Hermann Hesse Quote: “Like one who has eaten and drunk too much and vomits painfully and then feels better, so did the restless man wish he could rid himself with one terrific heave of these pleasures, of these habits of this entirely senseless life.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Therefore, it seems to me that everything that exists is good – death as well as life, sin as well as holiness, wisdom as well as folly. Everything is necessary, everything needs only my agreement, my assent, my loving understanding; then all is well with me and nothing can harm me.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “I called the world of phenomena an illusion, I called my eyes and my tongue and accident, valueless phenomena. No, that is all over; I have awakened, I have really awakened and have just been born today.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Home is neither here nor there. Home is within you, or home is nowhere at all.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “I’m not kidding. I’m telling you what I’ve found. Knowledge can be conveyed, but not wisdom. It can be found, it can be lived, it is possible to be carried by it, miracles can be performed with it, but it cannot be expressed in words and taught. This was what I, even as a young man, sometimes suspected, what has driven me away from the teachers.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Every politician in the world is all for revolution, reason, and disarmament-but only in enemy countries, not in his own.”

Hermann Hesse Quote: “I had to experience despair, I had to sink to the greatest mental depths, to thoughts of suicide, in order to experience grace, to hear Om again, to sleep deeply again and to awaken refreshed again. I had to become a fool again in order to find Atman in myself. I had to sin in order to live again. Whither will my path yet lead me? This path is stupid, it goes in spirals, perhaps in circles, but whichever way it goes, I will follow it. He was aware of a great happiness mounting within him.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “His life oscillates, as everyone’s does, not merely between two poles, such as the body and the spirit, the saint and the sinner, but between thousands and thousands.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “What you search is not necessarily the same as what you find. When you let go of the searching, you start finding.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “That seems to be the way of things. Everyone takes, everyone gives. Life is like that.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “A father can pass on his nose and eyes and even his intelligence to his child, but not his soul. In every human being the soul is new.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “It was lovely, and tempting, to exert power over men and to shine before others, but power also had its perditions and perils.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “I sped through heaven and saw god at work. I suffered holy pains. I dropped all my defenses and was afraid of nothing in the world. I accepted all things and to all things I gave up my heart.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “She stood a moment before my eyes, clearly and painfully, loved and deeply woven into my destiny; then fell away again in a deep oblivion, at a half regretted distance.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “A wild longing for strong emotions and sensations seethes in me, a rage against this toneless, flat, normal and sterile life.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Once you are able to make your request in such a way that you will be quite certain of its fulfillment, then the fulfillment will come.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “I was out of my bed in one second, trembling with excitement, and I dashed to the door and into the adjoining room, where I could watch the streets below from the windows.”

Hermann Hesse Quote: “Smiling, Siddhartha felt happiness at the friendship and friendliness of the ferryman. He is like Govinda, he thought, smiling. All the people I meet upon my way are like Govinda. All of them are grateful, though they themselves have cause to expect gratitude. All of them are deferential, all are eager to be a friend, to obey and think little. People are children.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “The sacred sense of beyond, of timelessness, of a world which had an eternal value and the substance of which was divine had been given back to me today by this friend of mine who taught me dancing.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “I am homeless, a Brahmin’s son and a samana.”

Hermann Hesse Quote: “Among the letters my readers write me, there is a certain category which is continuously growing, and which I see as a symptom of the increasing intellectualization of the relationship between readers and literature.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “During the dark hours I felt my sick heart expand and beat more furiously, and I no longer made any distinction between pleasure and pain, but one was similar to the other; both hurt and both were precious. Whether my inner life went well or badly, my discovered strength stood peacefully outside looking on and knew that light and dark were closely related and that sorrow and peace were rhythm, part and spirit of the same great music.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Were not the gods forms created like me and you, mortal, transient?”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Most people, Kamala, are like a falling leaf, which is blown and is turning around through the air, and wavers, and tumbles to the ground. But others, a few, are like stars, they go on a fixed course, no wind reaches them, in themselves they have their law and their course.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “I had grown a thin mustache, I was a full-grown man, and yet I was completely helpless and without a goal in life.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “And everything together, all voices, all goals, all yearning, all suffering, all pleasure, all that was good and evil, all of this together was the world. All of it together was the flow of events, was the music of life.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Teaching and surrounded by disciples, he was wandering through the land, with no property, with no home, with no wife, in the yellow cloak of an ascetic, but with a serene brow: a blissful man.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “You learned people and artists have, no doubt, all sorts of superior things in your heads; but you’re human beings like the rest of us, and we, too, have our dreams and fancies.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Quite a number of people are able to feel the beauty of the world profoundly and vastly, and to carry high, noble images in their souls, but they are unable to exteriorize these images, to create them for the enjoyment of others, to communicate them.”

Hermann Hesse Quote: “Forgive me, father, I am not certain what my own wishes are. I shall always take pleasure in study, how could it be otherwise?

Hermann Hesse Quote: “I see that you think more than you can express. But, if that’s the case, you must also know that you have never fully lived out your thoughts, and that isn’t good. Only the thoughts that we live out have any value. You knew that your ‘permissible world’ was only half the world, and you tried to hide away the second half from yourself, the way clergymen and teachers do. You won’t succeed! No one can do that when he has once begun to think.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “All over, people were seeking “freedom” and “happiness” somewhere behind themselves, out of the sheer fear of being reminded of their own responsibilities and being admonished to travel their own path.”
