the promenade people would be astonished, but there it's the most common or garden thing to do. There's a freedom there which not even Socialists have ever dreamed of."

These hilarious quotes from The Good Soldier Švejk will help you deal with life cheerfully and calmly.
