Hermann Hesse Quote: “And all the voices, all the goals, all the yearnings, all the sorrows, all the pleasures, all the good and evil, all of them together was the world. All of them together was the stream of events, the music of life.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “What isn’t part of ourselves doesn’t disturb us.”

Hermann Hesse Quote: “Only the ideas that we really live have any value.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Wisdom is not communicable. The wisdom which a wise man tries to communicate always sounds foolish.”

Hermann Hesse Quote: “The bourgeois today burns as heretics and hangs as criminals those to whom he erects monuments tomorrow.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “That I know nothing about myself, that Siddhartha has remained thus alien and unknown to me, stems from one cause, a single cause: I was afraid of myself, I was fleeing from myself! I searched Atman, I searched Brahmin, I was willing to dissect myself and peel off all of its layers, to find the core of all peels in its unknown interior, the Atman, life, the divine part, the ultimate part. But I have lost myself in the process.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Look: We hate nothing that exists, not even death, suffering and dying, does not horrify our souls, as long as we learn more deeply to love.”

Hermann Hesse Quote: “Every natural form is latent within us, originates in the soul whose essence is eternity, whose essence we cannot know but which most often intimates itself to us as the power to love and create.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “The way to innocence, to the uncreated and to God leads on, not back, not back to the wolf or to the child, but ever further into sin, ever deeper into human life.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Gratitude is not a virtue I believe in, and to me it seems hypocritical to expect it from a child.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Animals are sad as a rule,” she went on. “And when a man is sad – I don’t mean because he has a toothache or has lost some money, but because he sees, for once in a way, how it all is with life and everything, and is sad in earnest – he always looks a little like an animal. He looks not only sad, but more right and more beautiful than usual. That’s how it is, and that’s how you looked, Steppenwolf, when I saw you for the first time.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Remember this: one can be a strict logician or grammarian and at the same time full of imagination and music.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Every path leads homeward, every step is birth, every step is death, every grave is mother.”

Hermann Hesse Quote: “The tree does not die, it waits.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Once it happened, as I lay awake at night, that I suddenly spoke in verses, in verses so beautiful and strange that I did not venture to think of writing them down, and then in the morning they vanished; and yet they lay hidden within me like the hard kernel within an old brittle husk.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “The cup was emptied and would never be filled again.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Those who are too lazy and comfortable to think for themselves and be their own judges obey the laws. Others sense their own laws within them.”
