chacun sait bien, dans un recoin de son âme, que le suicide représente une issue, mais que celle-ci n'est qu'une solution de fortune, un peu mesquine et illégitime. au fond, il est plus noble et beau d'être vaincu et abattu par la vie que par soi-même. #hesse
... the river is everywhere at once, at the source and at the mouth, at the waterfall, at the ferry, at the rapids, in the sea, in the mountains, everywhere at once, and that there is only the present time for it, not the shadow of the past, not the shadow of the future. Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha #mississippiriver#MarkTwain#Hesse#presentmoment
As every flower fades and as all youth
Departs, so life at every stage,
So every virtue, so our grasp of truth,
Blooms in its day and may not last forever.
Since life may summon us at every age
Be ready, heart, for parting, new endeavor,
Be ready bravely and without remorse
To find new light that old ties cannot give.
In all beginnings dwells a magic force
For guarding us and helping us to live. - #Hesse#edsheeran#shapeofyou#divide#hardrock
Porque es el cielo el que te espera. Mira, esto es la magia: intercambiar el fuera y el dentro. Pero no por el impulso, ni con la angustia, como tú lo has hecho, sino libremente, voluntariamente. Llama al pasado, llama al futuro: ¡ambos se hallan en ti! Hasta hoy has sido el esclavo del dentro. Aprende a ser su dueño. Eso es la magia.
#Seligenstadt is one of the oldest towns in #Germany and was already of great importance in Carolingian times. Just look at its picturesque Old Town full of timber-frame houses from the 17th and 18th centuries. It is obviously amazing and feels like a fairytale.
This is the living room of Sally and Victor Ganz, two famous art collectors from the 20th century. The couple bought many works from a small group of artists, but their devotion was the key to their success.

Sant’Abbondio in Collina d’Oro - Across to the cemetery where German author Hermann Hesse is buried - Herman Hesse spent most of his time living in Montagnola where he was writing his books, essays, paintings and poems.
From the poem „Stufen“ from 1941: „Und jedem Anfang wohnt ein Zauber inne,
Der uns beschützt und der uns hilft, zu leben.“
which means more or less that after bad times comes something new which brings along new magic and that protects us and gives us the power to go on in life.
