from Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse 4


"Most people are like falling leaf which is blown and turned around through the air, as it wavers, and tumbles to the ground.
But others, a few are like stars, they go on a fixed course, no wind reaches them, in themselves they have their law and their course.
Among all the learned men and Samanas, there was one of this kind, a perfected one, I'll never be able to forget him.
Gautama. "
