Hermann Hesse on Wisdom

Wisdom is not communicable. The wisdom which a wise man tries to communicate always sounds foolish. Knowledge can be communicated, but not wisdom. One can find it, live it, be fortified by it, do wonders through it, but one cannot communicate and teach it. (p. 142). Words do not express thoughts very well. They always become a little different immediately they are expressed, a little distorted, a little foolish. (p. 145)

Siddharta, Hermann Hesse

Mudah-mudahan akan segera tiba waktu dimana saya bisa membaca buku karya Hermann Hesse, seorang penulis yang memenangkan hadiah Nobel untuk bidang literatur pada tahun 1946 (bukan untuk buku ini).
