  • Wisdom

    Hermann Hesse, Germany

    Wisdom is nothing but a preparation of the soul, a capacity, a secret art of thinking, feeling and breathing thoughts of unity at every moment of life.

  • A call of love

    Hermann Hesse, Germany

    (Submitted by Natalya Gretchenko, Russia)

    The call of death is a call of love. Death can be sweet if we answer it in the affirmative, if we accept it as one of the great eternal forms of life and transformation.
