"One morning, when Gregor Samsa woke from troubled dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a horrible vermin," (Kafka 1).
"For some reason, the tall, empty room where he was forced to remain made him feel uneasy as he lay there flat on the floor, even though he had been living in it for five years," (Kafka 18).
"Gregor's sister no longer thought about how she could please him but would hurriedly push some food or other into before she rushed out to work...," (Kafka 33).
"Another one however, immediately following it, hit squarely and lodged in his back; Gregor wanted to drive himself away, as if he could remove the surprising...," (Kafka 29).
"Mrs. Samsa made a movement as if she wanted to hold back the broom, but did not complete it. 'Now then,', said Mr. Samsa, 'let's give thanks to God for that'. He crossed himself, and the three women followed his example," (Kafka 41).
