Hermann Hesse Quote: “We who bore the mark might well be considered by the rest of the world as strange, even as insane and dangerous.

Hermann Hesse Quote: “What is meditation? What is leaving one’s body? What is fasting? What is holding one’s breath? It is fleeing from the Self, it is a short escape of the agony of being a Self; it is a short numbing of the senses against the pain and the pointlessness of life.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “If a person were to concentrate all his will power on a certain end, then he would achieve it. That’s all.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “The words are not good for the secret meaning, everything always becomes a bit different, as soon as it is put into words, gets distorted a bit, a bit silly – yes, and this is also very good, and I like it a lot, I also very much agree with this, that this what is one man’s treasure and wisdom always sounds like foolishness to another person.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “I don’t know who lives there, but there must be a paradise of cleanliness and dust-free bourgeois existence behind that glass door, an Eden of order and painstaking devotion to little routines and chores that is touching.’ Since.”

Hermann Hesse Quote: “Life is always frightful. We cannot help it and we are responsible all the same. One’s born and at once one is guilty. You must have had a remarkable sort of religious education if you did not know that.”

Hermann Hesse Quote: “Every life has its radiance and beauty.”

Hermann Hesse Quote: “Too much thinking was still not good for me.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “I don’t know. I really don’t know. Perhaps that would be best, I thought I wanted it myself. But today I’m no longer sure what I really want and desire. Before, everything was simple, as simple as letters in my textbook. Now nothing is simple any more, not even the letters. Everything has taken on many meanings and faces. I don’t know what will become of me, I can’t think about that now.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “It is good, he thought, to taste for oneself all that it is necessary to know. Already as a child I learned that worldly desires and wealth were not good things. I have known this for a long time but have only now experienced it. And now I do know it, know it not only with my memory but with my eyes, with my heart, and with my stomach. How glad I am to know it!”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “I saw Demian’s face and remarked that it was not a boy’s face but a man’s and then I saw, or rather became aware, that it was not really the face of a man either; it had something different about it, almost a feminine element. And for the time being his face seemed neither masculine nor childish, neither old nor young but a hundred years old, almost timeless and bearing the mark of other periods of history than our own.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “I will not make a gift of myself, I must be won.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “The world, my friend Govinda, is not imperfect, or on a slow path towards perfection: no, it is perfect in every moment, all sin already carries the divine forgiveness in itself, all small children already have the old person in themselves, all infants already have death, all dying people the eternal life.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “The water changed to vapour and rose, became rain and came down again, became spring, brook and river, changed a new, flowed anew.”

Hermann Hesse Quote: “As far as teachers are concerned, they define young geniuses as those who are bad, disrespectful, smoke at fourteen, fall in love at fifteen, can be found at sixteen hanging out in bars, read forbidden books, write scandalous essays, occasionally stare down a teacher in class, are marked in the attendance book as rebels, and are budding candidates for room-arrest.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “For every true statement there is an opposite one that is also true; that language and the confines of time lead people to adhere to one fixed belief that does not account for the fullness of the truth. Because nature works in a self-sustaining cycle, every entity carries in it the potential for its opposite and so the world must always be considered complete.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “I like listening to music, but only the kind you play, absolute music, the kind that makes you feel that someone is rattling at the doors if heaven and hell. I like music very much, I think, because it’s so unconcerned with morality.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “In this hour, Siddhartha stopped fighting his fate, stopped suffering. On his face flourished the cheerfulness of a knowledge, which is no longer opposed by any will, which knows perfection, which is in agreement with the flow of events, with the current of life, full of sympathy for the pain of others, full of sympathy for the pleasure of others, devoted to the flow, belonging to the oneness.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Be aware of too much wisdom!”

Hermann Hesse Quote: “The mother of life could be called love or desire; she could also be called death, grave, or decay. Eve was the mother. She was the source of bliss as well as of death; eternally she gave birth and eternally she killed; her love was fused with cruelty.

But most people love to lose themselves.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “If a beautiful thing were to remain beautiful for all eternity, I’d be glad, but all the same I’d look at it with a colder eye.

Hermann Hesse Quote: “A person is afraid only when he isn’t at one with himself.”

Hermann Hesse Quote: “Whenever he is hungry and opens his bag, there are only pearls inside.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “My lie has been miserable and difficult, and yet to others and sometimes to myself, it has seemed rich and wonderful. Man’s life seems to me like a long, weary night that would be intolerable if there were not occasionally flashes of light, the sudden brightness of which is so comforting and wonderful, that the moments of their appearance cancel out and justify the years of darkness.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “No, my dear, how should I be sad? I, who have been rich and happy, have become even richer and happier now. My son has been given to me.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “I had often observed the sparkle in the eye of those who told me of it and I had always treated it with a half-superior, half-envious smile.”

Hermann Hesse Quote: “That is the way leaves fall around a tree in autumn, a tree unaware of the rain running down its sides, of the sun or the frost, and of life gradually retreating inward. The tree does not die. It waits.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Times of terror and the deepest misery may arrive, but if there is to be any happiness in this misery it can only be a spiritual happiness, related to the past in the rescue of the culture of early ages and to the future in a serene and indefatigable championship of the spirit in a time which would otherwise completely swallow up the material.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “His face was still more clever and spiritual than others, but it seldom smiled, and one after the other it was taking on the traits one so often observes in the faces of the wealthy: that look of dissatisfaction, infirmity, displeasure, lethargy, unkindness.
