Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse

I can think. I can wait. I can fast

The most important line from the book because a person who can think clearly in up and down of life and can wait patiently for the result of his deeds and can fast for his/her desires, food and action can achieve a lot of things in life.

Sharing some highlights from the book which are worth revisiting again and again

  • he doesn’t let anything enter his soul which might oppose the goal.

  • ‘Writing is good, thinking is better. Being smart is good, being patient is better.’

  • he learned from it to listen, to pay close attention with a quiet heart, with a waiting, 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?’

Cheers!
