Birgit Mimy Raes Siddhartha

Don't read this book if you like a lot of action. It's an emotionol, psychological story. Beautifully written by Hesse.

Just finished reading the first part. I'm longing for more. Not only is it beautifully written with alot of metaphors, it's also interesting for those who want to learn more about Buddhism.

"But let me say no more. Words do the secret sense no good, it always goes somewhat off when one utters it aloud, it sounds somewhat false, somewhat foolish --- yes, and this too is very good and pleases me greatly, I also greatly agree with the following statement: What is a treasure and wisdom to one man always sounds like utter foolishness to another."

"Remember my dear: Transient is the world of forms, transient, highly transient are our clothing and the ways in which we dress our hair, just as our hair and bodies themselves."

"... His goal pulls him toward it, for he admits nothing into his soul that would resist the goal. This is what Siddhartha learned among the shramanas. This is what fools call magic and what they think of as the work of demons. Nothing is done by demons, there are no demons. Anyone can work magic, anyone can reach his goals, if he can think, if he can wait, if he can fast."
