  1. Such great quotes. I especially loved his quote about solitude which I think I’ll remember for quite some time now. The passage about trees was also true and beautiful, and the last quote was one I could hauntingly relate to.

  2. Hesse was my go-to writer in highschool. Narziss und Goldmund to this day is a book I look back on when I’ve found myself at crossroads with others. Same with Siddhartha, but he had a lot of winners. Still think back to Beneath The Wheel.
