Hermann Hesse Quote

I have never seen a man look and smile, sit and walk like that, he thought. I, also, would like to look and smile, sit and walk like that, so free, so worthy, so restrained, so candid, so childlike and mysterious. A man only looks and walks like that when he has conquered his self. I also will conquer my self.


H. Rosner, trans. (Bantam: 1971), p. 35 - Siddhartha (1922)
