“ I am a poet, a seeker, and a confessor, obligated to truth and sincerity. I have a charge, albeit small and confined: to help other seekers to Understand and to cope with the world, if only by assuring them that they are not alone.” -    Hermann Hesse, 1950


“Why didn’t I appreciate it while I had it? Because then, I sometimes think, I hadn’t had it yet. Only what slips through one’s fingers, only what is never expressed in words, has no thoughts, exists completely. That is the price of proximity: you don’t see it. Don’t know it’s there. Then it’s over, then you see it.” - (Knausgaard 110)
