A Quote by Hermann Hesse on bliss, eternity, evil, good, illusions, suffering, time, and world

If time is not real, then the dividing line between this world and eternity, between suffering and bliss, between good and evil, is also an illusion.

A Quote by Hermann Hesse on opposites, truth, and words

In every truth, the opposite is equally true. A truth can only be expressed and enveloped in words if it is one-sided.

A Quote by Hermann Hesse on communication, knowledge, and wisdom

Knowledge can be communicated, but not wisdom. One can find it, live it, be fortified by it, do wonders through it, but one cannot communicate and teach it.

A Quote by Hermann Hesse on admiration, feeling, love, lovers, and separation

Lovers should not separate from each other after making love without admiring each other, without being conquered as well as conquering, so that no feeling of satiation or desolation arises nor the horrid feeling of misusing or having been misused.

A Quote by Hermann Hesse on guidance, people, travel, and path

Most people are like a falling leaf that drifts and turns in the air, flutters, and falls to the ground. But a few others are like stars which travel one defined path: no wind reaches them, they have within themselves their guide and path.

A Quote by Hermann Hesse on lies, study, and water

Toward seven o'clock every morning, I leave my study and step Out on the bright terrace; the sun already burns resplendent Between the shadows of the fig tree, makes the low wall of coarse Granite warm to the touch. Here my tools lie ready and waiting, Each one an intimate, an ally: the round basket for weeds: The zappetta, the small hoe with a short haft . . . There's a rake here as well, at at times a mattock and spade, Or two watering cans filled with water warmed by the sun. With my basket and small hoe in hand, facing the sun, I Go out for my morning walk.
