Famous quotes by hermann hesse:

    One never reaches home, but wherever friendly paths intersect the whole world looks like home for a time.
    Hermann Hesse (1877–1962)

    To study history means submitting to chaos and nevertheless retaining faith in order and meaning. It is a very serious task, young man, and possibly a tragic one.
    Hermann Hesse (1877–1962)

    I am fond of music I think because it is so amoral. Everything else is moral and I am after something that isn’t. I have always found moralizing intolerable.
    Hermann Hesse (1877–1962)

    The bourgeois treasures nothing more highly than the self.... And so at the cost of intensity he achieves his own preservation and security. His harvest is a quiet mind which he prefers to being possessed by God, as he prefers comfort to pleasure, convenience to liberty, and a pleasant temperature to that deathly inner consuming fire.
