Hermann Hesse day

Va recomand sa cititi Jocul cu margele de sticla si Lupul de stepa. Ah, si Damien.

“If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself. What isn't part of ourselves doesn't disturb us”

"Every man is more than just himself; he also represents the unique, the very special and always significant and remarkable point at which the world's phenomena intersect, only once in this way and never again."

“Some of us think holding on makes us strong; but sometimes it is letting go.”

"One day I would be a better hand at the game. One day I would learn how to laugh."

"What you call passion is not spiritual force, but friction between the soul and the outside world"

The deity is within you, not in ideas and books. Truth is lived, not taught."

"Oh, love isn't there to make us happy. I believe it exists to show us how much we can endure."

“There's no reality except the one contained within us. That's why so many people live an unreal life. They take images outside them for reality and never allow the world within them to assert itself.”
