Hermann Hesse 1877–1962
German novelist and poet 

  1. If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself. What isn't part of ourselves doesn't disturb us.
    Demian (1919) ch. 6
  2. One never reaches home, but wherever friendly paths intersect the whole world looks like home for a time.
    Demian (1919) ch. 7
  3. Happiness is a how, not a what; a talent, not an object.
