Hermann Hesse 140th Birthday ♥♥

photo probably by his son Martin Hesse, 1935


❝ Because the world is so full of death and horror,
I try again and again to console my heart
and pick the flowers that grow in the midst of hell.

from Narcissus and Goldmund

❝ I have no right to call myself one who knows. 

I was one who seeks, and I still am, but I no longer seek 
in the stars or in books; I'm beginning to hear the teachings 
of my blood pulsing within me.  

from Demian

- Hermann Hesse -

July 2, 1877 - August 9, 1962
