"..Each man's life represents a road towards himself, an attempt at such a road, the intimidation of a path.. No man has ever been entirely and completely himself. Yet each one strives to become that--one in an awkward, the other in a more intelligent way, each as best as he can."

Herman Hesse Demian

This quote is so well expressed. I read that books years ago and think I will reread it.

I read Demian twice in two different languages. A frightening book I would say. A favorite of mine. Thanks for sharing this extract.
