Friend Verses Quotes

Years ago a friend gave me what he called his Formula: How to Know Right from Wrong. The formula asks four questions based on three verses in 1 Corinthians: 1. "Everything is permissible for me" but not everything is beneficial (1 Corinthians 6:12). Question 1: Is it helpful physically, spiritually, and mentally? 2. "Everything is permissible for me" but I will not be mastered by anything (1 Corinthians 6:12). Question 2: Does it bring me under its power? 3. Therefore, if what I eat causes my brother to fall into sin, I will never eat meat again, so that I will not cause him to fall (1 Corinthians 8:13). Question 3: Does it hurt others? 4. So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31). Question 4: Does it glorify God?

When I composed those verses I was preoccupied less with music than with an experience-an experience in which that beautiful musical allegory had shown its moral side, had become an awakening and a summons to a life vocation. The imperative form of the poem which specially displeases you is not the expression of a command and a will to teach but a command and warning directed towards myself. Even if you were not fully aware of this, my friend, you could have read it in the closing lines. I experienced an insight, you see, a realization and an inner vision, and wished to impress and hammer the moral of this vision into myself. That is the reason why this poem has remained in my memory. Whether the verses are good or bad they have achieved their aim, for the warning has lived on within me and has not been forgotten. It rings anew for me again to-day, and that is a wonderful little experience which your scorn cannot take away from me.

— Hermann Hesse
