Dactylorhiza elata (Poir.) Soó
One's need for loneliness is not satisfied if one sits at a table alone. There must be empty chairs as well. If the waiter takes away a chair on which no one is sitting, I feel a void and my sociability is aroused. I can't live without empty chairs.
Karl Kraus, Half-Truths & One-and-a-Half Truths (Carcanet, trad. Harry Zohn, 1976)
