A Kafka challenge

The quotation below is apparently from Kafka. But I can't find it.
If it could have been otherwise it would have been otherwise.
Does anyone out there know where it comes from? Please either leave a comment or email me (at the address just above the blogroll below). Many thanks in advance.

    It's actually a comment I made after an injury-time equaliser against one of me old teams a few years back.

    I'm wondering if the quote is actually from Hegel

  3. Thanks Diane. Any walking concordances to Hegel out there?
