Today I've Learned Quotes

You see, King, we have a legend - I used to believe that it was all fairy-tale rubbish and empty smoke. It is a legend about how such things as war and death and despair were common in our country at one time. These terrible words, which we have long since stopped using in our language, can be read in collections of our old tales, and they sound awful to us and even a little ridiculous. Today Ive learned that these tales are all true ... But now tell me, dont you have in your soul a sort of intimation that youre not doing the right thing? Dont you have a yearning for bright, serene gods, for sensible and cheerful leaders and mentors? Dont you ever dream in your sleep about another, more beautiful life where nobody is envious of others, where reason and order prevails, where people treat other people only with cheerfulness and considerations?
— Hermann Hesse —
